Being quiet busy in my kitchen preparing for my own upcoming event on my blog in December, I decided to share my very own birthday cake from May this year for this tea table. This cake contain alcohol, so not a good choice for serving to children.

  1. Start by mixing the cream cake vanilla powder with the milk - stir very well - place in the refrigerator for minimum 30 minute.
  2. Meanwhile clean the fresh fruit.
  3. Brush the sponge cake layer with blackcurrant rum 
  4. Whip the first part of the dairy whipping cream into foam, but a light foam.
  5. Mix the whipped cream together with the cream cake, and stir into a homogeneous mass.
  6. Place ½ of this cake cream on a bottom layer of sponge cake.
  7. Place ½ of the fresh fruit on top of this cream cake layer.
  8. Top with another layer of sponge cake.
