4. To make the whipped cream: Combine egg whites and vanilla sugar in a bowl, then beat. Add salt, flour & baking powder and continue to beat until everything is well incorporated.

Whip on high until stiff peaks form (I’ve seen people do this in a stand mixer with the whisk attachment). Pour whipped cream on the sponge cake and enjoy!

5. For fresh raspberries: Wash them thoroughly in cold water, then transfer to a saucepan of boiling water for about 5 minutes or until soft (recommended time will depend on ripeness). Place hot raspberries in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until cold.
