Eggless Charlotte Royale
A house warming party was a great excuse to stay up till three in the morning, figuring out how to make an eggless Charlotte Royale! For those of you who don't know, a Charlotte Royale contains two very egg-friendly elements - swiss rolls and custard!
With a few tips from the internet and some help from ready made custard I managed to pull together a cake that did finally put up a good show and leave everyone happy. Though there is lots of room for improvement but really chuffed for now that the eggless sponge cake did roll into spirals and that the eggless custard did set into a jelly like blob. To be on the safe side I did put it all into the freezer which turned it into ice cream - that did not go as per plan!
As for the whipped cream and strawberries that were left out from the garnishing, there is always a next time! This debut eggless Charlotte Royale did well satisfying all tastebeuds! It can only get better from here...
