I don't know about brandy, but do you have Bailey's Irish Cream? It taste absolutely splendid with that too.

:lol: :lol: I have Baileys. Means I can put all Baileys substituting all liquor & rum with Baileys? 120ml liquor + 50 l rum = 170ml Baileys?

Yep. That was what I did. Tasted delicious, even more so if you don't like strong liquor taste.

waw... good news again.

Sally may your slice of heaven last forever :lol:

For tiramisu... I always use a square plastic container that is exactly the size of an aluminum tray.

But, when I cut the corner ... I pick the piece from inside out. Meaning insert the spatula in the cut and push toward the side. My corners always come out in one piece.

Alannia, Linda is right, use all Bailey's. It taste even better. I like to add a little rum because has that alcohol bite, yet is very smooth.

Everyone is raving about this great tiramisu recipe and so many have baked it. My question is, do you beautiful ladies here use off-the-shelf (if there is) lady's fingers, or do you bake it from scratch? So far, there is no mention and I am wondering where I can get them from. TIA.

Vivien,

When I have time I bake the cake (Lady Fingers) but I don't bake them individualy, I make a sheet. In fact 2.
Here is a recipe by Sally aka. dewitan
http://www.kitchencapers.net/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=5643
But most of the time I buy them off the shelf, it's easy and handy when needed in the short run.

My guess the girls also used off the shelf and I am sure you find them in the local stores. Hope the girls can help to tell you where.

Hi vivien,

I did not bake the sponge and bought the lady fingers from Cold Storage... so far can only find them in cold storage...

Cheers

Vivien

Vi's correct. I've always used the off-the-shelf lady fingers. I too can only find lady fingers in Cold Storage, Market Place and Jasons, but then again they are run by the same management. So far I've tried the 2 brands. Unfortunately I can't remember the spelling. One starts with B and the other V. Personally I prefer the V brand. Some how I find the lady fingers soak up the syrup well and become soft like sponge cake, yet not soggy.

Of course you can skip.

Roasting makes the lady fingers more delicious... on the toasty way.
But don't bother with it. In fact I don't do it anymore.

Great job, Jessica... my friends say the same thing... that my tiramisu is better then the one outside.
I get a lot of orders.
