Tiramisu Cupcakes

I've been on quite the cupcake baking spree this last week!  Danielle, a friend of mine, is turning 30 this week so we decided to throw a birthday party for her.  We went with an Italian theme for dinner so I recommended making Italian sodas and I brought Tiramisu cupcakes.

This is a Martha Stewart recipe out of the Martha Stewart Cupcakes cookbook.  I'm never disappointed with a Martha Stewart recipe ~ everyone who tried these cupcakes (the girls at the party, my friends husband, Kyle, my in-laws, and my friend Lindsay) all loved them.  They have a rich coffee flavor and the mascarpone frosting is delicious.  The recipe was also simple to make (but does call for some special ingredients like a vanilla bean, mascarpone cheese, and marsala wine for the coffee-marsala sauce that gets basted over the top). 

If you're going to have an Italian-themed party, or if you just love Tiramisu, I recommend giving this recipe a try.
