Fresh Cream Strawberry Tarts!

It was my sister’s birthday recently and I thought I should bake a cake while she was at work. It took me about 2 hours to make in total. I made everything from scratch and the joy you get out of completion of the cake is awesome, not to mention the taste. Please everyone, have a go at making these delicious cakes!


Short crust pastry

Double Cream


Strawberry flavoured jelly crystals (vegetarian of course)


Preparation Directions

  1. Heat Oven
  2. Roll out pastry and cut circles, roughly 4-inches. Place the pastry circles into the baking tray/muffin cups. Pinch 5 equally spaced pleats around side of each cup. Prick each pastry generously with fork.
  3. Bake pastry 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes. Carefully remove from muffin cups. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, make custard until thick and lumpy and place in Refrigerator until cool.
  5. Also whip some cream, using Double cream and store in the Refrigerator.
  6. And make the Strawberry flavoured jelly, but this should not be solid, and should remain runny, so that you can pour it on top of the strawberries.
  7. Once everything has cooled, take the muffin cups/baking tray and fill with the cool custard, so that it fills the cup to the top.
  8. Then add the strawberries!
  9. Then the half liquid jelly, just to glaze the strawberries. Don’t worry if it spills everywhere, it adds to the effect!
  10. Then Garnish each with whipped cream topping.
  11. Ahhh, we haven’t finished yet though….place everything in the Refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  12. Serve and Enjoy! Yummmmm!
