Matcha Strawberry Shortcake: Bake and enjoy it!

Because baking is my hobby, but after making, I need some people to enjoy it too. ^^

Today I decided to make very small cake, haha, this Green tea strawberry shortcake is only 12 cm. Slicing cake into equal thickness is not easy, so I baked it in sheet pan then cut it into slices. Green tea and strawberry is very good combination, the bitterness, tangy and sweet come with the richness of the whipping cream. 
When my nephew ate this cake he said that he really like it but why it's so small, ^^, and my cake gone in a second. 
Serve this cake with hot tea is the best choice for me, and with this size, may be I can eat it all by myself (if I have a chance, haha)
