Tiramisu cupcake delights

These are delightful little mouthfuls of coffee deliciousness!

I made a basic vanilla cupcake – my ‘go to’ Hummingbird Bakery recipe, a bowl of Espresso Cream Cheese frosting, and a bowl of Espresso and Kahlua syrup.

All elements assembled and ready to go

Then once they were perfectly baked, I cut out a little bit of the middle.

Then I added a scoop of Espresso Cream Cheese frosting, and dipped the cut-out middle in the Espresso and Kahlua syrup.

12 pieces of cupcake perfection waiting for their final touch – a light dusting of good quality cocoa, and a couple of coffee beans. Who can resist that?!
