These cannoli cupcakes are the perfect finish to an Italian dinner, or similarly themed party. The trick to make them cannoli-like lies in the ricotta cheese and marsala wine mixed into the otherwise traditional (flour, vanilla, milk, sugar, orange zest, eggs, salt and baking powder) cupcake batter. The cannoli filling is made from more ricotta cheese, chocolate chips, sugar and orange zest, and then the whole thing is topped off with a homemade vanilla bean buttercream frosting — and a few chopped pistachios for good measure.
