Once the first piece was cut, this cake lasted all of five minutes at the last family get together. Any recommendations? Sure. As others have said, yes, double the amounts of coffee and hootch. And personally, I liked to use a 50/50 blend of Kahlua and Bailey's. Next, I used 8" pans for higher layers. I then baked the cake in 2 pans, not three (1 plain and 1 with the coffee mixture), so that when I split each layer in half, I wound up with 4 alternating layers. Lastly, I doubled the amount of filling. Yup. Doubled it. That really brings out the tiramisu-ish taste. And please, please, don't substitute cream cheese for the mascarpone. Yes, it costs more, but the flavor is SO worth it!
