We’ve reached out to the baker of this too-pretty-to-be-eaten cake to find out the inspiration behind this masterpiece. According to Chiew See, “The weather has been really hot so the family has been craving light and cold cakes, hence my combination of jelly and mousse. This allows me to also incorporate a variety of fruits.”

Comprising of 3 parts, the cake has a crunchy Oreo base that’s a nice contrast to the light and fluffy mousse. With fresh strawberries, the cake will have a fruity taste. Also, as the top is a layer of jelly, it’s a favourite among children.

“This cake also does not require me to switch on the oven, which is a boon for me during this period, when cooking seems a like a never-ending exercise. The beautiful colour of the strawberries makes it great for Mother’s Day!”, said Chiew See.
