I decided to make my cake into cupcakes, as I am baking some things for an animal fundraising event. Cupcakes are much easier to pass out. The recipe made about 15 cupcakes, and they baked up beautifully.
If you're not familiar with Mascarpone, it's the Italian version of cream cheese. It's a bit smoother, and less tangy than our cream cheese. It's lovely in desserts.
I'm not a coffee drinker, but I do like the flavor of coffee in Tiramisu. In the recipe, the cake layers are soaked in a syrup made from sweetened espresso and brandy. To get the same effect with my mini-cakes, I poked small holes in the cupcakes and poured some of the syrup over the top and into the holes.
This was a nice recipe and quite easy to make. If you like Tiramisu, this cake is for you. To see the full recipe, please visit the charming blog, "My Baking Adventures". http://mybakingadventures.com/2009/05/05/twd-tiramisu/
