Combine the strawberries with 1/4 cup of the sugar and set aside. Cut the vanilla bean in half lengthwise, scrape out the sticky paste and fold it into the cream. Whip the cream with 1/2 cup of sugar until soft peaks form.

Layer 1/2 of the cake cubes in a clear bowl, drizzle with 1/2 of the brandy and sprinkle 1/2 of the fruit, including the strawberries with their juice, over the cake. Top with 1/2 of the custard or vanilla pudding and 1/2 of the whipped cream. Repeat the layers with cake, brandy, fruit and custard. Spread the last of the whipped cream over the top and garnish with extra fruits and edible flowers if you have them!

Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
