Strawberry and Honey Mascarpone Tart

This is like the most divine strawberry shortcake, with a twist.
Feel free to replace the strawberries with raspberries, blueberries or even a mixture of the three.

1 x recipe for Sweet Pastry (page 23), with the finely grated rind of 1 orange added in place of the lemon.
