  1. Step 1:

    In a saucepan place the raspberries with the liqueur, and cook on a slow heat until the fruits start to soften. Using a fork, mash the mixture up roughly and leave to cool.

  2. Step 2:

    In a large bowl, and using an electric hand whisk, whisk the cream with the sugar and vanilla extract to nice soft peaks.

  3. Step 3:

    In another large bowl, stir the mascarpone around to soften it, then fold in the cream.

  4. Step 4:

    In individual glass dishes, layer all the different ingredients. Top with any remaining fresh raspberries and just before serving sprinkle the popping candy on the top.
