  4. To make the chocolate curls, put  the milk chocolate in one glass bowl and the dark chocolate in another. Add 1 tsp of oil to each bowl, then melt over simmering water.  Pour the dark chocolate into a plastic container, the drizzle in the milk chocolate and swirl together with a skewer. Chill for at least an hour. When solid, tip out the chocolate and drag a wide peeler over the chocolate block to create curls. Place on a parchment lined tray and chill.
  5. Slice the bananas and sprinkle the lemon juice onto them. Stir the mascarpone, icing sugar and vanilla extract together until smooth.  Place a cake layer onto a serving plate or cake stand, spread on half the mascarpone filling, then top with half the bananas and half the caramel. Repeat with another cake layer, then sandwich together with the final cake layer. Using a a palette knife, arrange the chocolate curls on top of the cake.
