I love food, I love cooking, I love baking!!! There is just something about the smell of freshly baking cookies and cake that seems to call to me every time. It is almost an obsessive need to flow with that scent that lingers in the air and just have it all around you all the time. Baking was something I had grown up around and pretty much forgotten about since awhile. I have had my mum experiment with so many different cakes and dishes which made me want to try some for myself.
1.Line the base of a 20cm round springform cake tin with greaseproof
paper. Cut the Madeira cake into 1cm slices and use to line the base of the
tin. Fill in the gaps between the slices with small pieces of cake.
2.Break the meringues into pieces and put into a large bowl. Tip in all
the crème fraîche and fold together. Dollop large spoonfuls of the meringue
mixture and lemon curd into the tin. Don't stir. Spread level with a palette
knife, then tap the tin on the counter surface to make sure the mixture is packed
down. Freeze for at least 4 hours.
3.When ready to serve, remove the cake from the tin and put on a serving
plate. Decorate with red summer berries.
