This was outstanding!! Since we starting our summer season here in South Africa there is an abundance of strawberries. This dessrt is quick easy and delicious! Makes you look like a pro. It is also light, luscious and dreamy. It is not overly sweet at all and the taste of fresh strawberry really comes through.I kept a few strawberries whole and dipped them in chocolate and put them on top of the piped whipped cream it really looked nice.1Reply
