Made this today. Thought I'd share the how to...
Things You’ll Need:
- 1 pound cake (pre-made or freshly baked)/ swiss rolls
- 2 cups chilled heavy whipping cream
- 3 cups custard
- 1 1/2 cups chopped strawberry / 1 large can fruit cocktail
- 1/2 cup strawberry preserves/ flavoured jelly
- Large glass bowl
Step1Prepare the bowl. Line the bowl with slices of pound cake.
Step2Brush strawberry preserves onto the cake and set aside. If using jelly, jelly mix must be prepared beforehand. Melt sugar with some water and moisten cake with the sugar water. You can also substitute the sugar water with syrup from the can of fruit cocktail. After the jelly you have prepared hardens scoop it in thin layers onto the cake.
Step3Spoon one layer of strawberries or fruit cocktail (make sure it is evenly spread out), and then 1/3 of cold custard on top of it.
Step4Add more cake layers and repeat step 2.
Step5Repeat step 3.
Step6Create as many layers as you wish.
Step7Top final layer with 1/3 of cold custard, chopped strawberries or fruit followed by whipped cream.
Step8Leave to set in refrigerator. Serve cold.
