Baking with Tay: Tiramisu Cupcakes

Baking with Tay: Tiramisu Cupcakes

My boyfriend’s birthday was yesterday (December 17) and I wanted to make him something special…since it was his 25th birthday! He really loves two things: tiramisu and strawberry shortcake. I’ve never made him tiramisu, so I decided to go with that…except I turned it into cupcakes. I found a great recipe on Pinterest and wanted to share it with you all!
