Tirimisu for Jane
Made another Tirimisu on Monday evening. This is a tried and tested recipe courtesy of Vi, a very talented Romanian lady residing in the US. Vi is such a whiz with baking and cooking and she makes the most incredible flowers & animals out of fondant. Oh yes, Vi makes her own cheeses & sausages too! It is such a privilege to know Vi.
Back to the Tirimisu. I decided to make one for Jane as I will go pass her home, on my way for kickboxing lessons on Tuesday evening. I have known Jane for many years now. We were colleagues before, and then we were coursemates in business school and now, though we work in different organizations, we keep in contact by emails and SMSes and eating binges with some other friends. Sure we have our occasional quibbles over certain issues but then that’s that. No grudges and our friendship is as good as new!
I really did a lousy job of decorating the cake as I had less than 40 minutes from between reaching home from work and then zooming off for classes. After a dusting of cocoa powder onto the top of the cake, I quickly whipped-up a batch of fresh cream to plaster the lady's fingers to the sides and then hid the cut ends with a gold ribbon. Off I go to deliver the cake.
Cheers Jane, Tirimisu with a double dose of Kahlua Rum & Bailey’s Irish Cream. **Hic**
