For all who do not like to work with gelatin leaves, here comes good news. Some will know gelatin powder.
I haven’t heard of it until recently.
Great, simple and fast.
For this strawberry cake I have tried it for the first time. A great alternative to gelatin leaves.

Ingredients for the base

1 tbsp vanilla sugar

Spread the jam on the base.
Cut the strawberries and purée them together with the sugar in a blender
