- In a large bowl mix half of the xylitol powder with the mascarpone, add vanilla and other flavours by choice.
- In a different large bowl mix the liquid cream with the other half of the xylitol powder.
- Make sure you save some cream to decorate the cake with the piping bag.

- Mix the agar - agar into the Mascarpone together with the cream. Taste and adjust the sweetness and flavours.
- Remove the cake tin out of the fridge and pour the filling cream in batches so you can spread layers of fruit.
- Pour the filling cream in 2-3 batches so you can add layers of fruit.

- Gently remove the ring of the cake tin. Slice carefully and serve,Enjoy!
- The vegan cream and the vegan Mascarpone are both Schalgfix, I couldn't find any other brands.
- Agar-Agar is a vegan substitute for gelatine. It's made from algae.You can buy it as flakes or powder. It needs to be boiled in water before using it. I strongly recommend to follow the instruction on the package.
- The crust can be the same for any cheescake. I was able to find some vegan gluten free shortbread - Orgran Shortbread Hearts Vegan Gluten Free 150 gr per package.
- Feel free to use fruits of your choice but they shouldn't be juicy.
