Mascarpone Mousse Cake

Roopa

This was an interesting twist on the tiramisu. We adjusted the tiramisu recipe (as it would not be stable enough) and also added some whipped cream to make it a mousse, rather than a true tiramisu. 

This cake requires sponge fingers and a mascarpone mousse. Optionally, you can add a strawberry soaking syrup and some berries inside.
