Stir sugar into espresso until dissolved. Stir in liqueur; set aside to cool. Using a long serrated knife, cut cake in half horizontally, making 2 layers. Place 1 layer in the bottom of a 9-inch square baking dish. Using a pastry brush, brush with half the espresso syrup. Sift 2 Tbsp espresso powder over top. Put 1 qt ice cream into bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until softened; spread over bottom cake layer. Top with second cake layer; brush with the syrup. Let chill in freezer 20 minutes. Sift remaining 2 Tbsp ground espresso over cake. Mix remaining qt ice cream in the bowl of an electric mixer until softened. Spread over cake, swirling decoratively. Freeze until firm. Frozen tiramisu can be wrapped in plastic and stored in the freezer up to 3 days. Before serving, garnish with chocolate curls.
