I've made this twice. The first time, I used Trader Joe's lady fingers and it was excellent. The second time, I couldn't get the Trader Joe's kind so I used a different brand of lady fingers, which were much crispier and it wasn't as moist as the first time. I suggest doubling or even tripling the amount of coffee/rum mixture to really get the lady fingers soaked. I found it easier to put the first layer of lady fingers in the dish, then pour the coffee mixture over them, then do the marscapone and cream, then the next layer of lady fingers and again, pour the coffee over them. It kind of drenches the cream layers in the middle, which isn't a bad thing. It still looks pretty, but is much creamier. Also, definitely let it sit in the fridge overnight - it's much better after a day.
