Pour mixture into a cake mould. Add the fruit you like, such as litchi, mango, apricot, berries….Bake at 175C (350F) for 20 mins

To check if it’s cooked you need to stick a knife blade in and check if it comes out clean.

In a mixer whip the cream then add the icing sugar. Finish with the mascarpone and the rose essence & coloring if you wish,  you can also add cinnamon, ginger, spices,…

Then add the cream on top of the cake, make sure cake is cooled down so it doesn’t melt.
