tiramisu ‘wedding’ cake

A close family member wedded on the 24th of July2009. So the night before the special day, my sister and I stayed up making these tiramisu shot glasses aka the ‘wedding’ cake. It was topped with an edible  ‘thank you’ chocolate that I purchased from Cake Deco for $2.  Check them out as they are Australia’s largest baking retailer.

Making the chocolate moulds would have to be the trickiest part. That took a few hours alone. I had to pour in the dark chocolate first and refrigerate then pour the white chocolate mixture on top. You need super steady hands or else you won’t be able to read the message. But the end result is so worth the effort put in, especially when the bride-to-be is someone very special to my heart. Try out the recipe below. They really do look impressive and elegant for any kind of event you’re hosting.


RECIPE FOR TIRAMISU

Makes: 6 dessert glasses
Prep time: 20mins
Chill time: at least 6 hours

Ingredients

250g Sponge Fingers (Lady Fingers)
1 tablespoon cocoa powder, for dressing

For the cream mixture
1.5 tsp of boiled water mix with 1 tbsp of coffee
3 tbsp caster Sugar
250g mascarpone cheese
250ml thickened cream, whipped

For dipping the biscuits
1.5 tsp of boiled water mix with 1 tbsp of coffee
1 cup Milk


Method

1. To make the mascarpone cream mixture, beat sugar, mascarpone and cream with an electric beater. Once thickened, add the coffee flavouring and give it a final beat to coat evenly.

2. Dip the biscuits into the coffee milk mixture and lay it out on the tray. Put a dollop of cream mixture right into the bottom of each glass, then cut the biscuits so they fit inside. Put a layer of cream ontop and repeat this process 3 times for all 6 glasses.

3. Sieve through the cocoa powder as final dressing. Clean around the rim of the glass, glad wrap it and refrigerate overnight. Best eaten the day after.
