Berry Mascarpone Layer Cake #Recipe

Easter was this past week-end which meant family dinners. The best part about family dinners besides seeing your family? The sweet desserts! My aunt has gotten back into doing what she loves, baking and we are all pretty blessed because she is so damn good at it.

A couple weeks before Easter she had seen this Facebook video for a Berry Mascarpone Layer Cake and decided she would make it herself. The creation itself was a slice of heaven, literally! Each layer was light and fluffy with a light flavor that was not over powering but just right.

The frosting was AMAZING! It paired so well with the cake and fresh fruit and left you wanting more. My favourite part? The cake was the right amount of everything! This cake will be made for all our get togethers from now on, right Auntie?

    I am not a big cake eater but I would eat this one. The thick layer of berry filling and the mascarpone frosting must make for a moist cake.
