Tiramisu - A Daring Baker's Challenge

This month has been so busy and I  completely forgot about the Daring Baker's Challenge until today when I was checking my email etc. and I noticed the date and realized the Daring Baker's Challenge had to be posted!  I didn't want to miss the deadline, so I scrambled.... and raced into the kitchen to get started.  After reading comments from my fellow Daring Bakers like " Allow 3 days to create this"  I panicked .... YIKES!!!!!  Needless to say, I completed it.  When the instructions said to leave it in the refrigerator overnight, I left it in for only for a few hours, so I am sure that the Mascarpone  cheese would have firmed up more, although I must say I thought it was fine.   It IS possible to make this in one day! I did have help from my step-daughter Meredith ....Thank you Meredith!!!!!!   
I am going to send you over to Aparna or Deeba for all the details of the recipe because it is midnight and I'm tired....Tomorrow we will taste it...

By the way, I had a stencil of a snowflake so I sprinkled the Cocoa on it and voila!  It worked out quite well.

The February 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen and Deeba of Passionate About BakingThey chose Tiramisu as the challenge for the month. Their challenge recipe is based on recipes from The Washington Post, Cordon Bleu at Home and Baking Obsession.
Thanks Aparna and Deeba!

The challenge involved making all the following:
A. Tiramisu (includes zabaglione & vanilla pastry cream)
B. Mascarpone Cheese and
C. Ladyfinger/ Savoiardi Biscuits

Sweet dreams

Until we bake again....
