Only the yolks are usually used for Easter cake dough, as they make the pastry fluffy and have a pleasant yellow color. Therefore, the whites of the eggs just stay in the bowl. It's a shame to throw away such a product, but you won't have to if you use the technology we offer.

The idea of making a simple white dessert was published on the Instagram page of food blogger Iryna Moravska (ira.moravska). You will need fresh, juicy strawberries.
