  4. Grease the baking tin with a knob of butter.
  5. Roll the dough out on a floured counter and shape into the size of the baking tin. Line the bottom of the baking tin with the dough. Bake the bottom in the oven for about 15 minutes.

  7. Then beat the cream cheese together with the icing sugar. Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese.
  8. Cut the pitahayas in half lengthwise and spoon out the flesh.
  9. Puree the flesh in a blender.
  10. Put the pureed pitahaya in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  11. Place the gelatin in cold water. Squeeze the gelatine leaves and add this to the pitahaya.
  12. Turn off the heat when the gelatin is dissolved. Then put the pan in cold water.
  13. Pour the cream cheese filling on the cake bottom when it has cooled down.
  14. Pour the pitahaya juice over the cake when it starts to gel.
