    HeatherFeather's Note:

    I translated this from "Frau im Trend," a German cooking magazine. Cook time is actually all chilling time. This is a pretty creamy gelatin based torte chock full of fresh strawberries. It is bright pink and would be a nice treat for a special Valentine's Day dinner or would be a real showstopper for the Fourth of July.

    Directions:

    1. 1

      Remove the gelatin leaves from the water and squeeze out the extra moisture.
    5. 5
      Place gelatin in a saucpean and cook over low heat until melted, remove from heat.
    6. 6
      Add a small amount of the berry puree into the gelatin and whisk together (this is to temper it- do not skip), then pour the gelatin mixture into the rest of the puree and mix together; chill in fridge 30 minutes.
    7. 7
      Beat the cream until soft peaks form, and then gently fold into the partly gelled mixture until combined.

      Remove the outer ring from the springform pan and pour the puree over the top.
    12. 12
      Decoratively place the remaining berry slices on top of the torte, completely covering the surface.
    13. 13
      Toss nuts with powdered sugar- then press the nuts in a ring around the outer edge (or just sprinkle them on top if you prefer- or omit them).
    14. 14
      Garnish if desired with some fresh sprigs of mint or lemon balm.
