It is that time of the year when I need something to pick me up, cheer me up or just lift me up.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen I am talking about the one and only – TIRAMISU!
I or we need to make the tiramisu. Why?
Because it is Italian.(do I need to say more?) Of course, NOT.
But, still I will continue…
The tiramisu is a popular coffee-flavored dessert made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee,
layered with a whipped mixture of mascarpone cheese, whip cream and sugar.
If you are ready as I am…we can start our baking show.
