1chocolate cake mix* I use Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker Devil's Food Cake Mix
1tablespooninstant coffee granules
24lady fingers*about 20- 24, however many come in the package you purchase
4tablespoonseedless raspberry jam*you can use regular raspberry jam if you can't get seedless
Fridge: IF you use a stabilized whipped cream frosting, these cupcakes can be stored in a sealed container, separately, from the whipped cream, in the fridge for 3 days (you may need to whip the whipped cream frosting again. If you frost them before putting them in the fridge, I would not recommend doing this more than 8-12 hours in advance. *If you use a regular whipped cream frosting (with no piping gel or gelatin), the whipped cream will only hold an hour or so.
Freezer: The cupcakes freeze well for up to 3 months, in a sealed container. Fully defrost the cupcakes before frosting them. *I do not recommend you freeze the cupcakes frosted, as the frosting tends to run once defrosted.
Freeze Leftover Mascarpone Cheese: You can freeze Mascarpone Cheese for up to 3 months! I used some that I had frozen to make this recipe. It keeps best if you put the container into a Ziplock freezer (not storage) bag. Just be sure to let it thaw completely in the refrigerator prior to using it.
Leftover Whipped Cream Frosting: If you find yourself with leftover icing, it is divine on waffles, especially my Belgian Chocolate Waffles!👪 Serving sizeThis recipe makes 18 cupcakes.
