Tiramisu is a classic dessert that is best served cold. These Tiramisu cupcakes are, like the original, made up of layers of ladyfingers soaked in a blend of coffee and rum, which makes them for adults only. To make them as authentic as possible, follow this recipe and pre-bake your ladyfingers in cupcake wrappers before soaking them, topping them with the fluffy layers of marscapone cheese, whipped cream and other goodies, and then refrigerate before serving.

Tiramisu literally means “pick me up” in Italian and these Tiramisu cupcakes are certainly a pick me up to your taste buds. The lovely Italian dessert by the same name is adapted in sweet cupcake form by adding a coffee liqueur, cooled espresso, and cocoa powder. The same flavorings are added to the cream cheese and mascarpone frosting to carry the rich flavor from cake to frosting to your happy taste buds.

Classic Italian Tiramisu with a twist – made into cupcake form – these tasty treats will be a hit at your next party. Although the cupcake itself is simple, with vanilla bean paste, cake flour, sugar and eggs forming the majority of the cake itself, the topping are what make it special. The coffee syrup (made from brewed coffee mixed to a thick consistency with plenty of sugar) and the marscapone frosting differentiate these treats from the norm. Adding a light dusting of coffee and several chocolate-covered coffee beans to the top just makes them that much more memorable!
