Method

 
1. Mix the mascarpone, castor sugar and vanilla seeds in a mixing bowl. Whip the cream until thick and fold in.

2. Prepare the berry jelly: Heat the castor sugar and water in a saucepan and stir until dissolved. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the berries and remove the saucepan from the plate. Let the mixture cool slightly and then purée it until smooth in a food processor. Pour the purée through a sieve into a clean mixing bowl. Heat the gelatine over warm water or in the microwave until dissolved and add to the berry purée. Allow to cool.

3. To combine: Slice the sponge cake. Cut the slices into circles that will fit into the serving glasses. Place one slice of sponge cake at the bottom of each glass, scoop a layer of fresh berries on top and drizzle with berry liqueur. Place some of the berry purée on top, followed by a layer of the mascarpone mixture. Repeat the layers and finish off with a layer of the mascarpone mixture with fresh berries on top. Refrigerate before serving.
