  3. On high, beat egg yokes.
  4. Mix in the sugar until pale yellow and thick.
  5. In separate bowl, whip heavy cream until light and fluffy, then fold in mascarpone. Continue to fold until smooth and not lumpy.
  6. Mix together egg yolk and sugar, with heavy cream and mascarpone.

  9. Pour the rest of the cream on top of the second layer of lady fingers.
  10. Lastly, sift cocoa over the top.
