Cannoli Cupcakes to get back into the swing of things

Cannoli cupcakes are sweet vanilla cake filled with sweetened ricotta cheese and bittersweet chocolate, then frosted with a rich vanilla bean buttercream. Amazing!

And on the 5th day, she just couldn’t take it anymore! OK, maybe it was the 4th. Who’s counting?

I’m fed up with typing about being sick (really – that’s not fun to read), but the other day I just couldn’t take it any more. There’s only so much sitting around in a NyQuil induced coma that one girl can take! Before I knew it I was baking cannoli cupcakes, cleaning, trying to vacuum the dog, and volunteering to go to the Home Depot with the Boyfriend… which let me tell you, is always an adventure.

Apparently a martini after a few days of NyQuil and house arrest makes me a little hyper. Even the waiter made a comment. I explained I’d been on meds and had been sick for a week and he just laughed and said he understood.

I still don’t have my voice back, but I am going to keep running at 100% – Let’s hope we all make it through the rest of this cold winter without any more incidents!

Hmm. I wonder if cannoli cupcakes will cure a common cold.

Just finished making these. Definitely not as great as I thought they would be. Had to add 1/2 cup more powdered sugar to the cannoli filling otherwise it wasn't sweet at all! I too had to double the frosting recipe to have enough for all of the cupcakes. Also, I followed the recipe word for word and MIXED the butter, eggs, vanilla, etc and found that the butter was still lumpy (I used room temperature butter as the recipe called for). I figured I'd leave it because the directions didn't say to cream the butter first, so it must be how it's supposed to look. When the cupcakes came out of the oven they were very greasy/buttery. If I were to make these again I would definitely cream those wet ingredients together rather than mix. I know it's just a play on words, but it matters!

Those are wonderful! I am sorry to hear you are still sick. Hopefully all of that activity just worked the germs right out of your system.

You are just sick of being sick! And I don't blame you. Well, at least your baking and photos turned out beautiful as always. Get better soon!

I've been sick this week too and can totally understand! I want to bake, but I don't want to expose my coworkers to virus-laden cookies :) These cupcakes do look yummy, maybe I can make some just for me. I don't mind my own viruses!

I hope you're feeling better! Nothing like a cupcake to perk you up, though! I love the idea of having a cannoli in cupcake form, I know a lot of my friends would love this!
