White Chocolate Cupcakes with the Best White Icing

White Chocolate Cupcakes with the Best White Icing

Sometimes it’s cool to go a little more “vanilla,” even if that actually means white chocolate. These cupcakes give the color white a whole new meaning, one that hides delicious richness and a bit of childhood nostalgia.

Perfected vanilla cupcakes topped with a homemade white chocolate frosting and circus animal cookies, these little babies are the perfect way to start off any week, or any day, for that matter!

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.

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.

Honey and Orange Cupcakes

Honey & Orange Cupcakes

What an oh-so-sweet combination honey and orange makes, and there’s no better way to serve this combo than in a cupcake. What makes these cupcakes so extra special and cute? They’re topped with adorable little marzipan bees! These babies are bursting with orange, including orange juice, orange zest and orange extract, and even the buttercream topping has a touch of orange flavor. If you’re in the market for a refreshing, slightly healthy sweet treat, you’ve stumbled upon gold.

Elmo Cupcakes

Elmo Cupcakes

No doubt your clan would like any of the Sesame Street character cupcakes, but we bet that Elmo becomes their favorite. Not just because they look so darn cute, but because they taste yummy too! Good buttercream frosting makes Elmo’s fur look so realistic. A whole bunch of Elmos can be made using this chocolate batter, then tinting the buttercream frosting with a mix of red and orange coloring.

WATCH OUT! SHAAAARK!….did I scare you? If I didn’t, maybe these deliciously frightening cupcakes will.

These would be great for celebrating Shark Week or a sea-themed party for your favorite little one.

The kids are going to love these Grouch cupcakes, and they certainly won’t be grouchy after they have tasted them. They are a continuation of the Cookie Monster cupcakes with a few changes, but are just as well received by the little ones and the adults too. They are brightly colored and made with an easy-to-follow recipe. No doubt you will want to dedicate more time to the decorating than the actual making and baking.
