I found this dessert online while trolling recipe websites. I had never heard of it and was intrigued. It was simple to make, and as you see, presents beautifully. But most importantly, it tastes delicious and was a big hit.

It is also very versatile. I have seen it served as a parfait in individual cocktail glasses sundae glasses and such. I also saw it where the cream was in a bowl placed alongside a platter of assorted sliced fruit. That way people could select their favorites. I used a crystal truffle bowl and mixed in blueberries and raspberries I had in the house. It is delcious
