Fruit Dome Cake


  • Fruit:

  • 1 kiwi, sliced

  • 1 banana, sliced

  • Strawberries, sliced

  • Blueberries

  • Cream:

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 5 ounces strained yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • To assemble:

  • 2 sponge cakes, one sliced and one whole

  • Whole strawberries

  • Glaze:

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon gelatin


  1. Using a cookie cutter, cut the banana and kiwi slices into flower shapes.

  2. Line a large glass bowl with plastic wrap. Lay out the fruit slices in the bowl, alternating bananas, kiwis, blueberries and strawberries.

  3. In a separate bowl, add the heavy cream, yogurt and sugar and mix until combined. Dollop a large spoonful into the fruit-filled bowl and spread with a spatula to cover the fruit. Add a layer of sliced sponge cake, then another layer of cream. Top with a handful of whole strawberries, then cover with another layer of cream. Add the whole sponge cake on top.

  4. Place in refrigerator until firm, about 1 hour.

  5. Make the glaze: In a pot, add the water, sugar and gelatin. Heat until dissolved, then let cool.

  6. Turn out cake onto a plate. Brush with glaze, then slice and serve.
