Serves: 6


  • 250g mascarpone cheese
  • 8 tablespoons double cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 6 tablespoons Siucra icing sugar
  • 1 Large premade pastry shell

To decorate:

  • 250g strawberries, sliced in half
  • 125g blueberries

  2. Add in the icing sugar and stir well to mix.

Top tips for decorating using stencils:

You can buy stencils in shops or use something from your own kitchen that will act as a stencil. Place your stencil on your plate or a cake and dust over icing sugar through a sieve. Lift the stencil off gently and your design is left behind.
