The best part? It wasn't even that good. Mine is SOOO much better.
Today I made a Charlotte Royale. It starts as a roll cake that's lined with jam (in this case, apricot) and sliced
Then you line a bowl with the slices of cake
It gets filled with bavarian cream (with gelatin)
Then the cream gets covered with more cake (usually plain cake)
Once it sets, it gets turned out and glazed to keep the cake fresh
The finished product can be sliced and will hold its shape because of the gelatin
I have to say, I understand the reasoning for the gelatin, you want it to be able to stand up on its own...but it makes have a weird texture and the bavarian cream had almost no flavor. Sad days!
By the way, the cheesecake was very good. The only thing is, it needed way more ginger and less orange...next time.
