    Jen T's Note:

    An elegant do ahead dessert or party cake to impress your friends. This makes it ideal for entertaining as it can be prepared the night before you need it. Do not serve this cake only a few hours after you have made it because it needs at least 12 hours (preferably 24hrs) for the cake to absorb moisture from the syrup and cream. It keeps well for 2-3 days although the nuts may discolour the cream a little. If this happens just pipe extra cream over the nuts an hour or so before serving and decorate with fruit. I got this at a cooking demonstration. I'm glad I went!! Note:- Cooking time is time for refrigeration.
