Strawberry Short Cake

Today is Ling's mother-in-law's 71st birthday. 

Nowadays, Ling will try to bake instead of buying from a cake shop.  Remember, she has a new oven?  Trying to make full use of it :) 

Finally, she decided on a Strawberry Shortcake with Chantilly Cream.  This is her 3rd tries on the cake.  1st time, our dear friend, Diana baked the cake using her own oven, so the cake turned out beautifully.  Ling did the frosting for the cake and everyone loves it.  2nd time, Ling baked the cake herself using her microwave oven and it was a total flop.  Her cake came out half cooked.  The top part was alright but the bottom was not cooked.

This time round, she was quite confident that the cake will come out alright since it's going to be bake in the new oven (Fingers crossed).  And YES, the cake did come out beautifully although it did sink a bit after cooling. Ling then chilled the cake overnight in the fridge.  The next day, she frost the cake and decorate it. 
Here is the finished product!!

The verdict? Mother-in-Law loved it and so does everyone else.  Texture of cake was soft and the fresh cream also complements the cake very well.  This cake is "Super Yummy"

Ling didnt miss out the traditional "red hard boiled eggs" 红鸡蛋 for birthday celebration.


  1. Agree with you, Ling did a good job this time :)
