Cakie quickie.

1 Take a ready-made 25cm sponge flan case (you can get them for 82p at Asda) and use a 20cm metal cake ring to cut the edges of the flan ring away. Discard them. Now you have a circle of sponge. Use a long sharp knife to cut the sponge through the middle, to make two thin circles of sponge.

2 Place one circle back inside the cake ring and drizzle with Drambuie. Cut 8-12 strawberries in half and arrange them, cut-side out, around the edge of the cake ring. Pile more strawberries or mixed berries in the middle, so they don't go higher than the edge of the ring.

3 Whip 450ml double cream with the seeds from one vanilla pod. Pile the cream over the berries, then use a palette knife to press it down and create a flat top, level with the top of the ring. Place the second ring of sponge over the top.

4 Warm the outside of the cake ring with a hot cloth, so the cream doesn't stick to it, then lift off. Dust with icing sugar and mixed berries.
