How to Whip Perfect Cream

Method

Ambrosia

1. Whip the cream to form soft peaks. Fold through the yoghurt, marshmallows and 1 cup berries. Refrigerate until needed or overnight for even more flavour.

2. Puree the remaining berries with icing sugar. Strain through a sieve to remove the pips.

3. When ready to serve, spoon the ambrosia into your brandy snap baskets and decorate with extra berries.

Lemon Curd with Fresh Raspberries

Ingredients:

½ cup lemon curd

¾ cup sour cream

8 fresh raspberries

Mint leaves to garnish

Store-bought brandy baskets

1. In a small bowl, combine the lemon curd and sour cream.

2. When ready to serve, place the brandy snap baskets on a platter. Fill with a little curd mixture and top with raspberries and a mint leaf.

Tip: For something different try placing the fillings into the freezer for two hours and serving in glasses like a semifreddo, then crumble some brandy snap basket over the top.
