3. Drench the Ladyfingers a.k.a. Sponge Fingers generously with the Sponge Finger Syrup and arrange them in the middle.
4. Repeat assembling step 2 & step 4 ending with spreading the Tiramisu Mix evenly.
5. Place the Cocoa Powder in a fine strainer, and generously sift the Cocoa Powder over the tops of Tiramisu cake.

Some Extra Tips Below:
- If Optional Galatine Mix is not used, ensure the cake is chilled longer.
- If you're baking your own Homebaked Ladyfingers a.k.a. Sponge Fingers like us. Pipe the length of the sides and divide the rest of the batter into three 6" round parchment paper / baking pan that is lined with baking sheet at the bottom.
- Our tip for easy Assembling and removal. We used an adjustable round ring and line the sides with plastic.
