Stage 16/16 : 3 min.

At the last minute, gently remove the cake from the dessert ring. Your "fraisier" is ready to be served and enjoyed.


If you do not have a dessert ring, use a circle of strong card, lined with a piece of stretch plastic film, held in place with a paper clip.

For a quicker finish, you can simply sprinkle the top of the cake with icing sugar in place of the marzipan.

For Gaston Lenôtre, a strawberry cake should be made with butter cream rather than mousseline, and he called it a "Bagatelle".
