Taking over the world with Tiramisu Cupcakes


I received Vegan Cupcakes Take over the World for Valentine's Day, and made my first batch this weekend to celebrate a couple of birthdays.

The birthday boy chose Tiramisu Cupcakes from the "Fancy Cupcakes" chapter, and they were awesome. I doubled the recipe with ease. Everyone adored them and couldn't believe they were vegan. *shakes head* I found the frosting to be more similar to a vanilla buttercream, although it contains a small amount of vegan cream cheese. Even one person who doesn't like sweet cream cheese loved it. Assembly was pretty easy too, starting with a basic vanilla cupcake. I cut a cone out of each one, dipped half of each cut-out cone in a mix of Kahlúa and strong coffee (spooned some into each cupcake too), filled each cupcake with the buttercream, and put the cone back on top. A final dollop of buttercream, a dark chocolate-covered espresso bean, and a sprinkle of cocoa and cinnamon, and they looked (and tasted) fabulous!
