Fruit Dome Cake

Oh no no, this is NOT your average fruit cake.

Ingredients

  • 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

Steps

  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.
