I was disappointed the layers were thin, didn't rise more. But overall my guests were ready to fight for the leftovers! This is a keeper.

The cake and coffee syrup are amazing. I had trouble with the mascarpone frosting having too much of a whipped cream consistency. I would have liked it thicker (more like a cream cheese frosting). Overall a beautiful and delicious cake though. Read my full review at: http://bit.ly/rySjAi

If you need tiramisu in a cake shape, this might be worth the effort. The cake was dense & moist & it had a tiramisu flavor...everyone said they enjoyed it. for the recipe though...I ended up with way too much frosting, had trouble getting the coffee syrup down into the cake so I ended up using the turkey injector (worked great!) and if I make it again, would probably let the layers set up with the frosting on top of them individually before putting them together because it oozed out and after sitting in the fridge, the cake had 2 bulging rings around it. Also, I would add some chocolate curls on top instead of the berries and maybe chocolate shreds or some cocoa powder in between the layers to give it a little extra tiramisu-ish flavor..

This is a keeper.. The first time I made it I wasn't happy with the lack of coffee flavor . The second time I made the coffee syrup and added expresso powder .I made the cake put the coffee over the layers and put it in the fridge for 24hrs (covering it of course) 100% better.,

While this cake is good, it does not taste like tiramisu or have the light consistency of tiramisu. We found the almond overpowered the vanilla & coffee. Next time, I'd omit the almond altogether (and have never had tiramisu that tasted like almond!). The cake was moist & dense. Be sure to use all of the coffee mixture (divide into 3 equal parts & use 1/3 on top of each layer).

I made this cake for my husband's birthday. He loves tiramisu, and I wanted to make a cake for something different. Unfortunately it did not turn out well at all. It ended up soggy, and the flavor was not similar to tiramisu at all.

Made this for Christmas dessert for a group of tiramisu lovers, and it was a hit! Next time I will "spoon" on more coffee/brandy mixture.
