Ingredients
 
 

  • 16-18 fresh large strawberries
  • cup mascarpone cheese
  • cup cream
  • 2-3 tbsp caster sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions
 

  • Start off by cutting the green stems of the strawberries so that they will sit uptright on the serving tray.
  • With a knife, cut an "X" into each strawberry, cutting almost to the bottom. The cut should be such that the strawberry will open up but not fall apart.
  • Gently, with your fingertips, spread each strawberry apart to make "petals".
  • Set aside while you make the cream filling.
  • In a medium sized bowl, whip the mascarpone cheese and whipping cream until soft peaks form.
  • Add the sugar and vanilla and continue to whip until stiff peaks form.
  • Spoon the cream into a piping bag fitted with a large open star tip.
  • Pipe the cream into the strawberries.
  • If not serving immediately, cover, and place in the fridge until serving time.
