Ingredients

Cupcakes:

One 15.25-ounce box yellow cake mix

3 large eggs 

1 cup water 

1/2 cup vegetable oil 

1 tablespoon sweet marsala wine 

Frosting:

Two 6-ounce containers mascarpone cheese

One 8-ounce block cream cheese, at room temperature 

1 1/2 tablespoons instant espresso powder 

1/2 cup powdered sugar 

Pinch kosher salt 

Unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line 18 muffin cups with cupcake liners.
  2. For the cupcakes: Combine the cake mix, eggs, water, oil and marsala in a large bowl. Using a hand held mixer, beat on medium speed until combined, about 2 minutes. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 of the way to the top (about 3 tablespoons). Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
  3. For the frosting: While the cupcakes are cooling, combine the mascarpone, cream cheese, espresso powder, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Using a handheld mixer, beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Divide the frosting evenly on the cupcakes and spread over the tops. Dust with cocoa powder and serve. Store in the refrigerator.
