Strawberry Yogurt Cake
It just make you feel so great when people like what you are doing and appreciate the work of your hand . I have a friend who love my cake and place an order for someone birthday celebration . Not too sure what exactly they will love , is always best to use the ingredient that is fresh or in the season.
Yes is winter in Australia. How different is it when we have winter in the middle of year and the rest is summer hot hot . Since is winter we will have all the great berry fruits . I asked my friend what fruit she preferred , strawberry or blueberry. She choose strawberry as her daughter love that fruit. I always touch by the heart of a mother, as I knew blueberry is my friend's favourite.
So this is the beautiful cake that I have make and I follow the recipe from ->Table for 2 Strawberry Yogurt Cake
3 layer of Sponge cake ( I used my sponge cake recipe ->Lychee Lime Yogurt Mousse Cake

600gm Strawberry yogurt (original recipe is 500g , mine is a 3 layer cake)
200gm Whipping cream (Pouring cream) ( + 50g of whipping cream on decoration )
1 3/4 Tbsp of Gelatin
1. Put water in a bowl , sprinkle gelatin on top . Let it bloom and heat up in microwave for 30sc or let it sit in a bowl of hot water to dissolve the gelatin.
2. Beat the pouring cream with hand held mixer in a cold metal bowl till soft peak.
3. Fold in the whipping cream in the strawberry yogurt ,combine it well.Sprinkle the gelatin in and incorporate it well to the yogurt cream mixture.
Assemble the cake :

2. Pour in 1/3 of the yogurt mixture in . Smooth the surface.
3. Place second piece of sponge cake on top of the yogurt mixture.
4. Pour in another 1/3 of the yogurt mixture in smooth the surface.
5. Place the last piece of sponge cake on the top of the yogurt mixture .
6. Pour in all the yogurt mixture and smooth the surface well . As this will be the top of your cake.
Let it chill in fridge at least 4 hours or overnight.
Carefully dislocate the cake from the springfoam mold . And decorate with strawberry on top.
