Excellent and quick! I've never made a dessert before, so this was my way to get a toe in the pool before diving in. It's cheap, it's easy, and it's easy to get all the ingredients. I used sugar-free syrup and cool whip, so it was even fairly low-cal. As others have mentioned, it's not classic tiramisu, but given that it cost less than $8 for all the ingredients and took less than 15 minutes to prep, AND it could be done by someone who had to ask his Mom what it meant to "fold" the whipped cream in, it's a great idea. My modifications: I ended up using 8 oz of whipped cream instead of 12 as specified, and I think that hurt the filling a bit. I added a bit more whipped cream as a topping and it really leavened out the heaviness of the faux-mascarpone. I also added a glug of Kaluha to the coffee/syrup mix, and will try again later by adding a bit of rum as well. It could use some bite. Finally, it tasted MUCH better after sitting in the fridge for 1 hour than it did after sitting for 15 minutes. I think it gets better as the cream and ladyfingers blend a bit and the mixes soak in.
