Before serving  ( in last minute) you can decorate it with strawberries, but carefully because strawberries are moisture and can dilute cream at the top.

Put a leaf of mint on a top of each individual serving and its flavor refreshes each and every bite.

Yummy, I love this slight crunchy taste of hazelnut brittle in the cream!

This cake is best served the day after it is made as this will emphasize the texture and taste of the cake.
