    This is a gorgeous dessert that uses ginger cake and mascarpone to make a Christmas tiramisu. It's a great way to use up any gingerbread cake. Just before serving, cut out some paper stars and lay them on top of the tiramisu; sprinkle cocoa powder on top, then remove the paper stars to reveal a lovely Christmas decoration.
