again we bid our farewells

again we bid our farewells

Just for the TWDers who dropped by for this week's dose of Tiramisu Cake. I apologise for the lack of pictorial features, none in fact. Though I did try out the recipe and served it as a happy ending to my parmesan mustard pork chops and sage crusted potatos, my poor camera just wasn't around the capture the moment with me. It was ill again, had to send it to the doctors. *sigh*

On hindsight, the Tiramisu was spectacular, the yellow cake playing perfect host to the drunken spirited party of alcohols and adrenaline junkies (coffee!). The mascarpone filling, a perfect consistency that lived up to my expectations. For my version, I made it in clear acrylic cups that allowed the sloshing patterns of the drenched sponge and the biege fillings to shine through. Decorated with a bold dash of cocoa powder and plump strawberries.. these were all ready to take over the world. Well.. let's start from the boyfriend's stomach first. BINGO! he had TWO! hehe. Thanks Megan for choosing this fantastic recipe! Visit her blog for the recipe.

Now I've just got to figure out what to do with the remainder mascarpone cheese. Any suggestions?

How did you manage to have mascarpone left over! :)

How about Chocolate Mascarpone Brownies? I've had this recipe bookmarked forever, but never gotten around to it.

oh, too bad! leftover mascarpone is delicious with fresh berries, or with poached fruit. also good stirred into risotto at the very end.

I hate it when camera's have sick days....

How about trying my strawberry and white chocolate tiramisu to use up your leftover mascarpone??
