TWD: Tiramisu is so money


Tiramisu…is a da bomb!


Yup.  I’m going there.  Dorie was right.  Tiramisu was everywhere in the 90s (and still makes a respectable showing).  I myself went through an 18 month period when I ordered it every time it was on the menu.  Then, and I am sorry to admit this is the honest truth, it randomly occurred to me one day that I prefer about a million other desserts, especially ones that up the chocolate quotient.  Tiramisu was my favorite dessert…not!  Either I was just sucked into the hype or had experienced a tiramisu overload – both are entirely possible.  It wasn’t as bad as the time my friend and I ate an entire bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos while watching Valley Girl and pining for our own Randy (Nicholas Cage).  I still can’t stand the sight or smell of those.  But, I haven’t ordered tiramisu in probably 15 years.

I was stoked when one of my favorite bloggers, Megan of My Baking Adventures, chose the Tiramisu Cake this week. Coffee, cake, cream…sweet. I made half the recipe in a 6 inch springform. Next time I need to use two separate pans – my layering/cutting skills are hella bad. I did not halve the syrup or the filling/frosting. As if.


ignore the slope…

Since we are going back to the 90s with this one, I have decided my cake is an ode to the style and spirit of grunge.  I scoff at your perfectly flat and frosted cakes.  Cobain lives!

PS  the cake was dope.  We ate it in like 10 seconds.

Peace out, dawg.

  1. Love the 90s references! 🙂 Woo Grunge!!!

  2. Valley Girl was one of my favorite movies. That was when Nic Cage was cool – and how come Deborah Foreman never made it big?

    So glad you loved the cake – and I’d be A LOT happier right now if my computer hadn’t crashed this morning………

  12. Great post, Kelly. I remember Valley Girl!! My friends and I were big on the Doritos, too. Unfortunately, I still like them. :o) The cake was good, but I wouldn’t say it was a favorite. Nice job, though. It looks great!

  13. Love it! Makes me proud to have grown up in the 90s 😉

  14. Sloping, poor cutting skills — no worries, it’s all good. I am so glad that this tiramisu cake was all that for you. I had to miss this week, but clearly need to do a rewind based on the reviews I’ve read of this! Your cake looks delicious!

  15. You want to know how much I loved Valley Girl. My girlfriend and I went out and bought every song we could get our hands on, Plim Souls,… etc. We made the soundtrack. It was caught up in a law suit so it wasnt released til years later. Which I have that now too. No Doritos though. But there was a total tiramisu fad!

    I love that comment, its dope. My husband and I call our chocolate crack.

  16. The real soundtrack was caught up in litigation… ha ha not ours
