  1. Step 1

    Coarsely chop half the strawberries. Place in a bowl with blackberries and half the raspberry. Add the orange juice, lime juice, ¼ cup (40g) icing sugar and 1 tsp vanilla. Use a fork to coarsely crush the berry mixture. Set aside for 30 mins or until berries release their juice.
  2. Step 2

    Use an electric mixer to whisk the crème fraîche, cream, remaining icing sugar and remaining vanilla in a large bowl until firm peaks form. Use a slotted spoon to add the berry mixture, reserving the juices in the bowl. Gently fold to marble.
  3. Step 3

    Arrange one-third of the meringue and macaron in a serving dish and top with dollops of crème fraîche mixture. Repeat layering with the remaining meringue, remaining macaron and remaining crème fraîche mixture.
  4. Step 4

    Thinly slice remaining strawberries. Sprinkle over meringue mixture in the dish with remaining raspberry. Drizzle with reserved syrup. Serve immediately.
