Tequila Sunrise Cupcakes

Tequila Sunrise Cupcakes

These cupcakes are light, fluffy and fun version of the classic cocktail. The cupcake is flavored with fresh squeezed orange juice and orange zest which gives it the most wonderful citrusy orange flavor.

They make a really fun presentation and feel like summer in a cupcake. They are light and delicious and make me feel like I should be sipping my tequila sunrise cocktail and eating a cupcake right by the pool.

Orange Crush Cupcakes

Orange Crush Cupcakes

The Orange Crush, in cocktail form  (not to be confused with the cloyingly sweet soda variety), is synonymous with our beaches here on the Eastern Shore. A few simple ingredients are shaken up to create one of the freshest and fruitiest drinks you’ll find.  They’ve long been one of my favorites in the summertime. So, I got to thinking – why not in cupcake form?

Cake by the ocean, baby! If there ever was a cake deemed worthy of being consumed by the ocean – it’s most certainly these. Make them soon to welcome the warm weather! No regrets.

Irish Cream and Salted Caramel Cupcakes

Irish Cream and Salted Caramel Cupcakes

Fridays are for spiked coffee, right? We’re cool with that rule, and this cupcake recipe hits the nail on the sweet, sweet head. Plus, this puppy’s perfect for Father’s Day!

These fluffy cupcakes are topped with an Irish cream-spiked cream cheese frosting. The sweet Irish cream contrasts well with the tangy cream cheese, so the silky smooth frosting is very addictive. It is even more addictive once it has been topped with a drizzle of caramel sauce and a sprinkle of sea salt. Those two topping elements really take this cupcake over-the-top.

Smokey Bourbon Chocolate Cupcakes with Bacon Bark

Smokey Bourbon Chocolate Cupcakes with Bacon Bark

These Smokey Bourbon Chocolate Cupcakes are to die for! Not only are the cupcakes SO moist and chocolatey – they are full of bourbon and smokey salt and topped with a smokey salted bacon chocolate bark. I mean, are you kidding?! The flavors together are SOOOO good!

Even if you aren’t a fan of actually drinking bourbon, you might love these cupcakes. They are the jam. But there is a lot of flavor going on so get ready for a kick in the tastebuds, my friends. These are no joke.

Margarita Cupcakes

Margarita Cupcakes

We’re eating our margs today, ok? These cupcakes with tequila? They’re for cinco de mayo // the cult obsession with margaritas. Proud member right here. I know you are too.

What I have for you today is a very basic lime cupcake recipe. And by basic, I very much do not mean “boring”– I mean simple! Crazy simple. So much so that when I taught this recipe the other night/spilled confectioners’ sugar all over the counter like I do EVERY SINGLE TIME, readers went totally bonkers over their simplicity. That may just be in my head but I swear they’re really easy.

Pink Champagne and Gold Leaf Cupcakes

Pink Champagne and Gold Leaf Cupcakes

One of my enduring obsessions is decorating cakes with edible gold leaf. It’s just so pretty and I’m drawn to the organic nature of its application. You probably know by now, I love a filled cupcake! I made some pink champagne pastry cream and used it to bring even more champagne flavor to the cakes.

They’re good for all celebrations – large and small! The cakes get a big dose of bubbly in the batter, and the pastry cream holds obvious fruity champagne flavor. If you’re not inclined to purchase champagne, then cream soda may be used in its place, and champagne flavoring oil may be added for a non-alcoholic version.

Pink Squirrel Cocktail Inspired Cupcakes

Pink Squirrel Cocktail Inspired Cupcakes

I love pink glittery Christmas decor, and it seems to be showing up in my baked goods, too! This cupcake is inspired by the retro ‘Pink Squirrel’ cocktail. The drink is a bit like a milkshake served in a martini glass (yes please) and it’s flavored with crème de noyaux (almond liquor) and crème de cocoa.

I really had fun with this recipe and translated ‘Pink Squirrel’ into something more literal. I made my own glittering pink squirrel toppers from ready-made gum paste, a squirrel cookie cutter and glitter. You can find a cookie cutter similar to the one I used here.

Vanilla Ginger Spice Cupcakes with Brandy Buttercream

Vanilla Ginger Spice Cupcakes with Brandy Buttercream

One of the best parts of winter is cuddling up with a warm, hearty meal. These cupcakes make not be quite a meal, but they do feature a warming blend of spices and ginger sure to melt through the ice and snow, no matter where you find yourself. Based on a vanilla cake recipe with a few touches of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger and molasses, then topped with homemade brandy buttercream, these cozy winter treats are as good a reason as any to snuggle up on the couch and get to know Netflix a little better.

Prohibition Bakery’s Mai Thai Cupcakes

Mai Thai Cupcakes

New Year’s celebrations are known for being the perfect champagne occasion, but if you’re not into bubbly, or into drinking your booze, you can still usher in 2016 with an edge, thanks to New York City’s Prohibition Bakery.

Just one of the 55 recipes included in the legendary bakery’s new book, these Mai Thai cupcakes put a whole new twist on the world of fruit-filled cupcakes, namely with a touch of your favorite rum. The cupcakes themselves sound delicious enough, filled with healthy-option ingredients like yogurt and coconut oil, but once these babies are topped with a grenadine and coconut rum frosting and injected with rum, they’re sure to be a collection of cakes that start off any year right, especially since they’re small enough to be hors d’oeuvres.
