I love to experiment and make recipes my own. I also like to be as creative as I can and make something special for my guests. So, in creating this recipe, I thought of putting my two favourite desserts together….cupcakes and tiramisu! It’s a dessert mash-up!

Kitchen tip: Hellmann’s original mayonnaise works best in this recipe.
