Reviews for White Chocolate-Strawberry Tiramisu
"Really good recipe, although I have to admit I didn't follow it exactly. I was in a pinch and didn't have time to go to store and hunt for things. Couldn't get lady fingers so I made a sponge cake and cut it up. Also, I forgot the Orange juice, oops. I also did not have mascarpone so I doubled the cream cheese and added some sour cream. I also did not fold any of my whipped cream into the cheese mixture, but I make my whipped cream with instant pudding mix to get different flavors and stabilize it so it doesn't melt. This might help those of you having trouble with "firming it up". I did however stir the strawberries right in, reserving some for garnish. Took it to church and it disappeared! I think this recipe has a lot of flexibility to it, which in my book is what makes a REALLY GOOD recipe. Would definitely like to try it as written though."
"Gobambookie-maybe try Grand Marnier?? Good recipe, went over well here. Am really glad to see polite, helpful discourse in these particular reviews. Too many on this site have been rude, extremely unintelligent, and downright vulgar. Bravo to the submitter AND reviewers:)"
"Anyone know if the OJ can be substituted with something alcoholic ? Like Kahlua in regular tiramisu."
"I followed recipe exactly except for the chocolate on top and it was wonderful!"
"Hey will it make a big change if you don't add orange juice."
"I plan on making this at my family reunion for a dessert contest. I do have one question. As far as I'm understanding; in your dish you put in cheese mix then ladyfingers & strawberries then the rest of the cheese mix then rest of the ladyfingers & strawberries. Or do you put all ladyfingers & strawberries in the center?To me it makes sense to just mix the cheese mix all at one time instead dividing it like someone else said. Does anyone know if it makes a difference?"
"This is a great recipe! Easy to put together and just the right amount of sweetness. I may add blueberries to the layers for the 4th of July."
"I made this recipe for a friends birthday cake. I was very simple to make for a basic baker like myself. It definitely looked and tasted like it came from a store. My girlfriends LOVE it. I also added some crushed strawberries to the icing top layer to make a strawberry cream... that was spectacular... must try that!!!!! I didn't have a problem with the cream being too soft. After refrigerated for a day it stiffened well."
"Made this for my 21st birthday it was a huge success"
"I love this recipe but I am having trouble getting it to firm up. I have made it twice and whipped my cream longer and added more of the mascapone cream but it doesn't get firm. its great as a trifle cake and the taste is great. Any suggestions?"
"That's ok! Communication is how we learn :)"
"Gotcha! I wished it would have explained that a little better! I'm not a daily baker!! :) The way I made it came out great though! Yummy!"
"2 cups heavy cream, whipped to soft peaks should give you about 4 cups whipped cream.The first bullets says to Fold in 2 cups whipped cream. - that should leave with about 2 more cups of whipped cream to fold into the final step."
"In response to sstetzel's reply...there is no "remaining" whipped cream. In the 1st bullet section of directions it says to fold in the 2 cups whipped cream and that's all the recipe calls for. Here's what I did... I did what it says in 1st bullet of directions, using the 1/2 cup conf. sugar plus a bit more (maybe tablespoon). I deleted 1st sentence in 3rd bullet of directions and spread the remaining cream/cream cheese mixture on top of lady fingers and finished off with reminaining strawberries, added chocolate syrup drizzle... Yum!"
"You're also adding the remaining unsweetened whipped cream to the mixture, that would tone the sweetness down."
"There is a problem with this recipe. Had to read it several times. It shows using the whipping cream in the very beginning of the recipe and then in the 3 bullet of directions shows using "remaining" whipping cream. It also says to mix the remaining cream cheese mixture with confectioner's sugar when you have already put confectioner's sugar in it. Some of the cream mixture was already used so you would have less of the mixture and be adding more sugar to it???? Wouldn't that make it extra sweet?? I'm trying it with just the mixing entire ingredient list with instructions in 1st bullet and using that as my "cream" filling. Will respond as to what happens..."
"Love this dessert. But I am having a problem with it getting firm enough. It makes a great triffle cake. The first time I added more of the mascapone cheese and thought maybe I didn't whip the whipping cream long enough. The second time I used the exact amount the recipe calls for and whipped the cream longer but still no change. Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong? I really love the flavor of this dessert and don't want to give up on it. Help!!!"
"Absolutely spectacular!!! What a delightful version without the distasteful coffee flavor!"
"This was wonderful. Everyone loved it!"
"incredible version of the classic tiramisu, is absolutly amazing. I´ll make it as a present, next week for a birthday party"
