Made these twice to much admiration from guests. I've also frozen the lemon curd mix in individual portions to add to the baskets at the last minute and these are even classier.

I made these last night for a dinner party. Couldn't get hold of brandy snap baskets so crushed ginger biscuits in the bottoms of small glasses and put the other ingredients on top. Really delicious and got lots of compliments! Possibly the easiest dessrt I've ever made and low fat! Will definitely make again though would add more creme fraiche next time- 200g doesn't make much when using glasses. Also only put 3 tsp lemon curd in.

Here in denmark the brand snap baskets are v hard to find but you can get choc-lined ice cream cone baskets instead which are perfect for this. I added blueberries along with the raspberries - really tasty! They are so quick & easy to make, the end result looks disproportionately professional!

These were fantastic, quick and simple to make yet looked like something bought from a patisserie and plates were scraped clean! Had the left over ones (made 9 using ingredients listed) next day and obviously the baskets had started to go soggy so should not to be made more than a couple of hours before serving.
