Classic Tiramisu with step by step picture instructions

Follow by Email

I believe the best tasting tiramisu should be simple and traditional made with quality ingredients. For this week’s Bake Along challenge we had this wonderful and exotic dessert to make, the reason behind making this special dessert was Fondbites, Bake Along reached a milestone, we are in the Week #50, and completed 1 full glorious years of delicious baking challenges. To celebrate our first Bake Along anniversary we made this heavenly dessert. :) . Happy anniversary to all Bake Along bakers. Cheers :). I followed Subhashini’s recipe as it is(ditto) without any changes :). I salute Subhashini’s patience and dedication towards the group, Fondbites Bake Along.
