Cheesecake 
1. Add your mascarpone (or regular cream cheese), 65g of icing sugar, the juice and zest of ½ a lemon and vanilla and whisk till smooth and creamy. 
2. Separately whisk the double cream till it forms soft peaks. Mix 1/3 of the whipped cream into the macarpone (or cream cheese) mixture to make it lighter, then very gently fold in the remaining cream. 
3. Add onto your biscuit base and smooth it over. Chill in the fridge for 6-7 hours, or preferably overnight. 
4. To decorate cut the strawberries in quarters, add the raspberries, blueberries and a few drops of lemon juice and the remaining icing sugar. Leave to macerate for 30mins in the fridge.
