  1. With an electric whisk, whip together the mascarpone and custard in a bowl. Cover and chill until ready to use. Roughly mash most of the raspberries with the elderflower cordial.

This is also great if you use Bacardi Razz instead of kirsch. Once, I forgot to leave any raspberries for decoration, so just sprinkled grated chocolate on the top. Now I always do that! This is really easy to make, but always looks impressive, and everyone loves it!

Made this for a summer party. Used cassis as had no kirsch and used a mix of raspberries, strawberries & nectarine for a real summer flavour. Everyone loved it, especially the fact that it had no cream in it therefore felt more "healthy!" So easy too, I will definitely make this again.

Made this last night for a dinner party with some girlfriends. It was REALLY easy and absolutely delicious - and looks very gorgeous in a glass. I substitued kirsch for dessert wine as I didnt have any kirsch. It was heavenly - even if it is very calorie laden (I switched the custard for low fat to try and lessen the diet damage!!)

I left out the elderflower cordial when I made this as my family aren't keen on the floral flavour, but nevertheless it went down a treat - and now I have to make it every year!
