Tiramisu Cake

A “Bundle of Joy” my gift from Santa is here by my side now, named her Tania Maria.
of-course not easy as I always take time to get adapted to the new changes in life, and time is flying in jet speed for me,  no matter how much ever I plan and prepare myself, an initial fighting phase is always there and this is one among the many things I am yet to learn to manage.
Anyways am enjoying it though I miss cooking, which is therapeutics for me, a stress relieving exercise too 😦

Have a very easy Tiramisu Cake recipe, coincidentally a sweet dish as the first post this New year, after the break 😀
 Made this for Soccer man’s Birthday.
He being a fan of Tiramisu said he loved it.

I am sure You’ll not be disappointed if you try making this,  if you are a fan of Coffee.
Recipe adapted from Allrecipes.com –  I used cake mix  which makes it super easy,
 may also make this with any Sponge Cake.
