Eton Mess Cake All Naked
Fruit makes all things more delicious.
I've grown very fond of the
I made it again, one recipe in 2-9inch pans, split in half for 4 layers.
I made meringues, and a whipped cream+cream cheese frosting. The cream cheese keeps the whipped cream stable on a hot summer day, when you know the cake is going to be sitting on the counter for a time before being sliced. The strawberries inspired the whole thing since my daughter's little garden was brimming with them.
The real dessert, Eton Mess, is actually a parfait style dessert of broken meringues, whipped cream and berries that one eats with a spoon. I'm sure that would be totally delicious too.
Essentially, layer the frosting, fruit and broken up bit of meringues, ending with the prettiest on top.
