Simple but equally scenic, it will win everyone over for its irresistible taste and its soft and great creaminess. Perfect to serve as a refined end of meal or as a delicious snack to offer to your children.

Cut other ladyfingers, soak them in milk and arrange them side by side to close the cake 5. Place the mold, covered with plastic wrap, in the freezer for at least an hour.
