Recipe: Strawberries and Cream cold desert

Apologies if you have already been here to see this post, I had a small glitch yesterday and didn't come up as planned. 
Now, this is the desert my mom made for my birthday back in May. I didn't want anything fancy or anything really cake-y really but she insisted that we had to make something for the occasion. This is BEYOND easy, in Greece they call it "the lazy girl desert". You only need a few ingredients and time.

1 punet of strawberries, remove their stems
500 gr whipped cream (which you can buy at a good bakery or make it yourself with this recipe)
1 packet of savoiardi biscuits/lady fingers
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp liquor of your choice
1 glass of water

If you are making your whipped cream yourself, prepare it and keep it cold. 
Prepare your sirup by boiling the water with the sugar and liquor over medium heat until the sugar has completely dissolved. Remove from heat and let it cool completely. 
I used a round cake tin but you can use any recipient. 
Once your sirup has cooled completely start soaking your lady fingers lightly and placing them at the bottom on your pan covering it all. Once all covered distribute evenly the cream. Here you can either stop as it is or make another layer of lady fingers and another batch of cream and then place the strawberries on top or just put more cream and the strawberries which is what we did here. 
Put in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours, I would recommend making it the night before. Eat cold.
