If you think sponge fingers are only for ice-creams and trifles this post might well change your view of them. You see, those tasty little biscuit/sponge fingers can be used to make a Charlotte cake. This combination of dessert, cake and trifle not only taste amazing, but they look pretty awesome as well. So why not grab a plate as we try a small slice from ten of the very best Charlotte cake recipes I could find…

This fruity little number has both blackberry and raspberry mousse inside the main cake and topped off with some fresh berries just to make it even more mouthwatering. Perfect for picnics and summer teatime in the garden.

Now, this is what I call a serious birthday cake! the base under those amazing Double-Dipped strawberries is a Tiramisu style giving this recipe a very French taste and look.

If the white cream and fresh raspberries on top are not enough to get your mouth drooling, the soft raspberry mouse filling certainly will. I’m not quite sure what part of it is “Russe” but i’ll have a slice anyway!

What I love about Charlotte cakes is every person who makes who has their own style, their own way of making them. Some make it more of a ‘dessert cake’ and others like this recipe tend to stick to its trifle traditional roots. Its like expressionism in dessert cake form.

Filled with a Bittersweet chocolate truffle mousse this divine dessert recipe is sure to make any dinner party end in style. Or maybe it could make the whole family smile. (personally, I would just eat it all in a quiet corner of the kitchen).

As if the tiramisu mouse inside of the cake wasn’t good enough, each sponge finger is dipped in chocolate and left to harden in the fridge. It just makes you want to peal one off and dip it into the cakes filling.

With its Apple Caramel rose in the middle this Charlotte cake is as pretty as a picture. But I bet it tastes even better (especially with some cream on top of it).
