What’s better than a vanilla cupcake? One with a surprise inside, of course! These homemade vanilla cupcakes (made from vanilla extract, eggs, flour, unsalted butter and sugar, among other things) are baked in festive cupcake liners. Once they have a chance to cool, the fun begins – slice out a hole in the center and pour in a batch of mini m&m’s, before replacing the top of the cupcake and frosting like normal.

Are you ready for a vanilla cupcake that tastes like a sugar cookie? If so, then this is the recipe for you. It is hard to beat these tasty, sugar-y, soft, yet dense cupcakes that can be topped with just about anything — although the cupcake baker recommends a Swiss meringue buttercream and some gumdrops for color. The batter is simple to make, bakes quickly, and contains standard ingredients that are probably already lurking in your kitchen. So, make them already!

Vanilla, vanilla, and more vanilla. Vanilla is what these cupcakes are all about. Itís a chocolate lovers world out there, but itís about time the vanilla lovers unite and start making some truly tasty desserts. I was getting a bit of a chocolate overload recently. It seems that most people just canít make a dessert without adding chocolate somewhere. Well you wonít find a hint of chocolate in these Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Cream Cheese Icing. They are light and airy, yet somehow still super moist. They are also super versatile and can be topped with anything from nuts to sprinkles to fruit.

Sometimes the simple things are the best. These chocolate cupcakes are made out of 10 ingredients, most of which many bakers have laying around in their homes. (The only exception to this might be the buttermilk.) The vanilla frosting is just as simple, consisting solely of heavy cream, butter, sugar and vanilla extract. The strawberry is simply placed on top of the baked, cooled and frosted treats – not placed within them in way. The results are simple, classic, and tasty.

Coconut Snowball Cupcakes are the coconut loverís dream cupcake! Unlike their iconic namesake, these feature a coconut cake. This cake is made of ingredients that combine to form a sweet and moist cake which is subsequently filled with a homemade coconut pastry cream and topped with further coconut goodness by way of a cooked coconut frosting. These make a lovely display when left their natural white, but for a themed party the coconut can be colored quite easily using food coloring.

Finishing off the cupcake appearance with a dash of sprinkles or scattered chocolate vermicelli makes vanilla cupcakes utterly irresistible to even the most non-lovers of sweet goodies.
