Fun, Beautiful Dessert

What you need

One package of Chocolate wafers
Whipping cream
Sugar
Vanilla
Raspberries
Kahlua or other liqueur for flavouring (optional)

Whip up some fresh whipping cream, sweetened to your liking, add a dash of vanilla and if desired add something special, like kahlua or triple sec, etc....  Optional.  For my first attempt I used only vanilla extract.







Spread a layer of whipped cream on the chocolate wafers.















Slip in some berries on one of the layers.  Now you stack the layers on top of each other. Only one of the layers will have berries.













It doesn't matter where the layer of berries is, but the cake is a little less tippy if the berries are not in the bottom layers.




I made five layers of wafers and cream, put the berries in the middle layer and one plain layer on top. You can do more or less if you wish....








Now, use whipped cream to ice it like a layer cake.





Let them set up in the fridge for at least two hours, the cookies will soften and have a cake like texture. So pretty, so fun....


I grated some dark chocolate on them and dropped a few berries on the plate.
