Learn how to make soft short cake decorated with fresh cream and fruits.

This week’s tutorial is a little different to what I normally do. I show you a recipe for a very light and soft vanilla sponge cake and simply decorate it with fresh cream and fruits. Let me know in the comments what you think and if you enjoy this tutorial. If it is well received, I will make more just like it.

  • Thank you so much for your tutorials! Did you use Krem santi as mock cream/ Whipping cream which you mixed it with whipped fresh cream?
    Thank you

    • Inside I use fresh cream and whipping cream mixture, outside whipping cream only. Fresh cream means real cream extracted from real raw milk. Whipping cream means different in different countries. Please check Wikipedia for more info. What I mean with whipping cream is a cream produced from more vegetable fats which has higher melting points than real butter and also added whitening and stabilizing components like gums e,t,c.

  • I always have hard time to make whipped cream sturdy. Do you have a method or recipe?

  • What a wonderful way of creating a simple but mouth-watering cake.

  • Super! Thanks a lot! Please make more such videos!
