  5. Cool the cake By cling wrapping and keeping in fridge overnight or for 2-3 hours. This will give lesser crumbs while cutting cake in layers.
  6. Cut 3 layers of cake and Keep it back in fridge till our jam, cream and frosting is getting ready. Use butter paper in between layers, so they doesn't stick back to each other
  7. For the jam; in a pan add cherries sugar lemon juice and some water and let them cook for 10 minutes. Cool and grind coarsely.
  8. For pastry cream; in a pan heat 1 cup Milk, in other 1/4 cup of milk mix corn starch or custard powder.

  18. Genelty lift the fondant and spread it over the cake. Slightly press the fondant on the cake and give shape. Do not press it hard.
  19. With a sharp clean knife and make slits on the top of cake.
  20. Roll the slits outwards and remove the butter paper with the help of a toothpick.
  21. Decorate the top with fruits of your choice. I arranged with cherries as we are using cherry jam inside the cake.
  22. I thinly sliced an apple and made a small rose and placed on top.
  23. Enjoy with friends and family. This recipe easily serves a crowd of 10 people.
