For Cake:

  2. Combine the condensed milk, melted butter, vanilla essence and 5 tablespoons of water in a bowl and beat well using a whisk.
  3. Add the sieve flour mixture and mix well.

  7. Invert the tin over a rack and tap sharply to un-mould the cake.
  8. Keep aside to cool.
  9. Repeat steps 5-8 for the other half.

For Whipped Cream:

  1. Pour heavy cream into a large metal bowl and beat with an electric mixer on low for 5 mins.
  2. Gradually increase the speed to medium, beating for 5-7 mins or till soft peaks form.
  3. Add sugar and vanilla and beat till firm peaks form.
  4. Do not over beat, else the cream will appear clumpy and too thick.

Finish

  1. Dissolve sugar into water.
  2. Take the first half of the cake and wet it with sugar syrup. Repeat for the second half as well.
  3. On the bottom layer, add a layer of whipped cream and top it with cherries.
  4. Put the second layer on top and cover the entire cake with cream.
  5. Garnish with cherries and chocolate shavings.

TIP: Freeze the container that you will be using for whipping the cream, this helps in whipping the cream quickly!
