Tiramisu Layer Cake

Today I made a Tiramisu Layer Cake. I was inspired again by my favorite Italian restaurant as well as by a cupcake recipe I tasted, made by my classmate.

I found the recipe online. It called for a white box cake mix, which saved a lot of time. I made three layers, but in the layer that I was going to put in the middle, I added a teaspoon of instant coffee.The filling and frosting were also very easy to make, using simple ingredients such as heavy cream, confectioners sugar and coffee liqueur.

This recipe was more complicated than I am used to, but it wasn't too hard. When it was finished, it didn't taste too sweet, which was a refreshing change for the summer weather. I sprinkled cocoa powder over the top and garnished the edges with raspberries, although the recipe called for chocolate shavings. I definitely recommend this recipe!

You'll find it here.
