Tiramisu (Birthday) Cake!

It's another Tuesdays with Dorie and I love that this week's baking challenge fell so close to my birthday... It made it easier for me to come up with a cake flavor to make and celebrate with! For this week, fellow Tuesdays with Dorie bakers made her Tiramisu Cake, chosen by Megan, of My Baking Adventures.



This cake involved making the cake batter, espresso extract, espresso syrup, mascarpone filling and frosting. Once finished, it needed to chill to allow the flavors to meld. For garnish, I used bittersweet chocolate chips to coat the edges, dusted the top with unsweetened cocoa and added some chocolate covered espresso beans for good measure.

Overall, I thought the cake was good with a really nice crumb. If there was anything I would do differently if I made this again, I would double the filling/frosting (because that's my favorite part of tiramisu)! Be sure to check out how the tiramisu cake turned out for other TWD bakers!

  4. What a great design on the sides of the cake - and I agree that the filling is the best part, which is why even though I only made half the cake, I kept the full amount of filling.
