  • 500 grams Mascarpone Cheese at room temperature
  • 200 grams Cream Cheese at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 400 ml heavy whipping cream whipped to stiff peaks
  • cups approximately 3-4 strong coffee cooled to room temperature
  • 350 grams ladyfinger cookies
  • rum or rum extract to taste
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder


  • Add the Mascarpone cheese, cream cheese, and vanilla extract to a large bowl and whip on high speed with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer.
  • Add the powdered sugar and continue to whip on high speed until combined.
  • Gently fold in the whipped cream with a rubber spatula until it's well combined and the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Add the rum or rum extract to the coffee and dip the ladyfingers in the coffee mixture one by one until you've lined the bottom of a 9-inch by 13-inch pan.
  • Smooth half of the Mascarpone mixture over the bottom layer of coffee-soaked ladyfingers and dust the top of the Mascarpone layer with cocoa powder.
  • Add another layer of coffee-soaked ladyfingers over the cocoa-dusted Mascarpone layer and then top with the remaining Mascarpone mixture, smoothing it out as much as possible.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
  • Dust with the remaining cocoa powder right before slicing and serving.
