Anticipating Summer with a Strawberry Shortcake "cheater" Charlotte


Hello sweet friends !

It's been a while since I last posted, as I've been kind of busy with mother and all the household chores.

I hope all of you and your families are keeping safe, happy and healthy.

My daughter Alexandra, Sergio and her little daughters are coming for lunch a couple of days a week too, from just across the street. 

They are the ones that live in Madrid, but since the COVID-19 quarantine started they have stayed in our town Cuenca-Ecuador, as they were visiting the family since last February.

I baked this gorgeous "Charlotte 'Cheater' cake."  They call it 'cheater' because of the 'Nordic Ware' pan that comes perfectly shaped to make a 'fabulous looking Charlotte Cake,' with hardly any effort, lol...

Never the less, it is delicious !

With that said.


Anticipating a happy looking Summer table for our tea time afternoon with daughter Alexandra, Sergio and her two little girls.

I used for the cake these cute and very Summery lemon plates.








'The "Cheater" Charlotte Cake' came out so pretty and delish !

I explained at the beginning of this post that the 'cheater' part comes because it's made on a 'Nordic Ware' pan that has the shape of a perfect Charlotte cake, without the effort that almost needs a professional, lol..

Ain't it peity ?!

  3. Dearest Fabby,
    Your Charlotte cake looks magazine worthy and what a clever Nordic pan idea.
    Don't know what was more joyful, the presence of your daughter Alexandra and family living nearby or setting this table.
    One can tell that your spirits were quite high... you showed that in the way you put it together.
    Yes, that is making the most out of a dark period in our life...
    Glad they all are safe as Spain has quite a lot of cases, as did Italy.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  4. Hola Fabby, ¡qué suerte tener a tu hija y su familia contigo tantos días y tan solo cruzando la calle, disfrutalos, se les quiere tanto... En cuanto a tu mesa preciosa como siempre, tu vajilla de limones muy alegre los individuales ya nos acercan al verano y tu charlota, preciosa, tengo algunos moldes de Nordic Ware pero no ese, mmm tendré que buscarlo.
    Un fuerte abrazo y cuidense
