These were incredibly easy and looked impressive and my guests loved them but i thought they were a bit too sweet, i'd reduce the amount of lemon curd slightly next time

Very quick and easy - but looks really impressive! Great for impressing friends when you don't have much time - guaranteed to get compliments. I forgot to pop it back in the fridge but still tasted delicious.

Gorgeous and sooo quick, make sure curd is room temp not refridgerated or can go lumpy!!

This was a fantastic dish! Quick and easy but looks very impressive. I left out the chocolate and I'm really glad I did. I thought the lemon and the raspberries made it refreshing and tangy.

I made these for a dinner for my friends and it went down so well they all asked for the recipe. I have also used it for cheesecake style dish. Crush some ginger biscuit or digestives and place in a glass then layer the cream mixture and raspberries on top. Grate the chocolate on top if using

My friends were impressed, they loved it and could not believe I made it myself. However, mixing all of the créme fraiche with the lemon curd gives you far to much of the filling for 6 brandy baskets.

The second time I made these, I used orange curd instead of lemon. Equally brilliant result! Blueberries work well instead of raspberries and make a nice colour contrast.
