  • 1 package of green jelly (kiwi)

  • Melt the butter in the microwave. Pour crushed cookies, mix well.
  • Take a detachable shape (I have a shape 22 in diameter). You can put a circle cut out of parchment paper at the bottom of the form so that later it would be easier to shift the cake somewhere. Pour crumbs into the form, distribute and tamp. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.

  • Pour gelatin in 100 ml of water and leave to swell for 10 minutes (or for the time indicated on the package).
  • Put gelatin on a small fire, warm to about 40-50 degrees. Stir, the gelatin should completely dissolve. Cool.
  • From lime, cut 1/4 parts from two edges, squeeze the juice from them (about 2 tablespoons will work). Leave the middle part of lime for decoration.
  • Sour cream, cream cheese, sugar, vanilla sugar, lime juice, beat until sugar is dissolved.

  • Pour jelly over the frozen cream layer. Put the cake in the refrigerator for 4-5 hours until completely solidified.
  • To remove the collapsible side, without damaging the edges of the cake, I advise you to use a regular hairdryer. Uniformly heat the outside with the hairdryer for a minute, then gently unfasten the form.
