Anyways, since Valentine's day, I made a couple of batches of cupcakes for my labmates, but I felt it was too cliché to exhibit them on the blog because EVERYBODY was doing that, hence it has been awfully quiet over here.
Two days ago, three hours after I was furiously typing away at my materials and methods section of my thesis, I decided it was time to get out of the house and do a little bit of grocery shopping. When I saw this, I knew what I had to make.
I practically felt myself salivating while picking up this crate of bright and shiny berries. So home I went in glee, and encroached into my writing schedule to prepare the cake that would make me so happy.
Oh yes this pretty confection with luscious strawberries and whipped cream did lift my spirits, and joy has to be shared with all. :)
P.S: I was not really happy with the sponge cake I made, so pardon me for not posting the recipe just yet. It was a bit dense even though I whipped the whites separately before folding in the rest of the ingredients. Frosting was using crème chantilly.
