Fruits inside, fruits outside, and a dash of rich whipped cream to hold them together! Well, as the name suggests Gateau Citronella is a dessert that features ample citrus fruits like kiwi, orange and sweet lime sandwiched between cream-coated, sugar-soaked vanilla sponge cake. Layering the sponge with Chantilly cream, which is sweetened whipped cream, works like magic in imparting a creamy texture to every mouthful. Refrigerating the arrangement for a while is essential for the fruity filling and garnish to set. Continue to store it in the fridge till serving, to ensure that the fruits remain fresh.
