I discovered a Mascarpone Cake at a local restaurant. It is my favorite dessert! (Well except for the Napoleons at Belle Pastry in Bellevue, WA). One thing that I have done for each of my kids birthdays is to make a cake. I want it to be one of the traditions they remember that Mama made them a cake for their birthday. This Berry Mascarpone Layer Cake has layers of fluffy vanilla cake, fresh berry filling and mascarpone whipped cream frosting!
My youngest was born on Christmas Eve and we always celebrate his birthday in the morning and then after lunch it turns into Christmas with my side of the family. A tradition I started when my oldest was born was to make them a special cake of their choice. I’ve made some wonderful cakes and some “fails”. But no matter the outcome I keep trying.
I made this Mascarpone Berry Cake a couple years ago and figure it was time to bring it back. Jacky’s only request was that it must be a hockey cake. So yummy cake with hockey guys on it…you got it Buddy!
This cake has three layers of sponge with berry filling and a mascarpone frosting! You can make the cake layers ahead of time and freeze. In fact I encourage it because it makes it easier to frost. We are also hosting Christmas Eve so the more I can get done a head of time, the better!
