Instant Jelly Strawberry Cake – Fathers Day Special

14 May

Yesterday, May 13th 2010, was remembered as Ascension Day and also celebrated as Father’s Day in Germany. Different countries celebrate Father’s day on different dates. Truely, Father is the first role model to any child. Children try to copy the behaviours and habits from both the parents. My daughter enjoys playing Wii games and other play activities along with her father. As I knew it very late from my daughter yesterday about this, I didn’t have time to prepare my own version.My daughter helped me in making this instant cake, and she surprised  her father with this cake and a poem.


  1. Biscuit base – 1
  2. Strawberries fresh – 200 gms
  3. Instant gelatin mix for strawberry- 1 pkt (jelly , sugar, color, flavor)


1. Arrange the fresh strawberries on the biscuit base.

2. Add water and mix up the instant gelatin mix, once it is boiling remove it from heat.

3. Slowly pour it on the strawberries to fill any gaps.

Tip: Select fresh strawberris and sweet ones for this cake.

    Poem by Riya

    Daddy I love You, With all that you do,
    I kiss you and hug you ,
    You feed me and need me to teach You to play,
    so smile on this fathers day.

    (She learnt it from her teacher for Mothers day in school. She used the same for dad too by replacing mother with father.)
