Using six sheets of phyllo dough, butter each sheet, stacking one on top of the other. Cut the buttered sheets horizontally in half and then vertically into thirds to give 6 pieces. Press each piece firmly into a muffin cup. Repeat process with the remaining phyllo dough.

Bake at 350 ºF (180 ºC) for about 10 min or until golden brown.

Cool for 10 min, remove from muffin pan, complete cooling on rack.

Whip cream until light, fold in custard and orange liqueur. Spoon into 'tulips'. Top with berries and a dollop of whipped cream, if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
