The taste was fabulous, but I'm not sure I did the layering right, (I was confused in step 11 about "repeat process") because I only drizzled the coffee mixture over the lady fingers, but it ended up dissolving most of the cheese mixture, leaving a syrupy bottom. Chilling/freezing never resolidified it. However, despite this it was still super tasty.
