This Crema De Fruta recipe is just a layering of sponge cake followed by custard (creme patisserie), then fruits and then topped by gelatin.¬†For the fruits, we use canned peaches and pineapples and some glace cherries. If you want to use fruit cocktails it’s fine as well just make sure to drain it well. The gelatin can be made plain by replacing the fruit juice with water.
