I have made the traditional Tiramisu before but since the Chief does not like coffee I had to try my hand at Strawberry Tiramisu. It is a delicious alternative to coffee and chocolate. The Strawberries are so delicious with the cream and to add that extra special delight I added chocolate shavings to the top to finish it off.
