Summer berry cheese cake pot

We've been enjoying a proper sunny summer this year in the UK for a change.
It's great to see blue sky and sun shining everyday. :)  Fantastic for a BBQ in the garden, but not for baking cakes in a small kitchen like I have.  The heat is just so unbearable.
Ah, but I've got a banana and chocolate cake in the freezer and I've found some frozen mixed berries.
Now, all I have to do is make a cheese cream filling and assemble these ingredients together in tumblers to create this cool summer desert.
They look quite impressive but are really easy to make.

  • some left over cakes (chocolate cakes, brownies go well)
  • some frozen mixed berries
  • a few drops of raspberry jam (lemon curd is also good)
  • 200g cream cheese
  • 100g creme fraiche 
  • 1 Tbsp icing suger 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or paste
  • grated chocolate for garnish 

  1. Mix cream cheese, creme fraiche, vanilla and icing sugar until smooth. 
  2. Cut the cake in pieces and place in the bottom of the tumblers and drop some jam on top.
  3. Drop the cream cheese filling and then add some berries. 
  4. Make layers of berries and cream cheese filling.
