Step 1
Line an 8-inch pan with parchment paper and set aside.
Step 2
In a large mixing bowl, add Mascarpone Cheese (1 pckg) and Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1/2 cup) and mix until well combined.
Step 3
Add in Heavy Cream (1 1/2 cups) and a big pinch of Saffron Threads (1 pinch) . Using a hand mixer, mix on low for 1 minute.
Step 4
Proceed to mix for 3-4 minutes on high speed until the whisk trails show in the cream. The cream should be thick and have semi-soft peaks.
Step 5
Spoon 1/4 cup of the saffron cream into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread it out into an even layer and top with a layer of Lemon Cookies (16) . Add a little less than half of the saffron cream on top and spread evenly.
Step 6
Layer Fresh Strawberries (7) on top. Add another layer of Lemon Cookies (16) .
Step 7
Spoon another layer of saffron cream on top, making sure to leave behind about 1 cup of cream for the top layer. Spread it into an even layer and top with a layer of Peach (1) .
Step 8
Add one more layer of Lemon Cookies (16) and spread the rest of the cream on top.
Step 9
Loosely wrap the pan in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8 hours up to overnight. You can also freeze the cake for 4 hours.
