Black, White and Orange Vanilla Bean Cupcakes with Spiced Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Vanilla bean and chocolate spice. Can you think of a better, more wintery combination? We can’t. These cupcakes meld the combo perfectly with real vanilla bean and a touch of chili pepper. The recipe even wraps up these yummy packages with beautiful orange sugar flowers. If orange doesn’t capture your emotions about these cupcakes, opt for another color and make this recipe work for any occasion.

A Giant Cupcake for Hump Day

Giant Cupcake

Wednesdays are tough, and sometimes, at the end of the day, all you really need is a horrendously tempting treat. If that’s the case, this recipe for one single cupcake, albeit a giant one, is right up your alley. It’s debatable whether this mega-treat is bigger than a toddler’s head, but it’s certainly big enough to feed a couple of people…or an entire party. This giant cupcake is sweetened with sugar and spice and everything nice (and also castor sugar). As far as the topping goes, a white chocolate buttercream does the trick, but if that’s not your flavor, do what you want – it’s tough to go wrong with a giant cupcake.

If you’re just not sure what taste to provide for your guests (or yourself on a Monday) when it comes to a light sweet, a plain, but perfect, vanilla cupcake will be wonderfully received. Take a few extra moments to give the batter some extra care and make these cupcakes exceptional. The secret? Creaming the butter and the sugar. As an added tip, don’t forget that room temperature eggs make for a better cupcake!

White Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

White Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Sometimes just being able to enjoy a simple, but very light and tasty, white cupcake is far more enjoyable than many of the other flavor combinations. This is especially true if the cupcake is being offered as an afternoon treat or following a heavy meal. This cupcake, although simple to make but extremely delicious in taste, is topped with a vanilla buttercream frosting that just adds the final touch of taste to a very basic white cupcake.
