Press the ice-cream all around the bottom and the sides of the vessel.

Make the layer at the bottom quite thick.

Pick up the soaked biscuits and arrange them thickly and radially on the ice-cream layer, covering the whole surface.

Step 5: Decorating the Ice-cream Cake

After a few hours remove the cake.

Place it upside-down on the serving dish.

With a warm sponge go over the vessel. this will losen the ice cream cake from the form onto the plate. Flatten out the sides and the top of the cake if uneven with a spatula or a butter knife.

Decorate with whipped cream making little florets all around the circumference. Place the candied cherries on the whipped cream florettes.

Add on the chocolate scraps in the center

Step 6: Finally

This looks quite tasty. I have not made Tiramisu cake with lady fingers before. Are they soft like a sponge cake?

crystalheart (author)sunshiine2015-09-09

No the lady finger biscuits are brittle sponge when dry. however when you soak it they become soft spongy-like a sponge cake. You could actually substitute using a sponge cake. Thanks for looking thru the recipe.

Is it possible to substitute the coffee for something else? I ask mostly because I dislike coffee(and have a minor caffeine allergy...) but these cakes look so tasty... Even if it isn't possible I may have to make this cake for a game night soon, it looks great!

crystalheart (author)ceera2015-08-25

Maybe you could then just leave out the coffee. Especially if you are allergic...fingers away from coffee!! Do post foots and let us know how you substituted coffee. thanks

Hi ceera,

I haven't tried without coffee but maybe dark drinking chocolate should work. do not over sweeten the chocolate because i think the slight bitterness of coffee with he tardiness of cherry go along very well. I would suggest first making a small portion with chocolate-tasting it, if OK then proceed making the whole cake.
