Remarks

You can lighten the custard a little by gently folding into it ¼ of the whipped cream.

If you want to prepare in advance, make confectioner's custard the day before, but cut strawberries and whip cream at the last minute.

Tip for better keeping: the whipped cream layer should completely cover stramberries to protect from air and prevent oxydation.
