【1】How to make "Genoise"

1 Prepare a mold with a diameter of 18 cm and a height of 6 to 7 cm, cut parchment paper (cooking sheet) along the mold with scissors, and lay it on the mold.

2 Sift the cake flour about 3 times.
 When it becomes a lump, sift it while holding it with a spatula.

3 Put the butter in a heat-resistant dish and heat it in a 600W microwave oven for about 30 seconds to melt it.
 * If it is not melted, heat it for another 5 to 10 seconds and melt it.
 Start preheating the oven at 170℃.

4 Crack the egg into a bowl and whisk with a hand mixer.
 Warm the pot with hot water, add granulated sugar while applying it to the steam of a water bath at 60-70℃, and whisk at a higher speed (about 5-6 steps in 9 steps).
 * Raise the temperature of the egg liquid little by little with the image of warming with steam without touching hot water.
 When the egg liquid reaches 35 ℃, remove it from the water bath and continue whisking at high speed.
 * The best condition is that the dough hangs down and then falls off and does not sink immediately.

5 Add the cake flour in 3 portions and mix with a rubber spatula.
 * Mix well until the egg dough becomes glossy with the feeling of spreading the cke flour.
 * The point is to mix gently and quickly so as not to crush the bubbles and as not to get harden.

6 Add melted butter and rum extract and mix.
 * Stop mixing as soon as the butter is completely mixed.
 Pour the dough into the cake mold and tap it lightly on the table.
 * It’s best that the fabric falls like a ribbon♪

7 Place in an oven preheated to 170 ° C and bake for 35-40 minutes.
 * If you stick a skewer and it is raw, bake it for another 5 minutes.

8 After baking, take it from the oven, lightly drop the cake mold on the table, and give a shock to remove the steam.
 Turn it upside down on a net and let it cool for 1 hour at room temperature, then turn it upside down again and wrap it to prevent it from drying and let it rest in the fridge.

【2】How to make "Whipped cream"

1 Prepare a large bowl of ice water. Place another bowl and add whipped cream, powdered sugar and vanilla extract.

2 Whisk heavy cream with a hand mixer until it forms a soft peak.
 * It’s okay if you think it’s a little loose with a glossy and thick texture.

【3】How to decorate

1 Slice Genoise to a thickness of 1 cm, 1.5 cm, 1.5 cm from the bottom.
 * Slice while stacking 5 mm rulers, you can cut cleanly horizontally .
 Take the calyx of strawberries and 6 grains are sliced in half vertically.

2 Whip half the amount of cream until it forms a stiff peak.
 Place 1 cm Genoise on the turntable, and thinly place the creme shanti and spread it evenly.
 Layer 1.5 cm Genoise and spread the creme shanti thickly.
 Arrange 12 strawberries in a circle on the inside for 1 finger (1 to 2 cm) from the edge of Genoise.
 Arrange so that the tip faces inward.

3 Put the creme shanti in the center and apply in a generous amount so that the surface of the strawberry is faintly visible.

4 Place Genoise on the top and fill the side dents with creme shanti that forms a stiff peak.
 * First, apply a small amount of cream so that the dough scraps do not come out on the surface, and then gradually add cream from above to get a beautiful finish.

5 Cover the whole with cream that forms a stiff peak, then coat with cream that forms a soft peak.
 When the whole was napped evenly, squeeze the cream and decorate the strawberries checking the balance.
