Do I really hafta share my Tiramisu?

I *adore* tiramisu. It ranks right up there with cheesecake and I'm pretty certain that I could survive on cheesecake and tiramisu alone. If I'm ever deserted on an island (just so you know) all I want is dessert;-)

So what prompted me to learn to make my own tiramisu? Why, my son's Birthday. It's what he wanted as his Birthday cake. . . and who am I to say no to someone on their Birthday???

Tiramisu

6 egg yolks*
6 Tbsp sugar
1 lb Mascarpone cheese
16 oz strong espresso, cooled
2-4 shots dark rum
2 packages lady fingers (48)
4 Tbsp powdered unsweetened cocoa
2 tsp cinnamon

Bring all ingredients to room temperature.
