My 1st Tiramisu

I have longed for trying to make my own Tiramisu. Finally, i got all the ingredients to start.

This is no fuss, super fast and easy. Just put in the fridge for 4 hours, it's firm and easy to cut and serve.

I don't really satisfy with this first attempt. I found the finger biscuits are not soggy enough, and it doesn't give me the taste of coffee. I think the main problem lays with the method i used. In order not to have a over-dip biscuits to become very soft, I "BRUSH" the coffee on the finger biscuits. I think that's why it didn't absorb well. The better way is to "DIP" half the finger biscuits into the coffee. *Important note*
