Description

Mocha madness: These chocolatey treats are flavored with freshly brewed espresso as well as instant coffee granules, which are also mixed into the fluffy, buttery cream-cheese frosting. To achieve the trademark cupcake-shop swirl, pipe the frosting using a pastry bag fitted with a large plain tip and pipe in a spiral fashion, using steady pressure and lifting the tip as you go. Finish with a dusting of cocoa powder.
