TWD~Tiramisu Cake

Hello, My name is Noir and I am blogging in place of my owner Sabrina. She was too tired to blog so she asked me to write this for her. So while she is sitting here watching Gossip Girl, I am going to do her dirty work, because she is too busy drooling over Chuck Bass. Whatevs.


Tiramisu cake: I so wanted to make my big comeback with this cake! And sadly, this was my biggest disappointment yet. Mostly because the frosting did NOT turn out right. All that wasted marscapone makes me sad. It tasted awful, and my cream would not get thick.
I did like the cake part... very different than the traditional tiramisu I've been used to.
Making the cake was simple, and I decided to make it in a 9x13" pan instead of the 2 round ones.
So I plopped the icky frosting on top of the cake and sprinkled mini-chocolate chips on top.
It didn't taste half bad, but its not at all what I expected. I wanted the marscapone to be light and fluffy. Oh well, better luck next time.
On PBS the other day Lydia Bastianich made a lovely Limoncello Tiramisu... I would really like to try that sometime, it looked AMAZING!

I am really looking forward to next week's recipe, Lemon Tart. Love me some lemon goodness!
P.S. Thanks Noir for typing this up for me. You are the bomb diggity kitty!

Noir, didn't Sabro get you addicted to GG yet? How can you blog when there is a Poppy scandal to watch and Blair is spilling her heart out?!

vibi said...

Hey! That's not fair! that cat is not a TWD member... no way he's allowed to do your work!

Ha! ah! I knew there was a secret behind all those great recipes you make... extra furry help!!! lol

Limoncello tiramisu...now you're talking! Sorry this wasn't your favorite - I didn't know what to expect with the frosting texture either.

I think you can actually over do the whipping of the mascarpone and it gets a little broken. That may have happened to you. I thought it was interesting that Dorie had us whip it by hand so that would be less likely to happen. I prefer more of a genoise or a true ladyfinger rather than the spongey yellow cake as well. Like you Sabrina, there is nothing better than the aroma of coffee beans or fresh coffee being brewed. Almost better than it tastes. he Sorry you were disappointed. Maybe its the American home bakers version. he he

I am so sorry you didn't like this, but hey, at least you had Chuck Bass to console you, right? And that is 100 x better than cake! :)
