Ingredients for 5 people

1 bar white chocolate

1/4 cup heavy cream

2 oz mascarpone

1/2 cup powdered sugar

10 lady finger cookies

1/2 cup strawberry syrup

1 1/4 cups strawberries

1 pint strawberry sorbet


Tools

Large bowl

Parchment paper

4 skewers


Step 1/4

Cut a triangle out of a white chocolate bar, place it on the back of a hot pan, and then dab it on baking paper to form a white chocolate flower. Chill for 30 minutes.

Step 2/4

Whip the mascarpone, heavy cream, and powdered sugar into a whipped cream. Cut 5 strawberries into pieces. Make 2 skewers of 5 lady finger cookies by inserting a skewer on each end. Line the bottom of the bowl with cling film.

Step 3/4

Spread whipped cream evenly in the bottom of the bowl. Dip each side of lady finger skewer in strawberry syrup, then place on top of the whipped cream, removing skewers and covering with more whipped cream. Place pieces of strawberries and a slice of Strawberry Sorbet on top. Cover with whipped cream, dip each side of the second lady finger skewer, and place it in the center of the whipped cream dome. Close the cling film by pressing on the sides to obtain an oval the shape of a strawberry and set aside in the freezer for 1 hour.

Step 4/4

Remove the plastic wrap, add the remaining whipped cream on top, and smooth it out to get an even frosting. Cut the remaining strawberries into thin slices and place them in the same direction over the entire surface of the cake like scales. Place the white chocolate decoration on the end of the cake to make the strawberry stem. Set aside for 30 minutes in a cool place to set the chocolate, then serve in slices. Enjoy!
