Charlotte aux fraises

Every now and then for parties I like to throw together a Charlotte. They look really pretty, and to be honest, aren't a lot of work, relative to other layered cakes. I've posted about a Charlotte Russe on my blog before but previously didn't share the recipe. Since I was attending two family parties, I decided to make a strawberry Charlotte, or Charlotte aux fraises. The ladyfingers and Bavarian cream are super light and reminiscent of a lot of Asian cakes.
