Gently combine the two mixtures with a spatula. Fold the whipping into the cheese mixture. Set aside.

In a small bowl mix together the 2 ½ cups of orange juice and the liqueur. Put a thin layer of the cheese mixture into a 9 X 13 pan. Dip one-half of all the ladyfingers into the orange juice mixture, one at a time and place them in rows in the pan.

Spread a layer of the cheese mixture over the lady fingers.

Set aside about 1 ½ cups of the nicest of each of the berries. Take the rest of the berries and in a small food processor, chop them.  Add the ¼ cup sugar and mix well.

Dip the other one-half of the ladyfingers into the orange juice mixture, one at a time and place them in rows going the opposite way in the pan.
