Strawberry cake with mirror glaze

 A simple cake using a sponge, cream and chocolate glaze with strawberries to decorate.
I find this easy to make and it looks amazing.
Here is my simple step by step tutorial so you can make one too.
 
 
For a 7 inch sponge you will need:
 
3 egg yolks
20g caster sugar
1/2.Tsp vanilla extract
 
3 egg whites
70g caster sugar
 
90g plain flour
 
30g melted butter

Cut you sponge into 3 layers and fill with fruits and cream.
 
I used 500ml of cream and 2 Tbsp of icing sugar for this cake.
 And lots of strawberries for the filling and to decorate.

Below is the picture tutorial how I assembled the cake.
Hope you like it and post me a photo on my Face book page at Mandy's baking journey if you have made one. I be happy to hear from you
 
 
Here is a short video to show you how I make the dripping effects.

    1. It's a cream alternative, whipping cream.
