1 cups whipping cream
1/2 tsp gelatin powder
1/2 tbs water
1 tbs sugar

4. Pour cake batter into the prepared tin and bake for 35-40 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.

5. Cool and remove from tin. Then cut the cake in to bite sized pieces. Save the crumbs for sprinkling on the top if you wish.

6. Make the whipped cream - Put gelatin and water in a small bowl. Microwave at 15 second intervals to dissolve the gelatin.
