How about an official Canadian cake?

Dear Diary:

A few months back I blogged about Canada getting an official tartan ["Canada's Official Tartan - April 7, 2011].  Well, now someone has proposed we have a national cake - strawberry shortcake!  This would not be the typical biscuit variety.  It would be a white cake, topped with fresh strawberries and iced with whipped cream. 
Looking through the window of my greenhouse, you can see me picking the strawberries off a plant in a container but in Canada, strawberries grow wild in almost every province, making them a perfect choice for an official cake.  When you put them on top of a white cake, with whipped cream, you have Canada's colours in full display.  Using it for Canada's birthday cake, you could outline the Canadian flag in strawberries.  How supremely yummy would that be?

I'm for this cake...well, actually I'm for any cake.  I going to take this plate of strawberries and try making the cake right now.

Good Night for now.
