Tiramisu Cupcakes

A light vanilla bean genoise (spongecake) cupcake, infused with a Marsala-Coffee syrup, and finished off with a marscapone frosting with a touch of cocoa powder and a chocolate covered espresso bean. It is big enough to serve two, but good luck sharing this baby!

This cupcake was inspired by a romantic evening at a local Italian restaurant where I shared a dessert with someone special. Tiramisu reminds me of our date night every time I make it.

*Note: this cupcake needs refrigeration because of the marscapone frosting, but it will hold up for 2-3 days.
