Cannoli cupcakes are made with light cinnamon cake and a creamy mascarpone frosting to create a treat that you won’t be able to resist!
It is always an exciting day when a good friend releases a new cookbook! Lindsay from Life Love and Sugar recently released her first cookbook, Simply Beautiful Homemade Cakes. Lindsay’s cookbook is everything I expected and more. Not only does the book include beautiful cakes and cupcakes, but it also includes step by step tutorials, tips and techniques for making bakery quality cakes at home. With everything from Red Wine Chocolate Cake to these Cannoli Cupcakes, you will want to make a new cake or cupcake every week!
While all of the recipes in the book are made to impress, I decided to make these Cannoli Cupcakes to share with you. I love a homemade cannoli but I think that they are even better in cupcake form. You can’t beat the creamy mascarpone frosting piped on top of flavorful cinnamon cake.
The cupcakes come together relatively easily. After the cinnamon cake layer is baked in the oven, a few ingredients combines to create the creamy frosting. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips and extra confectioners’ sugar to create the cannoli flavor. Made with the freshest ingredients, homemade cannoli cupcakes taste better than anything you can buy at the store. Serve these cupcakes for birthdays, holidays, and dinner parties. Or just make a batch to enjoy for dessert.
Don’t wait, purchase Simply Beautiful Homemade Cakes and impress your friends and family with these beautiful cakes. Best of all, the book also includes fifty pages of tips and tutorials for creating smooth icing, piping cupcake frosting and more!
