Yesterday we got married! (YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Today we hosted a birthday dinner for our friend Loretta. We had lasagna for dinner and I'd been told that Loretta likes tiramisu. Now, I've never made tiramisu, and it ended up being a pretty busy weekend, so I decided to make a tiramisu inspired cake!
It was chocolate cake moistened with a coffee syrup. The filling was tiramisu's cream that is made with marscapone. (I added orange extract for an extra zing.) It was frosted with orange flavored seven minute frosting. Then I dipped lady fingers in the coffee syrup and lined the perimeter of the cake with them. To finish, I shaved dark chocolate with the microplane for a garnish.
Everyone really seemed to enjoy dessert, so it went fabulous as far as I'm concerned! :)
What a great weekend! HOORAY
