strawberries lost in philadelphia


english
Strawberries lost in vanilla cream cheese...
This cake must be from heaven.
This cake makes me wanna dig into the fluffy vanilla cream. Makes me wanna 
munch trough the fruity - sweet strawberries and crunch away the tender - crispy cake crust.
A strawberry dream on a vanilla cloud, that´s the way this cake looks and  taste´s like;-)

I made this cake for the Philadelphia cake contest and I had to share it with you guys, because it´s 
a perfect summer cake.

Versunkene Erdbeeren in Vanille - Käsecreme...
Bei dieser Torte möchte ich mit einem gigantischen Löffel in die fluffige Vanillecreme
eintauchen, mich durch die fruchtig - süßen Erdbeeren mampfen,
und dann den zart - knusprigen Kuchenboden weg knabbern.
Ein Erdbeertraum auf einer Vanillewolke, genauso sieht sie aus und genauso schmeckt sie auch;-)

Ich habe diese Torte für den Philadelphia TortenStars Wettbewerb gebacken und ich musste sie mit 
Euch teilen.
Eine perfekte Sommer Torte.

a boil.
Add chocolate, sugar and egg yolks and stir constantly, until everything is
well combined.
Wrap mixture with plastic foil and let cool down.

Wash strawberries and cut into half.
Allow the gelatine leaves to swell in water for ca. 5 minutes and then gently squeeze out the excess water.
(alternatively prepare the gelatin powder following the package instructions)

Beat whipping cream stiff.
Gently fold heavy cream and cream cheese into the pudding. 
Dissolve gelatin under low heat.
Transfer 3 tablespoons pudding to the gelatin, stir well, add gelatin mixture to  the remaining pudding cream.
