Anyone out there ever thought of reinventing tried and true 'classic' desserts? I am baking for our local International Festival, and being Italian, I am going to attempt a 'tiramisu' cupcake. What do you think? Cupcake shot with a dallop of mascarpone sweetened creamy filling, then the tops will be brushed with espresso, and iced with a coffee scented vanilla frosting, then dusted with powdered cocoa.
Any thoughts on this one, people?
I'll make a 'test' batch over the weekend. Wish I could send you some, but believe me, they don't ship well. I mailed a co-worker one in an interoffice envelope once for his b'day and when it arrived it was all crumbs! Nix that idea!! It was worth a try, though.
Also being 'tested' will be tropical cupcakes with coconut cream frosting. Very Key West'ish.
