Mascarpone Strawberry Cake

Still posting on what I prepared for my cousin Marguerite. For our dessert, she helped me prepare, this delicious custard cake cum strawberries. The strawberries were brought home by a son who had a brief rest from work in Baguio. And the broas my cousin brought from her trip in Bohol. I thought broas exclusively came from Iloilo. Doesn't matter where it came from, really. The recipe 32 pcs broas 1/2 cup marsala 15 pcs strawberries, halved extra strawberries for decoration Mascarpone custard 4 tbsp custard powder 2 tbsp caster sugar 1 cup milk 1 cup cream 1 tsp vanilla flavoring 400 gm mascarpone cheese First make a custard by combining custard powder, sugar, milk, cream and vanilla flavoring in a saucepan. Whisk until mixture becomes smooth. Cook over very, very low heat. Set aside to cool. Fold mascarpone into cooled custard and then set aside. Now, line a 23 cmx9inch baking pan with a non stick baking paper and line the base with half the broas. Sprinkle with half the marsala
