    Hi Victoria,

    This is definitely an innovative way to make Tiramisu. Very interesting!

    不放Ovalette 可以吗?

    • Victoria Bakes (March 11, 2015)

      Hey Daisy,嗯。。。这么说吧。。。。可以不放,不过不保证蛋糕会一样柔软哟

    Even the Italians will give you thumbs up on this \”pick me up\” of yours. I love the even layers of the cake. Wish I could have a slice. Victoria you never cease to amaze me.

    我啊现在是不到半夜都不会出现了, 时间不够用啊!
    亲亲的千层蛋糕真是越做越勁了, 安定后可以考虑在那儿开店了!

    hii your cake looks beautiful and yummy! Would like to ask if i want to steam in 8\” cake pan how many times should i multiply the recipe?

    • Victoria Bakes (January 16, 2016)

      Hi, I haven\’t tried if this works, but I will use a 7-8 eggs recipe. I come to this conclusion as this is a 4 egg in a 6 inch pan, I have done 6 eggs in 7 inch. So I deduce a 7 or 8 should be fine (I will be cowboy to do an 8 so I can get a tall cake, plus you rather have enough batter to play with as compared to a mid-level height cake) No guarantee ok 🙂 the worst situation that can happen is you will have difficult squeezing in the last layer. Let me know how this pans out for you

    Hi Victoria,

    Can I use 10ml of hot water to dissolve the cocoa powder and add in 15ml of Kahlua to the cocoa mixture?

    Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Cheers from Melbourne, Australia

      Hi Ann Gee, technically it sounds right. A better way of ensuring u got it right, is just to ensure the consistency of the mix is like thick honey.

  • mola (April 12, 2017)

    How can I substitute ovalette?

  • Ann-Gee Lee Wilson (August 5, 2017)

    Hi Victoria,

    I made this today and it turned out beautifully with perfect layers. However, the texture of the cake is nothing like what a cake should be. It turned out like ‘kuih’ texture. I followed the recipe to a T. Any idea what could possibly have gone wrong? I was so disappointed. After all the time and effort making it, I had to bin it in the end 🙁
