  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) instant coffee granules

  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) coffee liqueur (see Cook's Tip)
    Filling & Topping
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) thawed frozen whipped topping

  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Spray cups of Deluxe Mini-Muffin Pan with nonstick cooking spray. For cakes, combine cake mix, sour cream, egg, coffee granules and water in Classic Batter Bowl; mix using Small Mix ‘N Scraper®. Divide batter evenly among cups of pan. Bake 8-–10 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in centers comes out clean.

  2. Meanwhile, place whipped topping into large resealable plastic bag; secure and set aside. For filling, combine cheese, sugar and vanilla in clean Classic Batter Bowl; mix until smooth using clean scraper. Place filling into an additional resealable plastic bag; secure and set aside.

  3. Remove pan from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack. Press tops of cakes with lightly floured Mini-Tart Shaper to make slight indentations; cool 2 minutes. Remove cakes from pan to cooling rack. Brush tops with coffee liqueur using Chef's Silicone Basting Brush; cool completely.

  4. Trim corners of both bags. Pipe filling over cakes. Pipe whipped topping over filling. Sprinkle with cocoa powder, if desired.
