Add the beer mixture and fold together gently. Tip into the prepared tins and bake for 25 minutes until just firm to the touch. Cool in tins for 30 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool, peeing off the paper when cold.
The rhubarb fool:
Place the rhubarb in a pan with the elderflower syrup and sugar and bring slowly to the boil, stirring continuously. Cook gently for 8 – 10 minutes until just tender. Allow to cool. Put the cream in a bowl, then gradually fold in the cooled rhubarb.
To serve, place one cake on a large serving plate and spread the fool generously over. Place the other cake on top and top with more fool so that it slithers down the sides of the cake and look altogether too tempting for words!!
