Thank you to Dixie Crystals for sponsoring this Tiramisu Cake post. Opinions are my own. We’ve taken all the flavors from the classic Italian dessert Tiramisu and transformed it into cake form.
If you love Tiramisu then chances are you’ll love this cake version. Made with ERMINE FROSTING and our HOMEMADE AMARETTO. This Tiramisu Layer Cake starts with a light and airy sponge cake that’s filled with a mascarpone filling and finally frosted with Ermine frosting. It’s finished with a liberal dusting of cocoa powder. While it does take several steps to make, we think the pay off is worth it.
WHAT IS TIRAMISU?
