“This is me pretending to get ahead.

“Get some jam Swiss rolls, and all you have to do is cut them to the right size and make them almost into the shape of a cake.”

Once this is done, we put 300ml of double cream in a bowl with 50g of icing sugar and a dash of vanilla essence, and we beat “until we obtain beautiful peaks of thick cream”.

“All you’re going to do then is cover it like you would any other cake,” he continued.

“Get a palette knife and try to make it look as beautiful as possible.

“It doesn’t have to be perfect.”

Shelina then puts her cake in the fridge to set, before topping it with strawberries and sprinkles.

“This was for a party my daughter had and I felt really bad that I didn’t make a cake,” she explained.

“So I made this, and I was actually really proud of myself because, look, it looks really beautiful when you cut it, it’s such a cool hack!”

She added in the caption of her video: “Sometimes you just have to FAKE IT!

“I’ve noticed that I put a lot of pressure on myself to make everything from scratch, but you don’t have to do it yourself all the time!

“This can also be made with chocolate swiss rolls (which I do often), but my daughter specifically asked for a ‘strawberry shortcake’ and I was exhausted, worked all week and told myself today is NOT baking day.” right from the start.

“I decided to fake it and I wanted to show you how!”

“What a great idea, it looks so good!” One person commented on the video.

“You should be proud of yourself, you are a genius.”

“Yes I love it saved it in my memory bank thank you,” wrote another.

“What a great idea,” praised a third.
