Then top with strawberries, pressing them a little way into the cream to hold them in place.

Keep in the fridge, but leave at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

Remarks

Verveine liqueur is made with lemon verbena. For a non-alcoholic version, you can flavour the confectioner's custard by leaving the fresh herb to infuse in the milk.
