Tiramisu Cupcakes with Mascarpone Whipped Cream Frosting
Think about it... if I make a batch of 24 cupcakes, the decorating possibilities are ENDLESS! I can put filling in some, I can top them with different frostings, different swirling or decorating techniques, and I could even top each of the two dozen cupcakes with a different variety of sprinkle!! And yes, I do have that many sprinkles...
Don't even get me started on cupcake liners either.... I'm sort of obsessed. Does anyone else have this problem? I'm at the store, planning to make a batch of cupcakes, and even though I have a bazillion liners at home already, if I see a pattern that I don't have yet, I HAVE to buy them. Yes, I HAVE TO. Sometimes I will even plan a new cupcake flavor or decorating style based on the new liners that I found. Please tell me I'm not the only one that does this!
These Tiramisu cupcakes are definitely making it onto my permanent rotation of cupcakes creations. Everyone at the event told me they loved them and the classic Tiramisu dessert translates perfectly into cupcake form, minus the lady fingers, which I don't think anyone missed.
This cupcake is your basic white cupcake. The center is removed, soaked in coffee liqueur syrup and stuffed back in with a little bit of frosting inside. The topping is a Mascarpone Whipped Cream flavored with a little Kahlua as well. In my recipe I've added an additional option for making a stabilized whipped cream in case you want to make these ahead of time.
