You will love this Tiramisu Cupcakes Recipe, Scratch! Tiramisu itself is a deceptively easy dessert, and the flavors are divine. Whenever we eat in an Italian restaurant… it gets ordered. We’ll even make it at home for special occasions. Yum. Coffee soaked lady fingers, creamy coffee flavored mascarpone cheese filling, and a sprinkle of cocoa on top.
But for my daughter, Katy, it is an extra special treat. She asks for it all the time.
Her birthday party is going to be held in a park. Tiramisu for a crowd in the park is sort of difficult to manage.
But… cupcakes… cupcakes are great. Easy to transport and no special equipment is needed to serve them.
These Tiramisu Cupcakes are perfect for a party. They are sweet and delicious, with a taste of coffee and chocolate. I ended up making two sizes… regular for our house party, and mini sized for her friends.

How to Transport Cupcakes
I have tested a lot (I mean a WHOLE LOT) of cupcake carriers over the years. My favorites are squared off (to save space on the shelves), have a sturdy lock (no whoops) and a handle on the top. They also have deep enough insets to keep the cupcakes from tipping over.
I love the 36 cupcake Holder – Cupcake Courier Cupcake Caddy. It holds together well… and keeps my cupcakes safe. You can carry 12- 36 cupcakes easily.
