Tiramisu is Italian and means “take me”. This glow, eyes rolling, tasting pimple has become a traditional wedding anniversary dessert I prepared for myself and my 17 year old husband. You could call it a fun dessert with men! This is my simple version of the classic with no raw eggs and layers of fresh strawberries and amazing mashed potatoes. This is a delicacy! It is designed for two very large servings.
- 1 pint of fresh strawberries
- cup of powdered sugar
- 1 cup mascarpone cheese
- a glass of cream
- 2 tablespoons of coffee drink
- 18 ladybugs
- A glass of cold espresso
- teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
