Berry Mascarpone Whipped Cream Cake
Time flies so fast. When we celebrate the birthdays of our kids each time, I wish they were young as babies. They seem to grow faster even before we realize. Lockdown days have made us watch all the baby videos we recorded when they were young. The super cute chubby babies have grown to young teens now. Where did all the time go?
I miss the days where we had lots of celebrations and their friends come over for the birthday party. The boys never cared for birthday parties. Its our daughter who likes her friends to come over and have a party and a cake. But this year, we had to celebrate it just within the family.
I baked a 3 tiered berry cake for her birthday. She likes whipped cream fruity cakes. So it was easy to decide what to bake for her. Since there was no party I made this small 3 tiered 6'' cake. This berry cake is moist and really delicious with the Mascarpone whipped cream frosting. If you like fruity cakes with light whipped frosting, this cake is for you.
