Froggy Cupcakes

Froggy Cupcakes

These sweet little frog inspired cupcakes are made from buttercream and the very best vanilla cupcakes!

These frog cupcakes were suggested by (ok, they flat out begged) my kids. We had fun figuring out a way to do them that was easy but still looked like a frog. You do NOT want to see the very first ones we made! Words like “blob” and “scary” come to mind.

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.

Christmas is getting closer, which means holiday parties are in full-swing. If you’re looking for a festive recipe to take to this weekend’s bash, these chocolate Christmas tree cupcakes should do the trick! It’s worth noting that the trees are chocolate, not the cupcakes, but don’t let that turn you off. While this simple white cupcake recipe is great on its own, adding a bit of buttercream frosting and adorable handmade trees on top makes a tasty, festive forest of deliciousness. Who doesn’t love an entire forest of yummy?

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.
