Cook's Tips:

Ladyfingers are sheets of sponge cake that can be separated into long ovals and are found in the bakery section of most grocery stores.

One 16-oz (about 390-g) frozen pound cake, thawed, trimmed and diced into 1-in. (2.5-cm) cubes, can be substituted for the ladyfingers, if desired.

To create strawberry fan, open Egg Slicer Plus® and place the strawberry stem end down; slice most of the way through it with wires. Remove the strawberry from the wires and gently fan out the slices.
