    Mirj's Note:

    This is in response to a recipe request, although I think I've fallen in love with the ingredients! I can't wait to try out this cake, the combination of cream cheese and Mascarpone sounds heavenly! Prep time includes chill time, and the only cook time is to bake the crumb crust.
