Happy Birthday

20. October 2012 by Ludger

As a kid Monique was confronted with a huge injustice: Her sisters always got a strawberry cake for their birthdays, while her birthday was out of strawberry season.
How do you cope with such an experience?   –  You start to dislike strawberries.

Now we are living in the Southern hemisphere, so at Monique’s birthday there is strawberry season. Hence a chance to overcome this childhood drama. So I did prepare a strawberry cake. A lazy one, since interesting enough Checkers offers these days German flan case. To overcome the learned strawberry dislike I did combine them with peaches halves. Still there was a challenge: I couldn’t find glaze anywhere. I used Strawberry jelly instead, but this did remain very liquid even after a good hour in the fridge. I put it in the freezer – just for a couple of minutes – and forgot. When I looked after it, it was already almost stiff. You see the result.

Well close your eyes, since taste was not too bad, actually pretty good. But shame, I didn’t buy whip cream.
