LD is studying in perugia, italy... for 6wks,
then sticking around europe for the rest of the summer ! (jealous...)
here's to a wonderful, fulfilling time abroad.
a cake inspired by the classic italian dessert, tiramisu.
beige velvet cake, espresso-whiskey syrup,
vanilla-mascarpone cream, chopped dark chocolate, mocha frosting.
basically the cake recipe is my red velvet except w/o the food dye.
in making this cake i discovered the JOY that is mascarpone.
it's like cream cheese... but richer! (sinful..)
next time i might choose a lighter, fluffier, sponge-cake-esque base
buon appetito :)
goodbye, larry david! we will miss you dearly.
