I made this at school for gcse and i loved it. It was so simple and easy to make, because it only took 10 mins, and i put it in the fridge for the rest of the 2 hours. I changed it by adding strawberries and orange zest in the Lemon Syllabub and Orange zest on top. I Loved it Thankyou for putting it on the website. It is now in my binder FOREVER.

284 ml is equivalent to 10 fluid oz, which is is also roughly 1 cup in US parlance
