Preparation

For the biscuit:

  • Bake in an oven pre-heated to 180° for 35-40 minutes. 
  • Remove from the tin. Remove the oven paper and leave to cool.

For the filling:

  • Soften the gelatin in cold water. 
  • Mix the fresh cream cheese, yoghurt, sugar, vanilla sugar and strawberry purée. 
  • Squeeze out the gelatin well and melt it in three dessertspoons of warm water. 
  • Mix two tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture with the gelatin.
  • Finally, stir the gelatin-mix and the finely chopped strawberries into the rest of the cream cheese mixture.
  • Leave in the fridge for a while to firm.
  • Whip the cream until thick and add to the mix.

To construct the cake:

  • Divide the base of the cake horizontally. 
  • Place one of the two sponge disks on a tray and secure with a cake ring. 
  • Spread the strawberry-cream cheese-cream on the cake base.
  • Cover with the second sponge disk. 

For the decoration:

  • Beat the cream with the packet of vanilla sugar. 
  • Remove the ring and cover the cake with the whipped cream. 
  • Decorate with little sugar hearts and fresh strawberries.
