  1. In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks form. Fold the mascarpone gently into the whipped cream, until well incorporated. Set aside.
  2. Place half of the strawberries into the blender pitcher. Blend until smooth. Mix the remaining whole berries with the pureed strawberries in a large bowl.
  3. Layer 1/3 of the angel food cake cubes in the bottom of a trifle or serving dish. Cover with 1/3 of the strawberries and blueberries and gently spoon 1/3 of the cream mixture over the fruit. Repeat the layers twice, ending with the cream mixture. Chill until ready to serve.
  4. When ready to serve, run a vegetable peeler over the edge of the dark chocolate bar, letting the curls fall onto the top of the dessert.

see my notes--use fresh berries, make natural sauce by adding sugar [not much} a squeeze of lemon juice and a little grand marnier. Cream- add sugar, sugar vanilla and grand marnier!

Very pretty presentation, but really lacked in flavor. The cream/cheese mixture does need some added flavor, whether it be some sugar or vanilla. We had to mix the whole thing together because the cream just overpowered everything else. Will try it again sometime with some adjustments to the cream layer.

This is a very refreshing twist to a classic tiramisu. I could only give it four stars because it does lack a little in flavor without the coffee liquer. I will definatly make this again.

This received rave reviews at my brother's annual July 4 weekend cookout! Everyone wanted the recipe. Next time I'm going to try it with peaches and raspberries!

This is an excellent recipe as others have said. However, I agree with other reviewers that it requires a couple of tweaks to make it truly outstanding. First of all, you really should use fresh fruit, not frozen. Also, you need sugar and some type of flavoring both for the berry mixture and the cream mixture. Otherwise, it really is quite bland. I found Grand Marnier was the perfect flavor to complement the berries, much better than coffee liqueur would be. With those changes, it was a hit both times I've made it so far. And it's beautiful to look at too, bonus!
