What I like most about summer is definitely summer fruits, especially berries. At the beginning of the season I always tempt to buy a few packs even when the prices are just too high; I simply cannot resist these gorgeous fruits! Luckily, now it’s the middle of the season, prices are getting lower; and I can finally enjoy them without having to take a second mortgage 😉

One of the things I like to make with summer fruits is this mascarpone ice cream cake. I like how they make the most common ice cream cake a beauty queen, just by decoration it so beautifully on top. This mascarpone ice cream cake is definitely a delicious summer treat.

It is very easy to prepare and made of layers of berry ice cream and mascarpone ice cream that are easily and quickly made without an ice cream maker, with berries in them. I used fresh berries for decoration, but you can use any summer fruit you like to arrange them just before serving.
