I love how you put the strawberries on top! It looks like an infinite strawberry spiral! And it looks very professional.

Thanks.  The cake was a great recipe I found online.  I had a request for it so here is the link.  I changed it a little filling it with fresh cream (chantilly cream the addition of a little icing sugar) and strawberries.  You can see my pic on this site also of the cake.  The strawberries on top look great and are super easy.  Just thin cross sections of the strawberry cut a slice down the middle and twist open.  Just continue around and it looks like a strawberry spiral.

 Shocked Wow, that cake is beautiful!!! Your grandfather is lucky to have you as a granddaughter, I'm sure he (and everyone else!) loved the cake. It looks a little too yummy, I need to keep telling myself it's a photo and not a real cake!

By the way, those strawberries are absolutely gorgeous. Truly professional and fun-looking!  Smiley

For some reason I read the title as "Vanilla Mongolia Cake" and was especially intrigued. The cake looks delicious and I'm sure your grandpa appreciated it!

between your post and the reviews on the other site, i'm convinced this is the cake i will be making next week for my boyfriend's birthday. i like the idea of your berries and cream filling, i was planning on doing that  with his cake.

for the frosting, did you use their butter cream? i'm not a fan of butter cream, and will probably use a similar whipping cream based frosting.

one more thing, the reviews we either really good, or really bad. any tips, since yours came out so nice?

The frosting on the outside was the same as in the filling.  Chantilly cream.  I whipped fresh cream and added a little icing sugar for sweetness.  That is all that is on the outside of the cake.

I followed the recipe and mine turned out fine.  I guess you could just practice the cake part if you were worried.

mum2five:    Here's my version - totally inspired by your lovely cakes!

Today's my birthday, so I bought some new bitsy cake pans and a cake decorating kit yesterday with the b'day cash from my MIL. I've vowed that I will make myself try something new at least once a week! I may have finally found my "thing". 

It turned out better than I anticipated, although it's totally not perfect and can't really hold a candle to your cake, mum2five! My strawberries weren't the same size, hence the lopsided dollop on top. And, it is bitsy - only about 4.5 inches tall. It's sitting on a small salad plate.

We enjoyed eating it and I enjoyed making it! Be gentle, remember - this is my first time!

When I first saw the picture of the filling I thought it was Eton Mess (strawberries, crushed meringue and whipped cream). It's given me an idea- Eton mess as cake filling.... yum...

Your cake looks beautiful and I'd be sorely tempted by the filling on its own! Hope your grandad liked it.

I made this cake for my friends babyshower last night. It was super yummy! Mine wasn't as pretty cause I realized my knifes suck at cutting strawberry's into thin pieces so I just decorated the sides with the strawberries and put the "super mommy to be" figure on top. Got several complements thanks for the recipe.
