Strawberry Tiramisu Cupcake Cake
This idea came from failed cupcakes. I wanted to try out Martha Stewart's Tiramisu Cupcakes. They turned out horribly dry and definitely not birthday party friendly. I had to act fast, so I brainstormed and decided to make a layered cake with the bad cupcakes and strawberries. To moisten the cake a little I brushed each layer with Kahlua. I pureed some strawberries and mixed it with the Mascarpone frosting from the recipe to add to each layer. Then I got a cupcake and used my handy dandy Magic Bullet to make cake crumbs for the top of the cake. I sprinkled with sliced almonds and there we go. The cake was a hit...thank God because it was headed for disaster! Thanks a lot Martha.
