Special Tiramisu Cake

Yesterday was a super great day for me. We went celebrate a friend's birthday at the karaoke nearby and we sang and sang for 4 hours....LOL!! So much fun, that time passed really fast!
Actually we had an early celebration with her, which supposed today is her exact day. Hopefully she has a great time, and there are more birthdays coming soon. Oh, I can't wait for the rest to come...;p
As usual, I volunteered to bake the birthday lady a cake. As her husband suggested a tiramisu, so it solve my problem to search and think what cake to bake. So tiramisu is it!!

This friend of mine love roses so much. So at the last minute, I just made 3 small roses with fondant to deco the top. She actually ate the rose..haha! Oh dear, that was too sweet for her...;p I wanted to make this cake alittle special, so I decorated it differently where usually tiramisu dont't serve that way. See below for the arrangement for the sponge cake.

Recipe for the sponge (8" round pan):
(Chocolate)
3 egg yolks
10g sugar
40g milk
23g corn oil
50g cake flour
10g corn flour
2 tbsps cocoa powder
3 egg whites
30g sugar

3 egg yolks
10g sugar
40g milk
23g corn oil
50g cake flour
10g corn flour
2 tbsps ground hazelnut
3 egg whites
30g sugar

Method:
~ Beat egg yolks and 10g sugar till well mix, then add in oil and milk. Stir well.
~ Add in flour mixture then cocoa powder and mix well. Set aside.
~ Whisk egg whites with 30g sugar till soft peak forms.
~ Fold into egg yolk batter slowly and pour into 7" round pan (with parchment paper).
~ Bake at 180'C preheated oven for 20 minutes or till cook.
~ Remove from pan immediately and let cool.

** Do the same for the Hazelnut sponge.
** Then cut and arranged like the above pictures.

Recipe for the cream:
1/2 cup double cream (whipped)
250g cream cheese
250g mascarpone cheese
60g sugar
2 egg yolks
2-3 tsps coffee paste
1 tbsp Rum

~ Cream both cheeses first then add the rest of the ingredients and beat until well mix. Then the cream is ready to use.
~ Spread the cream on each layer of the cake.
~ Lastly spread the cheese cream all over the cake and drip some coffee paste on top of the cake and make some swirl pattern.
~ Chill the cake at least 4 hours before serving.

** For the almond Caramel, you can refer to my older post here.



Happy Birthday Friend!!!
