Tiramisu Cupcakes

Tiramisu cupcakes are full of authentic flavor and soaked in a mixture of espresso and rum!

"This is what I would like to call as “the perfect dessert”. These tiramisu cupcakes are so yummy. And I certainly love that you used lots of mascarpone and whipped cream topping. This will definitely go well with a good cup of coffee. Thanks for sharing this!"
