About This Class

Join food bloggers Monica and Caroline in a class on how to make a traditional tiramisu from scratch, along with a couple creative twists. This class is open to any beginning and intermediate bakers who want to build their skills, as well as advanced bakers looking for some inspiration.

We will begin by making all the components for a very traditional Italian tiramisu, from homemade ladyfingers to the mascarpone filling. Then, we will create a few variations -- tiramisu opera cake and tiramisu charlotte -- that will give bakers a beloved yet creative dessert to bring to the table.
