Whipped Cream Frosting on Asian Cakes?

day963 | Feb 7, 202006:09 PM     3

Hi all! Got a question for the bakers. I am a big fan of sweets and I tend to lean on the eastern-style/Asian style cakes that have a lighter cake and a whipped cream frosting. I have made an Asian/Chinese sponge cake before and a one time tried to make the whole Asian fruit cake but the whipped cream frosting seems to soak the sponge when it sits in the fridge resulting in an overly moist and dense texture from the usual light sponge cake.

The cake recipe is from that website attached and the frosting consisted of only heavy cream and sugar. I have heard of stabilizing it with gelatin but have never tried it. Does anybody have any experience and tips for making this style of cake and frosting?
