Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes with Earl Grey Buttercream and Salted Caramel

Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes with Earl Grey Buttercream and Salted Caramel

You might think it sounds like a strange combination, but the moist, slightly bitter dark chocolate cake is heavenly when you add the fluffy meringue-style icing with a hint of bergamot.

It’s pretty much chocolate and orange! And salted caramel goes with everything. Why not shake up your Sunday cup of tea?

Thin Mints S’Mores Cupcakes

Thin Mints S'Mores Cupcakes

It’s the most wonderful time of the yeaaar…no, it’s not Christmas – it’s Girl Scouts cookie season! And there’s only one thing better than a plain Thin Mint: a Thin Mints s’more.

These Thin Mints s’more inspired-cupcakes have a Thin Mints cookie crust (to mimic a s’mores crust) at the bottom of a mint chocolate cupcake, which is topped with homemade marshmallow fluff. Before you toast the marshmallow, top them off with a Thin Mint cut in half and made into a mini s’mores for the perfect topping.

Brownie Cupcakes for Two

Brownie Cupcakes for Two

This recipe makes exactly TWO fudgy chocolate brownie cupcakes, in one bowl, right in the toaster oven! Topped with a creamy buttercream frosting, this recipe is perfect for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or extra special small-batch after dinner treat.

I like to top them with a simple vanilla or chocolate buttercream, but feel free to mix and match with your cupcakes, for your own custom, gourmet flavor combinations!

Vegan Love: Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Rich Chocolate Frosting

Vegan Love: Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Rich Chocolate Frosting

Have you ever tried a vegan cupcake? The truth is, had I not been the one who made these cupcakes, I would honestly never guess that they were dairy and egg free, because they are perfectly decadent.

Both taste and texture went way beyond my expectations, truly (particularly the cake texture–so incredibly moist). Trust me, whether you’re vegan or not, these cupcakes are frickin’ yummy.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries

Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries

Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me.  Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal.

The cakes are just sweet enough, and have a light, fluffy crumb – the perfect vehicle for rich chocolate buttercream. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match. I’ve been looking for something different to serve for Valentine’s dessert, and this is definitely different.

Friday the 13th Slasher Smores Cupcakes

Friday the 13th Slasher Smores Cupcakes

Happy Friday the 13th! This is actually the first of two this year, and it rightfully deserves its own cupcake. This one should do the trick.

While coming events might rightfully seem more frightening than a traditionally unlucky day, Friday the 13th will always be famous in its own right, and we think if the day is famous, it’s worth celebrating with a cupcake, like this gory vegan tribute to Jason himself.

Hot Cocoa Cupcakes

Hot Cocoa Cupcakes

These rich chocolate cocoa cupcakes are filled with gooey marshmallow creme, topped with a sweet marshmallow-y cocoa frosting and a swirl of “whipped cream” frosting and toppings galore.

If you wanna get really festive, you can bake your cupcakes in fun baking cups or oven safe mini paper drinking cups, create a handle out of candy or icing coated pretzels to look like a mug and add fun toppings.

For any and all of you starting the new year with a goal to be a little lighter on your feet, these cupcakes can make that happen without the guilt.

They’re incredibly moist and chocolatey, and the frosting is delicious and rich – without being too sweet, like many frostings can, and in all this yummy goodness, these cakes are lower on fat than your average sweet. Win, win?

Reindeer Cupcakes

Reindeer Cupcakes

Christmas Day is finally here, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than by toasting to Santa’s main man, Rudolph.

These adorable reindeer cupcakes pay homage to the outcast reindeer who lit the way for gifts and goodies and went down in history. They’re likely to go the same way, after they hit taste buds and tummies.
