Egg Liqueur Tiramisu Cake

, , , , , , ,

I wanted to bake a beautiful cake, like a ‘Wow’ cake! Since it will soon be easter, I thought why not an Egg Liqueur Cake, and to make it like even more ‘interesting’, why not pack tiramisu with it. The result was a wonderful Egg Liqueur Tiramisu Cake.

This cake has a fluffy sponge base soaked with coffee, between the layers a mascarpone cream refined with lots of egg liqueur and of course ladyfingers. On the top shines a layer of egg liqueur surrounded with ladyfingers which were decorated with chocolate.

I think this delicious cake is perfect for the Easter holidays, as a birthday cake or just so.

This cake is not recommended for kids, obviously because of the alcohol, unless you use a non-alcoholic egg liqueur.

Normally, gelatin has no place in a tiramisu, but you need it here for stability.
Soak the ladyfingers a coffee and amaretto mix. However, I like it best with some cocoa powder added. Just a question of taste.
