Tiramisu is an Italian dessert made with mascapone cheese, whipped cream and layered with coffee soaked lady finger biscuits. There are two versions to make the mascapone filling - one using eggs yolks and one without. Since I made the lady fingers at home (using eggs), I did not use the egg version of mascapone. ps. Do not mind my dark and gloomy pics, my husband cut the cake late evening and blame it on the dull weather that day.
