Tiramisu Cupcakes

Oh Tiramisu how I love you!

For those of you who aren't familiar with exactly what all goes into the deliciousness that is this dessert, I'll break it down for you. Tiramisu literally means "pick me up" a popular italian cake. It is layered with typically coffee/liquor soaked sponge cake, mascarpone cheese and sifted cocoa.

In Sweet Elites case I have substituted the sponge cake with a super moist white cake that is soaked with a mixture of Kahlua liquor and espresso. It is layered with a soft buttercream frosting in place of the mascarpone cheese and then topped with sifted cocoa and dark chocolate shavings.
