Here is a fun cake that I made for a birthday surprise!
The client wanted to surprise a friend on their birthday. They said the birthday recipient was a fan of tiramisu cake. I took that information and ran with it, but added a fun little twist to make a Tiramisu Cake!
A traditional tiramisu cake is a layered sheet cake. I tried to recreate that but in a layered tiered cake.
The cake base is a simple Vanilla Sponge cake. I then soaked the cake layers in an Espresso Sugar Syrup and topped them with a Mascarpone Brandy Whipped Frosting. Each layer also had a filling of Chocolate Chips. On top off the cake I added a few more chocolate chips for decoration.
I heard later that the cake was a hit. It both looked wonderful and tasted great!
