According to Kim, "tiramisu" is my favorite word and it's one that I would say at least once a day. I have to admit, the word does feel good in my mouth and the cake is one of my favorite as well. :) The last time I made this was with Velina when I was in Austin last weekend and now I have a chance to make another one for Ko Haniel's birthday.

I once again used my favorite tiramisu recipe from Joy of Baking, which uses a custard based cream instead of using whipped cream. I liked the custard-based tiramisu because I think that custard has less fat than whipped cream and it also has more textured flavor. After lots of times making this dessert, I've made very minor changes to the recipe to make it "healthier" for my personal psychological benefit (it means that it's okay to eat more). I highly recommend this recipe for you to try if you're a big fan of tiramisu and if you're a big fan of rum. :)

Lately I've been reminded of a saying: be slow to speak, quick to listen, and slow to become angry. I just thought to share it with you all. :)
