Christmas Strawberry Roll Cake

Sorry for still having Christmas posts, I'm trying to get them all up before the end of January at the latest, haha. 

While I was home for Christmas, my mom and I decided to make a Japanese strawberry roll cake.  It's a variation of a Japanese strawberry shortcake, which is super popular in Japan (and many Japanese bakeries/cafes in the US also).  It's not too difficult to make, but definitely time-consuming and I don't really know if I could pull this off just on my own, to be honest.  My mom has made it for years so she's a pro at it by now.  It's basically a yellow sponge cake with fresh strawberries and fresh whipped cream. 

We decided to make a roll cake version so that we could shape it like a Buche de Noel, since it was Christmas and all.  The cake was delicious- it did not take long for just two of us to work our way through this cake, haha!  Hope you enjoy the photos :o)
