Layer Cake de Tiramisú

Deliciosa Layer Cake de Tiramisú con sorpresa en el interior

If they asked me what I like to cook the most, I would say Layer Cakes. Whatever the flavour is or the number of layers; I love layer cakes. I enjoy starting with a bunch of sponge cakes and transform them into a beautiful piece of dessert.

Well, the other day I made a mistake: I asked my boyfriend for help so I could record the process of decorating and he asked me in return to choose the flavour.

I gave him several flavour options but he had an idea in mind. He wanted a Tiramisu but also a layer cake and a layer cake with tiramisu flavour wasn’t an option. So, basically, I had to make a Tiramisu with a layer cake wrapper.

As you may imagine, it’s a bomb but it’s so delicious. So the invention was a complete success.

Extra Tip: let the cake cool completely before cutting it. I couldn’t wait so the center drowned a little bit as I cut it.
