Exotic Fruit Overload

July was truly dedicated to fruits, all kinds of fruits – mangoes, pineapples, kiwi fruit, cherries, peaches, plum, you name it and it was there. Till a few years back one would have to really hunt for exotic fruits like kiwi, mangosteen, rambutan, and figs etc., but now with supermarkets mushrooming up, these fruits are easily available.

Keeping up with the season, I baked lots of fresh fruit cream cakes, and few of them I could actually capture on my camera before they got demolished like others.

Exotic fruit overload – there are two variations:

Chocolate Fruit Overload: Chocolate sponge layered with fresh whipped cream and finely chopped pineapples, apples, and mangoes. On the top goes scoops and slices of kiwis, mangoes, apples, pineapples, and mellon over dollop of fresh whipped cream.

Then I baked Bakewell Pie, which was long awaited. I could salvage one wedge of the Pie for the picture.
