Mimichi already anticipated a cake, but the question was just what cake I was going to make. A day before she actually asked me if I was actually going to make a cake because she didn't see any hint of a cake being built at all.. Well, of course I did! Here is a Mother's Day version of a cake that have been much neglected ever since I have left London - Green Tea Strawberry Shortcake.
Chiffon cake brings back a lot of childhood memories, with visits to the UCC cafe with my parents. Their chiffon cake hasn't change at all since then! Still a lot of cream and still fluffy... I wouldn't have ever imagine then that I would be working as a chef and making one of these!
Many people have feared making them, mostly because of the meringue and/or the possibility of the cake being deflated after it is out of the oven. However, once you understand the basics and the problems behind it, you will be able to tackle this cake without any worries (well, maybe less worries!!!)
