Checkered Berry Parfait by cakecrumbs Checkered Berry Parfait by cakecrumbs
After ending up with over 8kg of strawberries for a mere $13, I had lots of berries to burn. This was the first way I decided to burn them.

The dessert is something I've made numerous times, but have spent a lot of time altering the recipe and learning from mistakes, and now I'm finally content with the result.

This parfait is made from bars of strawberry and blackberry mousse, served with a strawberry coulis and fresh strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries.

The teeny strawberry seen in the foreground is the first one to come from my garden this year. Woohoo!

Recipe and a tonne of pictures at the blog: [link]

It's interesting too hear you say perfect squares - cause I was actually a bit miffed at the imperfection!
