Vanilla Fruit Dessert Cups

Dessert cups with fruit are popular summer dessert. Vanilla Fruit Dessert Cups are made of light egg white sponge, vanilla cream, sweet cream, and various fresh fruits: bananas, kiwi, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries … I like dessert cups because the portions are already decided, and I can’t take just another half. Besides, they look so pretty, and serving is much easier since you don’t have to cut the cake – bonus points for everyone who always struggle with picking the right knife and cutting the fruit cake with fruit falling out of the cake. I prepared the dessert cups in 200 […]
