Two weeks ago, Jon's parents and sister came to visit and to see the kid's ballet recital. We had a great weekend.
I layered it with cut strawberries (that had been tossed with a little sugar and let sit for a while) and whipped cream that I whipped with some softened gelatin. If I had used regular whipped cream, within an hour or so, it would have turned into a soft mess. The gelatin helped it hold it's shape and support such a tall cake (I also used a few bamboo skewers). Next time I won't use quite so much gelatin. The whipped cream got a bit too firm. Here's the recipe I'll use next time.
