    1. Combine all the berries in a bowl. Mix icing sugar and lemon juice and pour over berries. Stir carefully to combine.
    2. Place lady fingers in a freezer bag. Seal and place on a flat surface. Crush with a rolling pin to make coarse crumbs. Spread crumbs on dessert plates. Top with berries.
    3. To make mascarpone cream, whisk mascarpone, milk, orange liqueur and sugar in a bowl until thick and well combined. Spoon a little mascarpone cream onto each serving. Dust with a little icing sugar.

    cook's tip

    Try a combination of peaches, apricots, plums and mangoes and flavour the mascarpone cream with almond liqueur instead of orange.
