I wanted to try something different and exotic for my husband's birthday this year without any elaborate decorations.When I was doing shopping at the grocery store, a pack of mascoporne cheese caught my attention and then decided to bake a Tiramisu cake.Since I want the cake to look regal, I used eggless vanilla sponge cake instead of lady fingers as base so that I can also decorate it.

Check out the  classic Egg free Tiramisu cake with Lady fingers
