freezing tiramisu?

  • 8

My friends were hosting a pot luck with an Italian theme and asked me to bring the dessert. I made a huge tiramisu (ingredients cost me about $30) yesterday for the dinner tonight and just got an email that they cancelled the dinner. I have no idea what to do with this dessert!!! Can I freeze part of it? My husband and I can't eat this all ourselves. What would you do? This is pretty annoying.

Thanks!

  1. It won't be the same, but freezing it is better than throwing it out.

    Do you have a friend who's in AA? Call him up and let him take it to a meeting (assuming there's no booze in it).

    1. Of course you can. Many tiramisu's are traditionally made with a quick 1 or 2 hour trip in the freezer.

      Once you've frozen it, just let it thaw out on the counter before serving.

      Just like brand new.

          I froze my tiramisu for two weeks and it came out great! I thawed it in the fridge.

        2. Now isn't that annoying! I hate it when people cancel on you after you've planned to make a recipe!

          1. Don't freeze the marscapone cheese will break, got neighbors??

              have never had issues freezing cheeses like cream cheese or mascarpone.

            2. Frozen T is amazing. Totally different texture. Let it thaw ten minutes before serving.
