Making tiramisu - need help

HawtLeak | Feb 22, 2010 07:40 AM

Hi there,

I'm trying to make tiramisu cake for the first time. I've browsed many different recipes and some mention to use Bailey's, some use Rhum, some use any Coffee Liqueor, some mentions no alcoholic content at all.

So what's the difference if I use one or the other? Which one would produce the best tiramisu?

Plus, I figured I also need ladyfingers cookies... ummm never heard of that. Can I buy that at any local grocery store? mascarpone cheese too

and for unsweetened cocoa powder, can I substitue it with hot chocolate powder?
