Prep: 20 minutes | Rest: 5 hours | Serves 12

2 tbsp marsala wine, dark rum or amaretto (optional)

2 tbsp chocolate-coated coffee beans, chopped

Line a 20cm round springform cake tin with baking paper or acetate.

Trim one end of each ladyfinger to make it flat. Place the ladyfingers, flat end down, around the inside of the cake tin.

Remove the coffee ice cream from the freezer and let it melt slightly for 10-15 minutes.

Spoon the coffee ice cream over the base of the cake tin, levelling the surface with a spatula. Freeze for at least 1 hour.

Mascarpone ice cream: In the meantime, make the mascarpone ice cream. In a big bowl, whisk the cream and 200g of the mascarpone. Add the condensed milk, marsala (if using) and vanilla extract, mixing gently with a spatula.

Churn the mixture in an ice cream machine until thick and creamy. Spoon the soft mascarpone ice cream over the coffee ice cream base, levelling the surface with a spatula.

Return to the freezer for at least 4 hours or until firm.

Topping: Put the cream, remaining mascarpone and icing sugar in a big bowl. Whisk until soft peaks form.

To serve, remove the tiramisu ice cream cake from the cake tin and place on a serving plate.
