Gluten Free Tiramisu Parfaits

One of my favorite recipes is tiramisu. These gluten free tiramisu parfaits combines some of my favorite fillings: vanilla pudding, cream cheese, and whipped cream with one of my favorite cakes, sponge cake. (The sponge cake is the same recipe I use in my Gluten Free Tiramisu Cake Recipe.) The espresso, or strong coffee, along with chocolate create traditional tirmasu flavor. It’s easier to serve when having guests and is impressive. Tiramsu is often everyone’s favorite. May they all enjoy!
