Full Answer

For strawberry jam cakes, beat 1/2 cup softened butter with 3/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon orange zest. Add 2 egg yolks individually, beating until creamy. In a separate bowl, sift together 1.5 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Alternate adding the flour mixture and 1/4 cup milk to the butter.

Whisk 2 egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the batter. Divide half the batter evenly into a greased six-cup muffin tin. Make an indentation in each, and spoon 1 tablespoon strawberry jam into each. Top the cups with the remaining batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

For icebox tiramisu, whip 2/3 cup whipping cream. Add 3 teaspoons confectioner's sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Continue whipping until the cream sets. Mix 1/3 cup espresso and 1/3 cup Kahlua in a separate bowl.

Place a chocolate wafer cookie in the bottom of four dessert cups and spoon 2 teaspoons of the espresso mix over each. Grate semi-sweet chocolate over the top, and then top with 1 teaspoon of the whipped cream. Repeat the whole process for five layers total. Refrigerate for two hours.
