Christmas Fruit Tiramisu Cake

Christmas Fruit Tiramisu Cake

I made this gorgeous and delicious cake using a readymade chiffon cake and storebought jam to keep it simple!

Ingredients

Your favorite chiffon cake
20cmx1
Mascarpone cheese
250 g
Heavy cream
200ml
Egg yolk
2
Granulated sugar
90g
Rum
1 tablespoon
Strawberry jam
130 g
Wild blueberry jam
130g
Mango jam
130 g
Your favorite fruit (for decoration)
to taste
Strawberries, blueberries, oranges, kiwi etc.
Apricot glaze
to taste

Steps

1. Making the cardboard stand: Cut out a circle from thick paper the same size as the cake pan, cover it with aluminum foil, and then you can get to work! You will be able to move the cake smoothly.
2. Making the chiffon cake container: Stick a knife into the cake about 1.5~2 cm from the edge, and cut out the insides. Slice the removed portion, and place underneath the other piece.
3. Making the tiramisu cream: add the mascarpone to a bowl, mix well with whipped cream, and then add in granulated sugar, egg yolks, and rum in that order.
4. Whip the cream in a separate bowl until soft peaks form, add to the bowl from step 2,and thoroughly mix with a rubber spatula.
5. Pour the cream, blueberry jam, cream, mango jam, cream, and strawberry jam into the chiffon cake in that order. (Cut the top part of the chiffon cake depending on the amount of jam used.) Stabilize the perimeter of the cake using plastic cake film. Wrap the cake in plastic wrap and let sit in the fridge overnight.
6. Decorate with your favorite fruit, make a glaze with nappage, and it is done.
7. It may look like a cake, but it is tiramisu! Refrigerate until you are ready to eat it.
8. Tip: I tried cutting it after leaving it in the fridge for just a short amount of time, but it is basically tiramisu! It is pretty difficult to cut it cleanly.

Story Behind this Recipe

※I made this for a Christmas sweets contest sponsored by a jam manufacturer. I used sugarfree jam, which goes perfectly with fresh fruit and mascarpone! The natural sweetness is really delicious. Using chiffon cake as the container, something I wanted to try out too, went just as planned too!
