  1. Line 2 (4-inch) springform pans with parchment paper. Lightly spray bottoms and sides of pans with nonstick cooking spray. Line bottoms of pans with ladyfingers, making sure they are very close together. Brush ladyfingers with coffee liqueur.

  3. In a separate bowl, beat remaining half of mascarpone, strawberry extract, and 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar at medium speed until smooth.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat cream and remaining 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar at medium-high speed until stiff peaks form.
  5. To assemble, spread chocolate-mascarpone mixture evenly over ladyfingers. Spread strawberry-mascarpone mixture evenly over chocolate-mascarpone mixture. Spread whipped cream over strawberry-mascarpone mixture. Freeze for 4 hours or until firm.
  6. To serve, remove from freezer, carefully release sides of springform pans, and remove. Garnish with chocolate curls and strawberries, if desired. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.
