Turkey Face Cupcakes

Turkey Face Cupcakes

A fun dessert for Thanksgiving weekend, besides what will you eat for dessert when the pumpkin pie is gone? These Turkey Face Cupcakes will be perfect, trust me!

Pie seems to get eaten pretty fast by the time breakfast rolls around the day after Thanksgiving in our house, so these would be perfect for dessert, drop-per by-ers and YOU of course. You look like you could use a cute cupcake. I know I could after tackling a 20 pound turkey!

Black Velvet Spider Cupcakes

Black Velvet Spider Cupcakes

Black Velvet Spider Cupcakes are a wonderful addition to a Halloween menu. The flavor of the cupcakes match the classic red velvet cupcake, but are dyed black instead of the traditional red.

These black velvet cupcakes can form the base of many Halloween inspired recipes, but today they are represented as frightful little spiders. A few decorative ingredients turn the black velvet cupcakes into creepy-crawly creatures which will (deliciously) frighten your guests.

Pumpkin Walnut Spider Cupcakes

Pumpkin Walnut Spider Cupcakes

What’s scarier.. spiders or snakes? Luckily we don’t have to worry about smashing these spiders! They are actually invited to the halloween party!

These spider cupcakes start with pumpkin walnut cupcake batter, and that might just be my favorite part! They are pretty simple to make and they have great flavor from the brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and pumpkin puree. The walnuts add a great crunch and I’m pretty sure walnuts and pumpkin go together like peanut butter and chocolate 🙂 The only thing you’ll have to worry about with these adorable spiders is how to eat them!

Summer may have just come to an official close, but we think it’s totally acceptable to go ahead and enjoy these octopus cupcakes anyway.

With a basic vanilla base and traditional buttercream frosting, these cupcakes are cute, creative and still yummy. Can you ask for more?

Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing

Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing

One word. Scrumptious. These carrot cake cupcakes are so good, and you’ll never even realize there’s carrot in them (except that you made them, so you know…)

I just need to share with you how delectable these really are, and that they are a must-try recipe. That is, of course, if you like carrots and cream cheese. ;-)

Turtle Cupcakes

Turtle Cupcakes

There’s something about turtles that I find so endearing. I don’t know if it’s their slow but determined way of getting about or how they can disappear into the ‘homes’ they carry on their backs. Either way, they’re a fascinating creature.

When you bite into this cupcake, you’ll find a chocolate turtle surprise! Hope you like my sweet version of these ancient fellows and definitely enjoy this decadent chocolate cupcake with a tall glass of milk.

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.
