How to Whip Perfect Cream

Method

  • AMBROSIA

  • 1. Whip the cream to form soft peaks. Fold through the yoghurt, marshmallows and 1 cup of chopped mixed berries. Refrigerate until needed or overnight.

  • 2. In a food processor, blend the remaining berries and icing sugar. Strain through a sieve to remove the pips.

  • 3. When ready to serve, softly fold the berry mixture in to the ambrosia mixture, then spoon into the brandy baskets. Garnish 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. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  • 2. To serve, fill each brandy basket with curd mixture and top with a raspberry and a small 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.
