Pictures speak a thousand words. The method for making Strawberry Shortcake is similar to the Tiramisu and as usual I prefer not to use raw eggs in my no-bake baking. The cake's not very pretty as I am very lousy in slicing fruits and it was a mistake using a round mold when the boudoirs were rectangular in shape. But otherwise it turned out just great. The cream was nice and stiff.
Boudoirs (you could also replace them with 2 layers of sponge cake)
Fresh Strawberries (either sliced thinly or just into halves - depending on how you want the cake decorated)
Cream for whipping (has to be whipped stiff)
Mascapone (1 tub)
2 Tbsps Sugar
2 drops each of Vanilla and Almond Essence
Grand Marnier, Rhum or Cognac (optional)
Cocoa Powder (optional)
PS : No need to wet the boudoirs beforehand as the fruit plus cream usually would soak them as the cake sets. Refrigerate for a day before serving.
