Strawberry and Cream Layer Cake

Strawberries have been on my mind and plate lately, and I'm not complaining! They're one of my favorite fruits and so versatile in jams, desserts, drinks and appetizers alike! Of course, one of the classic ways to serve strawberries is with a big bowl of cream! So to crown our strawberry season in style, I decided to bake up a storm with this easy but oh-so pretty strawberry and cream layer cake !

Mother's day is coming up, and if you need a simple and delicious dessert to impress and celebrate mom, then this white chocolate and strawberry tart recipe is it! With a few handy pantry staples and a punnet of fresh strawberries you can whip up this tart in no time at all, without the need to turn on your oven, which is always a bonus in my book! πŸ‘ I also made a delicious fresh strawberry sauce to serve with this tart for extra indulgence, but if you don't like things too sweet, then simply serve with extra fresh sliced strawberries for a tangy contrast!
