The Cake Slice Bakers January Challenge: Tiramisu Cake

When we voted last month for the Tiramisu cake at first I wasn't really excited as I am not a huge coffee lover. I know I'm strange it's okay. Then later I thought about it and thought it would be perfect as my Mother-in-law's birthday was coming up and she loves coffee, see it all works itself out.

I have to be honest with you though I had a bite of this and thought it was awful, (I made a mini one to taste with the left over ingredients) so much so that I didn't serve it for her birthday. The favors were just off, and it tasted super bitter even though I followed each step exactly. I thought that I might try it again someday, but probably not.

If you would like the recipe please let me know and I will attach it.


  1. Well it looks good at least! :) Sarah loves Tiramisu. I think it's okay. I'm not a big coffee lover either. I do drink 1/2 cup (sometimes 1 cup on weekends) before work in the morning because Jim makes it, but if he weren't there to make it, I wouldn't make it and wouldn't miss it at all.

    Your pictures are nice.
    Hope you've had a good week and that you have a wonderful weekend. Did the big snows come your way?


  2. Sorry to hear you didn't like the cake. Coffee can taste very bitter if you're not a fan of it. Looks delicious to me

  3. Your cakes looks wonderful! Sorry to hear that you did not like this cake. I had to skip this months bake, but I love coffee, so I'll probably make this soon.

  4. I actually only followed the Genoise recipe and went with the more traditional recipe filling that the "Cake Boss" uses. Its soooooo good. I even made that recipe first then the following weekend made our Cake Slice recipe. I had a gutt feeling about all the steps the Cake Slice recipe was calling for with the mascarpone cheese. So I stuck with Buddy Valastro's recipe on that part, you shold try it its awesome!

  5. While you may not have liked the cake, your cake look beautiful!

  6. I have to agree, not happy with this one. Better luck next month! Your cake is pretty though.


Thanks for stopping by!
