Tiramisu Cake

April 5, 2009


~ Mary ~

This recipe was used for Sean’s and Wanda’s wedding cake and most recently a birthday cake for Jim (a close family friend).

 Yum! Look at those layers of Kahlua and coffee and chocolate and cream cheese Marsala frosting.  I figured if Jim could remember a cake for 13 years and remind me every year therein the poor boy earned his own damn cake.  I just halved the recipe and made four 8” round layers.  The cute ribbon wrapping idea came from Sky High Cakes.

How many times the recipe was made for the wedding cake is a mystery.  It looks like I must’ve made it a BAZILLION times.  Wanda chose it from Bon Appetite magazine.  Dig this old photo and all that foliage.






Sorry about the resolution – were there digital cameras in 1996? 

Oh look here’s SFB at the top of the cake.

    That’s THE most beautiful cake I’ve ever seen. It ranks right up there with Sean and Wanda’s wedding cake and your peanut butter/chocolate/peanut-brittle masterpiece!

    By the by, Wanda and I were just reminiscing about her wedding cake with SFB on top, and how hysterically funny we thought it was.

    Beautiful cake–you are truly a talented baker. I went to the recipe and saw that a lot of people had trouble with the frosting being runny and many also suggested using more soaking syrup. Did you make it as is and would you recommend any changes?

      Woe – you’re asking me to remember something ….from a year ago. That’s a tough one! I don’t recollect having any problem with the frosting, but if I did I probably just added more whipped cream cheese and or powdered sugar. I pulled out my printed copy and all my notes say is that a half recipe of the cake batter worked well for the three 8″ cake pans I used and it came out to about 1 1/2 pounds of batter per pan. The soaking syrup – I did a third of the recipe and for some reason remember having enough to brush BOTH sides of EACH layer – YUM! That soaking syrup is definitely a highlight to this cake and I would whole heartedly recommend brushing both sides of each layer with its goodness! This truly is a stunning cake, but more importantly it’s SOOOOO DELICIOUS! I do hope you give it a go. ~Mary

    I’ve never seen so many mouth watering layers in a cake! I have traditionally been a fan of the quick and easy Tiramisu Recipe
    …but I am going to become more adventurous after seeing your work!
