Family Bonding Preparation


Another year has passed since my mother died 5 years ago. It was and it still is our tradition to remember her last day on earth by having a family bonding at home in the Philippines. Remembering how it was with her.


As the eldest child, I (as I´m still here in my home country) had to organize what my siblings and I had to do to make the family get together a success. One of my sisters went to the church to make an appointment for the next day so that the priest could read a mass for my mother. I contacted the friend of my mother to lead the prayer at my mothers grave. I planned, bought and cooked the food with the help of my cousin Jane and my sister-in-law who is living nearby. My siblings were helping me in one way or another. The reception was of course at my house.


As the family bonding was in the afternoon, I did not have to cook much. It was an afternoon snack. There were fried noodles, toasted strawberry jam , tinamburan ( a brown and white milk rice cooked in coconut milk, formed into sausages and packed in banana leaves and steamed), pineapple slices, banana cake, none alcoholic drinks and of course my new recipe.

Step by Step

  1. Prepare a 30x20cm baking form by spreading it with margarine . For the first layer, arrange 10 pieces of Graham Crackers or as much as you need, inside the baking form. It depends on how big the crackers are.
  2. With the use of silicon or any kind of baking brush, spread one tablespoon of cherry liqour on top of the Graham Crackers. Leave some cherry liqour for the second layer and for the cream mixture.
  3. Add half of the cherry fillings on top of the flavoured Grahams Crackers.
  4. Whip the all purpose cream with the condensed milk with an electric mixer or a hand mixer. Add 1 tablespoon of cherry liqour as a flavouring.
  5. Put 1/2 of the whipped cream mixture on top of the cherry fillings. Spread them neatly with the use of spatula.
  6. For the second layer: Arrange the remaining Graham Crackers on top of the whipped cream mixture. Brush the remaining cherry liqour on top. Add some cherry fillings and cover it with the remaining whipped cream. With the use of spatula, spread it neatly on the baking form. Sprinkle grated chocolate on top and decorate it with either fresh cherries or some cherries from the cherry fillings.
  7. Cover the finished product with alufoil and freeze it for at least 3 hours or overnight. It will be like a frozen cake. Enjoy!

Tips on Making Frozen Cherry Cream Dessert

  • If you don´t like condensed milk, you can substitute it with refined sugar. Just add 50 gram sugar first to the all purpose cream and try if it is sweet enough for you. If it´s not, just add more to your liking. Whip the cream and the sugar, but don´t make it stiff. Just make it a bit creamy and spreadable.
  • The servings is for 15 persons, but it depends anyway on how big your slice is.
  • Always get the frozen cherry cream desert a few minutes out from the freezer before you serve it.
  • Cut the frozen cherry by dipping the sharp knife into a hot water and wipe it with a clean towel or kitchen paper before cutting. Do it every time you cut the dessert as long as it is still hard to cut.



The family bonding was a great success. Everybody enjoyed it especially the young children who were playing around the garden. I was contented. There was not much for me to eat for the next day. Thanks to the family for that;-) That means the food was yummy to eat. Until next time. Who knows what comes into my mind!


Thanks for stopping by.

A delicious recipe hub with easy-to-follow instructions and drool-worthy photos! Hope there is substitute for cherry liquor (I and my family prefer to use non-alcoholic ingredients for making dishes).

I am very sorry that your beloved mother passed away. May her soul rests in peace always.

Rated your recipe 5 stars! Well-done!

Thanks for SHARING. Useful & Awesome. Voted up, pinned & shared

Yes, drbj. It´s yummy. Why not try it for your summer party. The Tinamburan is delicious, too. I might write the recipe about it when I have learned how to make it. I only ordered those Tinamburan from my friend. I´m not so good in making Filipino desserts. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi ishwaryaa,

You can make this recipe without cherry liqour but with cherry flavouring if you can find it in the supermarket. You can try with vanilla flavouring as well.

Thanks for your concern about my mother. I´m sure she´s in peace now. Thanks for stopping by and for sharing/pinning this recipe. Have a great week!

Hi Thelma,

My thoughts were with you the instant I read about your mum's passing. I lost my mum too 15 years ago so know the void it can leave. What a wonderful get together you planned for the family and quite a mouthwatering feast, may I say!!

This cherry desert looks heavenly even though we don't get graham crackers I know from other recipes that our digestives would work great. Voted up, useful, awesome, shared and pinned - the works!!

Great recipe and pics, good job!!

Hi Janet,

I know how you feel missing Filipino food. I´m sure your mother taught you how to cook this food and you can buy the ingredients in the Asian supermarket near you.

Thank you for your nice concern about my dear mother. I´m sure she´s in peace now. It´s always wonderful to have a family bonding in remembrance of her. Thanks for stopping by. God bless you and your family, too.

I love frozen desserts and I love cherries, so this one is just perfect for me. I can't wait to try it! I may have to substitute a different fruit, though, since cherries are hard to find in Peru. Thank you for sharing your special recipe you enjoy on your special family occasion.


Thelma Alberts profile image

Thelma Alberts 3 years ago from Germany Author

Of course you can try this recipe with another fruit you have in Peru. I have tried making this with ripe mangoes and it was awesome and delicious, too. That was for a change in taste. Yummy. Thanks for dropping by, vespawoolf;-)

Your frozen cherry cream dessert is indeed delicious! I liked the way you remembered your mother with a get together of the whole family. This is a privilege many people don't have. That makes this recipe all the more special and enjoyable.

Thanks for sharing the details!
