Project Description

Make Tiramisu You Actually Want to Eat

There’s really no substitution for making your own tiramisu and getting to tailor its flavors to suit your own preferences. Follow our recipe for tiramisu from scratch, or if you want to be really wild, try making our tiramisu charlotte or tiramisu opera cake. Find all three recipes here: or in the attachment above!

  1. Buy a slice of tiramisu and describe its texture and flavors. Snap a picture if you're into that Instagram life. Upload into project gallery.
  2. Make your own homemade ladyfingers, using the recipe we provide. Or, simply use store-bought ladyfingers. Upload a quick picture, or a few sentences on where you found your ladyfingers (not very many stores carry them, but I’ve always had luck at Whole Foods), or what difficulties you ran into while make them. We would love to hear how the process goes, and provide tips or ideas.
  3. Make the mascarpone cheese filling. 
  4. Assemble your tiramisu: Upload a photo of your tiramisu to the project gallery.
