Tiramisu Cake

This recipe was a lot smaller than I thought. The original recipe calls for making a single layer of cake and then cutting it in half. I ended up doubling the amount of cake and stacking the two layers instead. This recipe also called for coffee liqueur...since it was Sunday, I could not purchase any. So I replaced the liqueur with freshly brewed vanilla biscotti coffee.

Happy Belated Birthday Brandon!! Eat some cake!
