Add the whipping cream to the bowl of the stand mixer. Add 75 grams of white caster sugar and whip until almost stiff. Add the egg yolks to a separate bowl and add 25 grams of granulated sugar.
Beat for 5 minutes, or until the the egg yolks become creamy. Add the mascarpone and mix again until smooth. Gently fold the whipped cream into the egg mixture.
Stir together the espresso and the coffee liqueur in a small bowl. Dip the ladyfingers, 1 by 1, in the coffee and liqueur mixture, and arrange them side by side on the bottom of the baking dish. Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers.
Repeat this step with the remaining ladyfingers and mascarpone. Place the tiramisu in the fridge for at least 1 hour; it is best to leave it for 2 hours. Dust with cocoa powder before serving. Enjoy!

What kind of alcohol is in tiramisu?
For a classic Italian tiramisu, use Marsala, which is a sweet Sicilian dessert wine. You can use other types of liqueur such as coffee liqueur, amaretto, orange liqueur, limoncello, and many others.
How far in advance can you prepare tiramisu?
Tiramisu tastes best the day after it is made, when its flavours will have fully developed. Wait to add the dusting of cocoa powder until just before serving, otherwise it will absorb moisture from the tiramisu and become darker and less attractive in appearance.
