Matcha Castella & Blueberry Verrine

This is more of a dessert hack than anything. Remember the castella cake from Minamoto Kitchoan yesterday? I added a couple of more ingredients to make a sweet verrines in Weck jars. A verrine is an appetizer or dessert where a number of components are layered in a small glass.

MATCHA CASTELLA & BLUEBERRY VERRINE
Makes 2 verrines 

INGREDIENTS
6 tablespoons heavy cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 tablespoon mascarpone 
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 
matcha castella 
1/4 pint blueberries
4 crepe cookies

DIRECTIONS
1. Whip together powdered sugar, mascarpone, vanilla extract, and heavy cream until it thickens.
2. Layer two jars with cubed castella, whipped cream, crumbled crepe cookies, and blueberries.
3. Repeat with another set of layers. Top with a whole crepe cookie. Enjoy!
