Lemon flavor GinTonic cake

Do not be scared throughout the text of this recipe. It is actually very easy, although it takes longer to explain it than to do it. The cake is divided into three parts: on the one hand the base to which a syrup is put so that it is more juicy, on the other, the whipped cream with lemon jelly and condensed milk is prepared and wait for it to set, and in the end you pour what will be the gin and tonic jelly. Everything in the fridge, everything mix, no ovens and no hurry, in fact you can do it the day before your party.

The theme molds will depend on the result you want to give. With this recipe, instead of making a large cake mold, I have made 2, a plumcake type, elongated and another round 18cm in diameter, careful when pouring the gin and tonic jelly. If it is very hot you can seep through the mold. I put much more in one than in another. Eye when unmolding. Pass a knife with a smooth blade around it so that the jelly does not stick too much to the mold and is perfect in the release.

Let's cook!
