This cake gets its name partly because of the booze in it, but mostly because it looks like a slightly drunk person put the layers together. Despite my inability to make a perfect layer cake, I still really wanted to share this recipe with you. I was so happy with the way the flavour turned out, it tasted exactly as I hoped – just like a tiramisu, but in giant cake form!

The cake consists of really moist coffee sponge, that’s brushed with a coffee and alcohol glaze and filled with lashings of mascarpone cream, then dusted with cocoa powder. If you love tiramisu/ or love someone that loves tiramisu, you should definitely make this cake!

Mini Strawberries and Cream Layer Cakes for two

Mini Strawberries and Cream Layer Cakes | Blueberry Kitchen

Vanilla sponge cake filled with chantilly cream and fresh strawberries ~

These mini layer cakes are perfectly proportioned for two and are pretty easy and quick to make (they also taste totally delicious!) You start off with a simple vanilla sponge recipe cooked in a one layer cake tin. Then simply cut the sponge into circles (I used the bottom of a shot glass) and fill with freshly whipped vanilla cream and sliced strawberries. Any left over bits of sponge could be used to make mini trifles (recipe coming soon!)
