Any unique Tiramisu recipes?

I am going to make my own birthday cake this year and have several on making a Tiramisu. I have made a traditional tiramisu before, and I like to be challenged in the kitchen, so I am looking for a unique tiramisu recipe.what do you guys have for me?
Well, I made a tiramisu-inspired Buche de Noel this year for Christmas, but I don't think that's what you're after for a summer birthday. I've been looking for an excuse to make this lemon version from Lidia Bastianich - you could probably do it with another fruit, too. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...
Check out the tiramisu eggnog trifle at epicurious. When you come down to it, the custard really is an eggnog and a tiramisu is a trifle. It's the best I've ever made, better if you make your own ladyfingers.
I like to make tiramisu cakes. I have made traditional and limoncellos ones but my favorite is lemon, raspberry and Marsala . I make a lemon chiffon cake, a Marsala sabayon mixed with whipped cream and marscapone, a raspberry coulli to moisten cake, lemon whipped cream to cover with almond brittle to crown the cake off. I also surround the cake with ladyfingers. Delish! I want to make an apple one next....
This isn't tiramisu by any stretch of the imagination, but was inspired by it....
Beat about 1/3 cup of hazelnut coffee syrup into 500 ml of marscapone cheese. Whip 250 ml of whipping cream, and fold it in. Soak lady fingers in sweetened almond milk. Spread a layer of lady fingers, half the cheese mixture, sprinkle with whole, fresh blueberries, another layer of lady fingers, the rest of the cheese, and more blueberries.
Cook up 1 cup fresh lemon juice, the zest of the lemon and 1 cup white sugar until dissolved. Strain and cool. When you serve, drizzle a bit of the lemon syrup over the dessert.
This is my go-to Christmas day dessert. I came up with it when I wanted something tiramisu like, but couldn't use coffee, alcohol or raw eggs for the guests.
Use a carrot cake (preferrably one with nuts) as the base instead of lady fingers.
Yeah it's different but isn't that what you wanted?
I haven't tried any of the following, but I was planning to make a berry tiramisu last summer, during berry season. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...
There are some online recipes for limoncello tiramisus, meyer lemon tiramisus and raspberry tiramisus that look tempting.
Strawberry and basil tiramisu looks interesting. http://canelakitchen.blogspot.ca/2012...
Or Earl Grey and mango
I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to food and I always make traditional style tiramisu, one of the nicest I've tried is a Heston Blumenthal recipe I cut out of the Sunday Times years ago. I can't find it online now but someone has blogged about it: http://elenagranzulea.wordpress.com/2...
For a more unusual version, have you seen his flower pot tiramisu? http://www.channel4.com/4food/recipes...
Use black chai tea instead of espresso for soaking the ladyfingers, a combination of cocoa powder & ground cinnamon for dusting, and chai spices (e.g. cardamom, cinnamon, ginger) for flavoring the cream.
I'd also love a variation made with matcha (green tea):
i make tiramisu with a healthy dose of jack daniels for my father-in-law who is from tennessee. i think it is why i am his favorite daughter-in-law. also, maybe because i am his only daughter-in-law. ;) haha!
