Chocolate Tiramisu Torte : My delicious unfinished bussiness!


This is the second time for this cake. First time when my friends came to my house at January (well, a long time ago, haha). But at that time, I just baked the cake, and my friends took the cake home.
So, for me it feels like an unfinished business, ^ ^, I need to make it again, because my friends said that it’s delicious (and I didn’t have a chance to eat it >*<). This time, when my beloved friend come to visit, I make this cake as a welcome dessert, and well, her husband love this cake. So, this cake is a huge success! I make a little change in the recipe (as I always do, haha). First I make only half of the recipe, so the full recipe will be 20cm cake (just double the recipe) if you want to serve a lot of people ^ ^. Then I adjust the frosting a bit, to make it more controllable (well, I can’t find the double cream, so I use the whipping cream instead). But I find it delicious with a lot of mascarpone, you can’t go wrong ^ ^. After frosting it and refrigerate for 1 hour, it’s better to finish the cake at that day, or the frosting will be dry and crack, but I know that for the delicious cake, it’s an easy job, haha.
