Time to Assemble the Cake!

As can be seen in my picture, my tiramisu cream is quite watery and not smooth as I think I over-whipped the cream XD

3. Lay the second layer on top of it and repeat Steps 1 and 2. Do this for the last layer of cake as well.

4. Chill it in the fridge for about 5-10 minutes first then apply the rest of the tiramisu cream on top and along the sides of the cake.

Note the wet and grainy cream again =(

Comments: 

I am quite pleased with this cake except for the part where I over-whipped the tiramisu cream! =( Though the taste of the cake is not really as affected by the texture, the appearance of the cake is really ugly. I hope to make a prettier one the next time! Otherwise, my family commented that it indeed tastes like tiramisu. Haha.
