    I loved this recipe, as it is quick, easy and often, most of the ingredients necessary are in one's kitchen. <br/><br/>May I suggest using a ready-made angel food from a store with its own bakery? Sometimes the store will offer a brand name, pre-packed cake that isn't quite as tasty as one baked on site.<br/><br/>Never one to criticize a recipe, I'll simply offer a suggestion with regard to the cream filling. It is rather difficult to get the mixture to spread evenly on a wet cake, so I discovered that by filling a pastry tube, outlining the top of the cake, then forming a line of mixture down the middle of the cake, it was much easier to blend evenly with a butter knife or frosting tool. When it comes to the final coating of mixture on the top, I simply attached a star shaped cone and made pretty little stars, then sprinkled a final dusting of chocolate on top. <br/><br/>Nothing pretentious about this recipe. While true Tiramisu is delightful, not everyone lives within a good shopping distance of all the ingredients needed for genuine Tiramisu. <br/><br/>Thanks for sharing this recipe. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it in 'Cuisine at Home Weeknight Menu' issue. Yum!

    looks really yummy! i just added it to my favorites and really hope it turns out as good as the recipe's steps!


Hey there! I am the wife of my dh, Steve, to whom I've been married a very short 12yrs. I am also the SAHM of three boys (11yo and 4yo at home, 23yo on his own). My middle insists that you know he is #57 in the picture, the first player facing you. LOL I graduated from Ball State University with a BS in Pre-Professional Psychology, which I get use of here at home frequently. I enjoy entering local bakeoffs and contests, creating handmade cards and am active in my local MOPS group. I have a extensive collection of cookbooks, but have found that Zaar has taken care of my appetite for any hands on cookbooks. I just love to bake, especially for the high school football team here during the fall. It is my favorite time of the year......sweaters, bonfires, leaves, pumpkins, caramel apples, football, all the stuff about fall is fun! Thanks for checking out my "about me" page and I look forward to seeing you around on the boards. <a href=""><img border="0" src="" alt="web site hit tracking"></a><a href="">Staples Office</a> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="">
