sponge cake with elderflower cream and strawberries

Oh, how I love a freshly baked sponge cake!

Today is so glorious that I’m going to put on a pretty dress and bake a sponge cake filled with elderflower cream and fresh strawberries to take to my friends for afternoon tea.

I do think the sponge cake (or genoise) is under-rated. Just as its name suggests, it is a delightful foil to whatever (moist) filling your heart desires. And then you get to mop up your plate with the last sweet, feather-light bite on your fork.Finished with a light dusting of icing sugar and fresh flowers, it makes my heart sing with joy!
