{Tiramisu} by the Cake Boss

Here's Tiramisu cake by Cake Boss :

1 C brewed espresso
1 C sugar
1/4 C + 1 T coffee liqueur
4 egg yolks
1 pound Mascarpone Cheese
2 T sweet Marsala
1 C heavy cream
40 lady fingers (2 packages)
1/4 C cocoa powder

A mixture: Bring to simmer 1 C Espresso, 1/2 C sugar and 1/4 C coffee liqueur.  Whisk for 3-4 minutes.
B mixture: Mix egg yolk, Mascarpone cheese, Marsala, 1/2 C sugar and 1 T coffee liquor for 7 minutes.  (Medium speed).
C mixture: Whip heavy cream in separate bowl until stiff peaks form. (Medium to High speed)
D.Fold C cream into B mixture.

To assemble:
Dip and (soak) lady fingers in A mixture.
Arrange a layer of lady fingers in the bottom of container. 
Spoon a layer of D mixture over the lady fingers.
Dust the tiramisu with cocoa powder.
Cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for couple hours

Just for the presentation, I arrange the lady fingers vertically instead of in the bottom of container.  Tiramisu tastes better when lady fingers are soaked with the coffee mixture.

To do this dainty presentation, I made a ring from plastic sleeve, arrange the lady fingers (un-soaked) inside the ring, freeze it, then spoon the cream mixture into the center.  Dust with cocoa powder.  I didn't use coffee mixture at all.
