Notes
Prepare the individual items before hand, assembling then becomes an easy job

If you do not have a electric hand beater use a balloon whisk or hand beater to whisk the cream

Always make sure the cream is chilled to ensure it does not separate or turn into butter

Ensure cake and juice are all completely cool before starting to frost the cake. Or the cream will melt

Inverting the cake before gives a smooth finish to top as the base is always nice and flat
