This cake is absolute heaven. Lightly sweet with full strawberry flavor. A nice twist on your traditional strawberry shortcake. Has the hint of vanilla in the cake that is light and airy, the layer has fresh strawberry reduction which adds just the right amount of sweetness, top this with fresh cut strawberries and beautiful whipped cream and the outside?? Well nothing short of amazing since this is Swiss Meringue Buttercream and that is not your typical buttercream by any means of the imagination. Put them all together and you have a burst of yumminess all in one bite.
This is delicate and light and goes well with any meal that has cheeses and heavy creams like my Creamy Crab Filled Shells with Seasoned Béchamel Sauce. The crisp mildly baked and warmed apples mixed with a buttery biscuit add the rich gooey flavors of cinnamon and top that all off with the coolness of the freshly made ice cream and fluffy white chocolate mousse????? You will be in HEAVEN. This is such a nice dessert.
