    strawberry cream cake recipe- i had made this strawberry cream cake quite some

    time back. with the christmas coming up in a days time, i thought why not write this

    post. strawberries are in season in india, so you can make a good use of them in this


    i had made theeggless vanilla cake recipespecifically to make this cake. you can

    use any sponge cake or vanilla cake as a base. the cake is sandwiched with

    strawberry cream icingand topped with a whipped cream frosting. i have used fresh

    strawberries to make this cake but you can use canned strawberries also.

    i have used amul cream to make this icing. as you will see in the pics, the amul cream

    really worked well to my surprise to give stiff peaks. i used icing sugar to make the

    cream icing and that helped the cream to get stiff peaks. otherwise its difficult to whipamul cream really well. later i tried with sugar to get stiff peaks but it did not happen as

    good as this one.

    i have not been able to give a professional touch to this strawberry

    cream cakeas i did not have a palette knife nor a cake stand. with a regular spatula i

    spread & evened the icing. i did not even slice the risen dome from the top. the

    perfection does not matter, when you are making such desserts for your loved ones.

    what matters is that they enjoy the treat you made for them.

    this cake was a surprise as i never knew that my hubby is fond of cakes with cream

    icings. i shall be adding more pastries and cakes with icings recipes in the future.

    this is a rich creamy cakeand meant for festive occasions or birthday or anniversary

    celebrations. you can make the whole cake a day before and cover and keep in the

    fridge, so that the sliced strawberries on the top dont dry out

    in the step by step, i am sharing the filling and frosting pics. you can see thestep by

    step eggless vanilla cake the recipe details below, i have mentioned the

    ingredients and process of making the eggless vanilla cake.

    with this rich festive cake, wishing everybody a merry christmas and happy new year in
