The cakes (small: $29.95, large: $39.95), which include layers of light, silky smooth tiramisu cream, are lined with the coffee-drenched biscuits and are then tied with a fancy ribbon for a nice finishing touch.

With chunks of real pistachio and a nice balance of nutty and sweet flavours, the pistachio tiramisu is easily a favourite.
