イチゴのショートケーキ: Japanese Strawberry shortcake, your way

Many people love it, and the cake is so simple, only 3 mains elements: sweet Chantilly cream, sponge cake and strawberry, but the cake is so delicious.

Because there are many kinds of sponge cakes to choose from, I don't think that we have to stick to only one recipe ^^. Simple Genoise without any butter, soft sponge cake, butter rich sponge or even chiffon can be used for making Japanese Strawberry shortcake. And if you ask me there are no right or wrong about it. The most important thing for me is "using the one that you like!". 
For this time I didn't use soft sponge cake, well, changing the texture of the cake is fun for me too, haha, and my sister love the rich sponge than the classic Genoise. I made it very small ^^, used 10x10 cm square mold, and can serve only 2 people, haha. But it's not hard to scale up the recipe, the Chantilly cream is only whipping cream and icing sugar, and you need 10% of icing sugar per whipping cream weight (ex: using 10g icing sugar for 100g of whipping cream).
