Christmas is coming!!! Finally, 2023 is going to end in less than a month. It’s probably fair to say that this year has been a tough year for most of us. It’s just the year of ambient anxiety with some changes in fundamental routines that we’ve. But let’s end the year well with the sweetness.


For me, a Japanese Strawberry Shortcake is the perfect choice to celebrate the occasion. It is nice to have a light dessert after Christmas dinners. The cake looks simple, but the flavor combination is heavenly. The sponge cake layers are very light and moist, the cream is not that sweet, and the tangy strawberries balance well with the rest of the cake.


Strawberry Shortcake is probably one of the most popular cakes in Japan. Apparently, it is also commonly sold as a “Christmas cake” and often the cake of choice for birthdays and the Christmas holiday.


In Japan, Strawberry Shortcake refers to layered sponge cake filled with whipped cream frosting and fresh strawberries, unlike the western style strawberry shortcake which is typically made with a sweet biscuit-like cake/scone. As a result, Japanese Strawberry Shortcake is much softer and lighter in texture in comparison to the western version.
