Strawberry Charlotte by StrangeWonderland Strawberry Charlotte by StrangeWonderland
Strawberry Charlotte. It's the second time I've made one, but the first time I made the ladyfingers from scratch. I didn't know ladyfingers had so much sugar in them! :O

There's strawberry mousse inside and a layer of sponge cake at the bottom.

I got the cake base and ladyfinger recipes from different places, but the Charlotte mousse and assembly I followed comes from the blogger, Kitchen Wench. :)

Thanks! It's funny, at first taste I thought I didn't add enough sugar, but after a few hours it became perfect. So maybe the flavors kinda needed time to settle. :)

I certainly hope you brought enough for everyone? ;) Did it take long to make?

This looks exquisitely yummy. I've never tried this particular dessert before, but with summer coming, I'll have to try some. Congrats on your DD, and on your successful creation.

:) It's definitely possible to make it all in one day, but I divided the work. I made the ladyfingers one day, then the next day I made the sponge cake and then the last day, I made the mousse and assembled everything. It's the kind of desserts I want to make, hopefully, when I become a pastry chef.

Thank you so much for your comments! And yes, I can't wait until strawberries become cheap and plentiful in the season!

Me described as an artisan? *blush*

:) Thanks! That's very true! It started as a hobby... but it actually kind of led me into all kinds of other work like learning photography because it's a lot harder than I thought to make food look good.

Art is not defined by the skill of a person but of their passion for what they do. :love:

Don't worry that you have to prove anything. As long as you love to do the things you do there will be art. :heart: :aww:

Did you eat it? It seems like one of those things where it looks so super-amazingly-tasty that you're dying if you can't eat it, but you can't bear to eat it because it looks so super-amazingly-tasty.
