Il Pleut sur la Seine's Ichigo Shortcake does the nigh-impossible: it stands out from the crowd. Topped with sliced strawberries in a strawberry sauce, the sponge below is layered with strawberry syrup for the ultimate red berry bomb. On top of that, there's strawberry meringue mixed in with the fresh cream, marrying sweetness with a slight tartness. Of course, such a creation is highly dependant on the quality of the strawberries, meaning that this baby can only be had between December and May.
