Tailgate Cupcakes

If you like salted caramel then these cupcakes are your dream come true. The cupcakes contain a mixture of vanilla extract, sugar, butter, milk and a few other ingredients. Once they’re baked, warm caramel sauce is poured over and into them, thanks to a series of holes that are poked into each cupcake beforehand. They are then topped with home salted caramel buttercream frosting. Sprinkle on a little course salt before serving in order to continue the theme.

Lemon Mochi Basil Cupcakes

There are a number of different “classic” cupcake combinations, but one can become tired of them pretty quickly. If you’re tired of the usual vanilla and chocolate cupcakes accompanied by either vanilla or chocolate frosting, then make sure to check out these lemon mocha basil cupcakes. The cupcakes themselves are made of a combination of both standard all purpose flour and mochiko (a type of rice) flour, hence the name. The frosting is a lemon basil buttercream that compliments them perfectly. Who needs classic!

Cherry Pie Cupcakes

White cake mix, a whole (pitted) fresh cherry and some creative topping all combine to make these cherry pie cupcakes into tasty showstoppers. While the batter is easy to make (just combine all of the ingredients and then push a cherry into the center of each cupcake before baking) the topping requires a little creativity. Adhere red M&M’s candies to the top of the baked and cooled cupcakes with frosting, then add more buttercream around them to give the illusion of a cherry pie. What a yummy surprise!

Bittersweet Chocolate and Cardamom Cupcakes

Chocolate cupcakes are an excellent, classic dessert. However, add in some cardamom and switch the chocolate over to a bittersweet (not semisweet) variety and you have an interesting and delicious treat. These bittersweet chocolate and cardamom cupcakes do contain both of the ingredients listed in their name. However, the trick to making them even tastier lies in the whipped chocolate ganache frosting. Layer it on top once these treats have baked and cooled.
