This one was very yummy, and I agree with the description of it being kind of like a strawberry shortcake. It hit that balance point of fluffy cake with juicy strawberries and cream soaking in, to just the right texture. I made it with fresh local strawberries - the best!
I have been incredibly busy at work, so despite the fact that I did make this in time for the "deadline" (is there really a deadline when one is baking for fun?), I just now got to posting it.
I really like cakes with multiple thin layers with filling between. - this one has strawberries and whipped cream, with more whipped cream on the outside. It can be tricky to cut the layers - even with a sharp serrated knife, I find that I don't always cut evenly. Luckily it was fairly forgiving, especially since you cover the whole thing in whipped cream, so no one can see the evenness of the layers you cut.
