Tiramisu (Bill’s Birthday Part 1 – Prep)

Bill got his choice of cake for his birthday and he wanted me to make Tiramisu. His Birthday is on a Friday so it worked out great; I can make the dessert the night before and won’t have to worry about it after work.

Bill’s collection of coffee and espresso capsules. Don’t be fooled by the selection of espresso though, we actually don’t know much about espresso…that’s why we bought so many different kinds.

Giant Lady Fingers. I couldn’t find the other ones that are thinner and coated with sugar. I actually like those ones more.

Layer the cream and the lady fingers. I put them in these wine glasses that I bought at HomeSense. I figured I had to have wine glasses at home in case we had guests over ….someday…
