The ‘Colorado Blvd’ Strawberry RaspberrySuch an original, beautiful and delicious cake that tastes Almonds, strawberries, raspberries and vanilla mascarpone cream… I made this for a party and everyone has been asking me for the recipe, so here it is !
The ‘Colorado Blvd’ Strawberry Raspberry

A dessert I discovered in Pasadena, California
The ‘Colorado Blvd’ Strawberry Raspberry

more precisely during a culinary training at the Cordon Bleu institute in Pasadena
The ‘Colorado Blvd’ Strawberry Raspberry

Next to the school, the Cordon Bleu had a nice deli that was managed by the students themselves
The ‘Colorado Blvd’ Strawberry Raspberry

And that’s in the Cordon Bleu deli that I tasted a piece of this wonderful dessert
The ‘Colorado Blvd’ Strawberry Raspberryand since the cake didn’t have any name, I called this the « colorado boulevard », the name of the street the Cordon Bleu (which is now closed), was located at

10 minutes

or until golden in color

Assembling

INSTRUCTIONS1. It is best to use a square frame, mine is 8 inches by 8 inches

2. Start by putting the Genoa Bread

3. Spread a thin layer of the strawberry jam

4. Spoon the mascarpone cream

5.  Freeze for about

20 minutes



6. Spoon the remaining strawberry jam

7.  Freeze again for about

20 minutes



8. Add the Strawberries and Raspberries

9. You may add sliced almonds from the crunchiness and the color contrast

10. For color purposes, I like to add small mint leaves

11. Remove the frame

12. You can then add the sablé cookies on the sides of the cake : This has actually a practical purpose : the cookies prevent the cream to fall off
