Easy, Easy Fake Tiramisu

This is for people who live where there is no mascarpone cheese... or for people who want to serve something fancy without the fancy work! This is an easy thing to do with kids.
I made it up in Haiti and people love it - tiramisu fans and even those who aren't.

Here are the three layers...

for cream filling whip:
4 small boxes cheesecake or vanilla pudding
1 quart heavy whipping cream
3 cups milk

for lady fingers (if you can't buy them already made):
mix one box yellow cake mix as directed
bake in a large cookie sheet (will be very thin) for 12-17 minutes
when cooked cut in lady finger sized pieces

for sauce:
1/4 cup mocha cappuccino mix
2 cups water
3/4 tsp to 1 tsp rum or rum flavoring (or more if you feel like it)

Put layers in a 9"x13" deep pan (disposable turkey pans are great).
Lay out 1/2 of the lady fingers
Drizzle 1 cup sauce.
Spread 1/4 of the cream.
Rest of lady fingers.
Drizzle rest of sauce.
Spread rest of cream.
Lightly sprinkle a little cappuccino mix or chocolate powder on the top.

Serves a truck load of people! If you don't need that much, make it all and divide it between four bread pans and deliver the extras to friends. They'll love you for it.
