  5. Spread mixture evening into your prepared cake tin/s.
  6. Bake for 40-50 mins (for one cake) or 20 mins (two spring form tins) until the sponge is lightly golden and shrinks from sides of the tin.
  7. Leave sponge in tin/s for about 10 mins before turning onto wire rack to cool.
Making the Custard
  1. Combine custard powder, sugar and milk in a saucepan. Stir continuously with a whisk over a medium heat until mixture boils and thickens. Stir in essence and ½ cup cream. Remove from heat and cool.
Assembling the cake
  1. Place one layer onto cake serving platter, pour over the custard and spread not quite to the edges.
  2. Slice enough strawberries to make a layer over the custard.
  3. Place top layer cake on top and ice entire cake with whipped cream.
  4. Place as many as desired strawberries in the centre, pipe cream around the edges and decorate with grated chocolate, buds or however you wish.
  1. For an extra kick and adults only, brush over both of the cake layers with ⅔ cup of Marsala then assemble cake as above.
