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 :D
 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 -  I used cake mix  which makes it super easy,
 may also make this with any Sponge Cake.

* Top this with the coffee layered cake , poke holes in this cake (as done with the first layer) , pour little hot coffee over and spread the rest of the filling over this second layer.

Do not pour more hot Coffee to the cake as then it may get too soft to frost the same.
