A nice and neat strawberry shortcake--impossible? [moved from General Chowhounding Topics]

Is there such a thing as a strawberry shortcake that has a nice and neat look? I know that taste is more important than looks, but every recipe picture and photo I've seen of strawberry shortcake makes it look like a heaping gloppy mess, strawberries thrown helter skelter, mounds of cream oozing out of misshapen cake. Would like to find a photo of a crisp and tidy version--you know, the kind with nice sharp wedges you see in European dessert shops. Has anyone seen one? I'd be much more inspired to make one if I saw a beautiful picture of one, so that I could make it look that way!
