Pour the gelatin into the warm strawberry coulis.

Set aside in a bowl a few ladles of strawberry coulis. (It will be used to soak the lady fingers)

Let´s whip some cream …

Whip the cold heavy cream until it is firm. Add a few spoons of ice sugar in the end of the process.

soaking some lady fingers .. let´s try to keep off the biscuits 😛

Put aside the lady fingers that will be used for the decoration on the outside. (In my recipe I used 22 lady fingers.)

Place the lady fingers on the edges of the cake form on the round side.

Lightly soak the rest of the lady fingers to make the bottom of the charlotte.
