    Default CAKE OF WEEK-END: ZUPPA INGLESE

    Zuppa inglese: a traditional italian cake. We are talking of slices of
    sponge cake wet with alkermes and rum liqueur; custard among the
    layers and whipped cream on surface: simply delicious!

    Ciao Pandora, what would you use if you did not have alchermes? I
    don't think I have ever seen that...

    It was unfamiliar to me too, but I found out it's traditional for
    zuppa inglese. Guess that shows how many I've eaten in my life! I
    googled for a substitute and surprise, surprise - I found something
    http://www.ciaoitalia.com/seasons/7/...sh-trifle-cake I think
    I'd like it with Chambord and what a good excuse to buy some.

    Well, I would put something red, such as a a raspberry liqueur if you
    have it. You need something red to make contrast with rum layer.

    I didn't know zuppa ingelise had to have colored layers, Pandora, but
    Chambord is raspberry liqueur - so that problem is solved.
