Tiramisu Cake (TWD)


It’s so funny that this recipe was chosen this week, because I just recently made Tiramisu last week for a friend Kyle’s birthday.  My close friends are all huge Tiramisu fans and request it all the time.  I thought about making this Tiramisu Cake for his birthday, but ended up going with plain old Tiramisu.  Luckily, I got my chance to make this cake very soon afterwards, so it was like a bonus cake 🙂

This recipe had elements very similar to classic Tiramisu.  The cake was soaked in a coffee-flavored syrup, just like the ladyfingers.  The frosting was delicious and tasted much like the one in the classic dessert.  I loved the way Dorie made this into a cake.  It still had the elements of tiramisu, but was combined into this cake, perfect for a celebratory occasion.  Maybe for the next birthday I’ll make this cake again!  I was anxious to find out how my Tiramisu-loving friends would like this cake.  I was so happy to see that they really loved it, and even though we had a small crowd, this cake disappeared quickly.  You can view the recipe on Megan’s site, and view the other creations on the TWD blog.

  1. Mmm delicious. I don’t always like the traditional way of making tiramisu because it’s too mushy but I loved this cake when I made it.

  2. Great job on your cake!

  3. I took my cupcakes to a cookout on Saturday and they vanished faster than I could blink. Yeah, I’m thinking that the tiramisu loving crowd took a liking to this recipe. I know I’ll have to make it again! 🙂
