Matcha Tiramisu 抹茶提拉米苏

We bought many matcha flavour of KitKat from Hokkaido, so far we have yet to find this matcha KitKat at the supermarket here, the usual one only chocolate flavour. I hide few boxes of this matcha KitKat in the refrigerator as I wanting to use it to decorate this matcha Tiramisu. After kept for almost 2 months, I can't kept it any longer because my kids already found the kitkat, so I have to quickly put into action before they steal it ^_^.

Simply gorgeous. But how do you pipe discs to exactly 6 inches without it spreading either before or during baking especially when there isn't any ring to holdthe battery in place?


Anonymous said...

I meant to hold the batter in place:)


Mel said...

Wow, matcha first time come across this, special!! It is so matching beautifully with this matcha tiramisu. Lovely, just lovely!

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Veron, the cake batter is thick and slightly fluffy, so you can just pipe from small circle to big circle and become a disc . So do not over mix the meringue with flour , when it is deflate then you will have a watery batter, then you can't pipe it into nice shape..

Michelle said...


Do you think its possible to substitute whipping cream and gelatin with thickened cream instead?

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Michelle, sorry, I can't advise you as I have never use thickened cream before. Maybe you give it a try and let me know the result.
