Strawberry Short Cake
Two layers of special light sponges sandwiched with freshly whipped cream and fresh strawberries. Comes with fresh strawberry toppings.
Takashimaya Food Hall or Plaza Singapura
The cheapest alternative among the 4 without compromising the expectation of strawberry shortcake. The lightness of the whipped cream and the softness of the chiffon is comparable or in fact slightly better than BakerZin (Note that this difference is almost negligible and can only been differentiated if these two cakes are eaten side by side.

The most generous serving of strawberries among the 4. The side of the cake is coated with a layer of almond slices which provides a déjà vu after-taste. The cream has slightly higher milk content than the others and a sweeter after-taste. As for the vanilla sponge, it has a soft but denser texture than the others.

Three layers of light vanilla sponge with whipped cream and strawberries presented in this cake. Also, served with white chocolate curls, this cake can be considered one of the best strawberry shortcake we have eaten so far. The taste is light and refreshing with the nicest presentation in terms of whole round cake.
