I started salivating when I read strawberry shortcake, but then I saw the photo. :(

That is so not strawberry shortcake.

Re: Heartbreak
At least in Singapore, strawberry shortcake has evolved into a variation like this. In most cafes here, strawberry shortcakes would look something like this. No crisp biscuit or scone...

I do like what we get over here though. Fluffy vanilla sponge and cream always scores points with me. <3

They are still YUM
While it isn't so very strawberry shortcake, it is very genoise a la fraise! I saw them almost every time I stepped into a patisserie in France.

Here (in the US) strawberry shortcake could be anything from spongecake and whipped cream to biscuit and poured cream. The only real common denominator is the strawberries. You never know.

Personally, I like 'em all as long as the cream is real and not that "topping" stuff.

Oh this cream was divine! Dense, smooth and sweet but still fluffy somehow... I don't know how that's even possible... <3

It's possible. The cream needs to be whipped with some sugar until it almost winds up being butter. You're right--divine!

I keep thinking about the strawberry shortcake... :D
