This turned out quite nicely, although I altered a few of the quantities. I found that there wasn't nearly enough cream mixture, so made 1 1/2 quantities of that. Next time I wouldn't worry about the cream cheese, but would use extra mascarpone instead. A tip from a first-timer: don't dunk the ladyfingers, just dip them slightly! My tiramisu ended up with liquid coffee pooled at the bottom of the dish. Still tasted great, though.
