Fraisier Cake

Cake, Fruit, Vegetarian

I loved making this, it required a few hours but it’s beauty in taste and look, makes the effort worth it!

Broken down it compromises of Kirsh cream mouseline and strawberries sandwiched between to thin sponge cake layers with a marzipan top. That makes it sound easy….it was not 😊

I made this for our local Rose Queen Festival, hence the roses on the top!

Happy Wednesday foodie friends!!

If you need a little boost to get over this midweek hump, why not try this little tiddler of a dessert?

OK, it’s ridiculously simple and you would be forgiven for thinking…..boring, but give it a chance and I promise it will deliver!

All you need to do is:

  1. Place a couple of ladies fingers (sponge fingers) in the bottom of a glass.
  2. Layer on some pineapple pieces (tinned are fine) and even pour in a bit of the juice.
  3. Later with custard (homemade, tinned, low fat, full fat…its up to you!)
  4. Refrigerate until you ready to consume!


It offers you a sweet little pudding with different textures and tastes which combined, compliment each other really well. It’s also quite light and makes for s nice little summer treat.
