  5. To decorate: remove stems from strawberries and cut in half. Toss through caster sugar and allow to macerate for 30 minutes or until sugar has dissolved. Whisk pouring cream, vanilla extract and icing sugar until soft peaks form.
  6. To serve: turn out the cake onto a serving plate and spoon over the icing. Allow to set for 10 minutes and spoon over strawberries. Serve with whipped cream.

Cook’s Note

This recipe makes one 20cm x 5cm sponge. Mark used a bundt tin which requires a double recipe. Feel free to use whatever shape you have at hand.

If you have more mouths to feed, make a double or triple recipe and stack them up, with cream and strawberries in the middle.
