Strawberry Marshmallow Cake

Tomorrow is Hayden's sch end-term party & he's required to bring a dish. So I tried out this cake recipe that's been on my to-dos for d longest time. However, as there is no timing stated at all in d original web, mine 1st attempt was horrible! D marshmallow filling was not hardened enough when I pour in d jello filling! Thus, most of d jello fillings flow into d marshmallow filling, leaving behind only a very thin layer of jello to cover d sliced strawberries. So thin that some of d strawberries r sticking out! So to 'save' it, I used up d bal ½pkt jello & this time, I spooned it onto d cake & mgd to cover all d strawberries. Therefore, if u look closely at d cut cakes, u can c that some has mixed color in d marshmallow fillings.

Base:

200g digestive biscuits
80g melted butter
Crushed biscuits & mix well w/butter. Press into a 8” tin. Refrigerate for later use.

Marshmallow filling:
150g Marshmallow
300ml UHT milk (full cream milk)
200ml Whipping cream
2 tsp Gelatine powder
Put all the ingredients into a pot & boil over small fire till gelatine is dissolved.

Jello topping:
½ pkt Jello
200ml Water
2 tsp Gelatine powder
Boil all ingredients until dissolved.

Assembling the cake:
Pour marshmallow filling into d prepared baking tin w/biscuit base. Put in freezer until slightly harden but not totally frozen. Take it out & arrange sliced fresh strawberries. Put it back to freezer to harden a little. When slightly harden take it out & spoon d cooled Jello on top. Put in fridge to chill. Cut into small pieces to serve.
