It’s been so long since last time I made Tiramisu. Too long that I had no idea that Tiramisu could be presented as a cake. Now since I have to make cakes every now and then because of my very celebratory children, I had to convert a conventional Tiramisu into a cake. Just for their approval.
I know. Ganache? Where? Because all you can see is a chocolate blanket, or mudslide, or A MESS.
This chocolate devil’s food cake with espresso swiss meringue buttercream is probably one of my best. Not only the decoration, which I admit looks professional and elegant. But the taste is OH-MY-GODLY flavourful. The espresso buttercream is a total to-die-for. I was licking everywhere when frosting the cake.
I’m a sucker for anything hazelnut-y. Meaning I might not be very crazy about hazelnut as nut, but I always have a hard time resisting a bar of hazelnut chocolate, a cup of hazelnut latte, a slice of hazelnut cake…
