A few weeks ago a friend asked me to make her a birthday treat but wanted me to use her favorite liquor, Patron Tequila XO Cafe. We couldn't decide what would be the best way to incorporate this into a dessert. Perhaps Tequila chocolate cake, or Tequila infused frosting...then Stephane came up with the winner: Tiramisu! I've never made Tiramisu before, so I knew this was going to be a challenge. I started with making the lady finger cake from scratch, and while that was cooking, I whipped up the coffee syrup using premo espresso along with the cafe Tequila. While the lady fingers were cooling, I worked on the creamy marscapone filling. Once everything was ready, I dutifully soak the lady fingers in the coffee syrup and start assembling the Tiramisu. It looked lovely once it was done! Now just to hear about the taste...
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
