Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Trace 3 identical circles approximately 8 inches in diameter (feel free to use a plate as a guide) onto baking parchment-lined baking sheets.
  3. To make the cake layers, whish the eggs and sugar until shite and fluffy. Sift the flour and vanilla sugar into the egg mixture and fold, very carefully, until completely incorporated. Add the melted butter and stir carefully.
  4. Using a spatula, divide the batter between the 3 circles and ensure that the batter fills the circles all the way around. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and done, approximately 5-6 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely on cooling racks.
  5. Whisk the whipped cream ingredients until stiff peaks form. Fold one-third of the whipped cream together with the crème pâtissière, until incorporated (the remaining whipped cream can be used to decorate the final cake).
  6. To assemble, place the first layer cake on the serving plate. Spread a layer of raspberry jam, followed by a generous layer of the crème pâtissière mixture, finishing with a handful of strawberries spread out evenly. Repeat this process for the remaining layers.
  7. Using a palette knife, spread a layer of whipped cream on top of the cake. Finish with a generous amount of sliced strawberries and a dusting of confectioners’ sugar.
