While Chasing Kids

The price of my favorite Whole Foods cake, Tiramisu, has been raised again.  (No wonder they call that awful place “Whole Paycheck”…).  So, for my husband’s birthday I decided to bake my own to make the budget and not hesitate about the portion sizes.

I tried to take a photo of the cake before it was destroyed maliciously… alas, this is all I was left to work with…

Instead of lady fingers I baked a huge pound cake, adopted from Allrecipes method.  The filling came from my beloved Williams-Sonoma Italian Favorites.
