Whip 150mls of the cream and then fold it into the egg and sugar mix.

Spread the cream mixture over the first sponge cake (bottom layer).

Then lay the chopped strawberries over the top of the cream, covering the cake.

Whip 250mls of the cream and then spread all over the top of the cake and around the sides.

  2. This looks amazing and something my nan would love! Although strawberries aren’t in season for us at the moment I think I could probably still find some to use!
