This is my very first refashion. I took and old pair of denim jeans and just cut the bottom. I've put a zip at the top :) Decorate as you wish! It is suitable to casual outfits! I hope you like that bag!
1 purchased cake base, such as "Bavarian" Sponge Cake
2 T. liqueur, your choice, or sugar syrup
1 package of 4 serving, vanilla pudding mix or 2 c. prepared vanilla pudding
1 3/4 c. milk for vanilla pudding mix
2 c. fresh fruit, such as strawberries, kiwi, or berries
1 c. apple juice
1 package gelatin (1/4 oz.)
Sugar to taste
Whipped cream for serving
Sprinkle or brush cake base lightly with fruit schnapps, liqueur or sugar syrup to moisten but not douse.
Prepare pudding according to directions for pie filling. Look at the following recipes if you would like to make vanilla pudding from scratch or if you would like to make pastry cream.
If it is cooked, then cool until thickened. If it is instant, let it
set up a few minutes. Spoon into purchased sponge cake base and chill
(Note, the German sponge cakes have a lip to hold in the pudding and
fruit. They are baked in a special mold) .
Wash and prepare fresh fruit. Cut strawberries in half, peel and
slice kiwi, etc. Arrange fruit decoratively on top of pudding. You can
also overlap sliced fruit, if you wish. Place cake back in the
refrigerator while you make the glaze.
To make the glaze shown here, sprinkle the package of gelatin over
cold apple juice and let it swell for 5 minutes. Add 3/4 cup hot apple
juice (plus 1 or 2 tablespoons sugar, as desired), stirring constantly
until gelatin is dissolved. You may need to heat this mixture slightly
but do not bring it to a boil or the gelatin loses the ability to gel.
Place this mixture in the refrigerator until it starts to thicken.
Pour, spoon or brush the glaze over the cake. refrigerate the cake
for at least 1 hour and make sure the glaze has set up before serving.
