Tiramisu

At last I made it!!.This is the second time I make Tiramisu,the first time HERE was a disaster!!..So I make sure I get the right ingrendients this time.I used Chef Gertrude recipe but do some alternation...After long thinking,I decided to make Tiramisu for hubby's Birthday.Must face my own demon la!!..hahaha!!
I forget to take the whole cake photo before cutting....keep changing the ribbon...at first put some lacy ribbon,then a pink strip ribbon but this is a man Birthday cake,no lace and pink color for him!!..At last change to purple with Butterfly pin.

I cut half of my Tiramisu and gave to my neighbour.I know 3 of us can't finish the whole cake,why throw away later..
How it's look?.I found a Happy Birthday stand in my drawer.
Did you notice the middle group raspberry is bigger than the rest?.Yes,during our dinner at Outback Steak House,I run to Walbaum to but another box of raspberry.
I try this design but it's look so awful.Hubby hint why no words to indicate his Birthday.For him Birthday is a big deal!!.
Process in decoration,still undecided what to put in middle.Strawberry or candy?.Actually I took the picture during the process of making this Tiramisu in my new camera but new camera can't download without card reader to computer...ouch!! ....forget about new camera,just use old one first!!
So this time I bought Italian ladyfingers, mascarpone cheese, unsweetened cocoa powder, dark rum and heavy whipping cream not half and half!!.I almost buy chocolate mascarpone cheese but afraid it's won't turn out good.Anyway,let try with regular mascarpone cheese first,if OK next time chocolate flavor!!
Ingredients :
3 tub 8oz mascarpone cheese
1 tbsp of raspberry coffee liqueur
6 tbsp of sugar
600 ml of heavy cream
1 cup of strong brewed Godiva coffee...
1/4 cup of dark rum
48 lady fingers
unsweetened cocoa powder
Method:

1)Mixing bowl whisk the whipping cream with 4 tbsp of sugar until firm peak. set aside
2) In a second mixing bowl cream the mascarpone, coffee liqueur and 4 tbsp of sugar
3) Fold the whipping cream into the mascarpone cheese and set aside
4) Mix the coffee and dark rum. Dip lady fingers into coffee mixture and place in the bottom of the baking dish or spring form pan.
5) Spread some cream cheese mixture over the ladyfingers and dust with cocoa powder.
6) Dip some ladyfingers into coffee mixture and repeat step '5' again.
7) Cover and refrigerate tiramisu overnight.
8) Just before serving decorate it with some cocoa powder or fresh fruits.
I would to thank Chef Gertrude for her wonderful recipe.I found some many recipe out there using raw egg but I prefer to use heavy cream.
Note:This time I reduce the sugar because the ladyfinger was coated with sugar as well.I let my coffee cold down for hours before dipping the ladyfinger.The first time,I dipped ladyfingers in very hot coffee and it disengrated .Overall,this Tiramisu is really easy to make,no baking just assemble and whisking away!!..but must have right ingredients!!
