A few days ago, my oven door broke off. Yes, off. A tragedy. Was my oven unaware that it was approaching Valentine's Day and Veggie Mama being unable to bake cute treats for Valentine's Day equals severe trauma?
Trauma. Capital T.
Veggie Mama does not do store-bought.
Plan B must be devised. Enter purchased sponge cake. As much as I grimaced while selecting it from the shelf and taking it home to pretty up, I actually felt quite relieved that I didn't have to turn the oven on in the middle of summer and raise the temperature of my little hot-box house by ninety-five degrees.
Please don't tell my oven. I still love him/her.
The result was the fastest and probably easiest Valentine's Day dessert I've ever made. And it was divine! Whipped cream will do that.
All that needs to be done is to cut the sponge into heart shaped pieces, sandwich together with a good strawberry jam and sweetened whipped cream, sprinkle over icing sugar and pop a berry on top. Dessert for two, fuss-free.
