Chocolate Cupcakes with Caramel Buttercream

Chocolate Cupcakes with Caramel Buttercream

If you’re already in the market for a chocolatey sweet treat this week, these chocolate cupcakes will hit the spot like no other. Based on a rich, buttermilk cake recipe, these babies are loaded with chunks of chocolate, and if that’s not enough decadence for you, wait until you see the frosting recipe. Powdered sugar, butter and salted caramel are the only ingredients you’ll need to whip up this tasty, creamy topping. Still not satisfied? Pop a chocolate truffle atop the frosting, and call 911, because you’re in for a chocolate overdose.

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes

Pink lemonade may not be a typical “winter” flavor, but it’s a delicious one! The greatest thing about this recipe, besides the little taste of summer during otherwise chilly months, is that these guys are so easy to make. A little bit of lemon zest, a little bit of food coloring, a dash of love and perhaps some pink sprinkles are all they take. Convinced yet? We’d also like to point out they’re perfect for Valentine’s Day. Go ahead, get romantic.

Coconut Angel Food Cupcakes

Coconut Angel Food Cupcakes

We’ve been all about warming comfort cakes here at The Cupcake Blog lately, but light snacking is important too. It’s January, and we’ve all made resolutions for the new year, some involving shedding a few pounds. If that’s the case, these cupcakes fit the bill. Based on angel food cake with a light coconut flavor infusion, these cupcakes are light, airy and perfect for a sweet treat without that overwhelming full feeling. Plus, they look charmingly similar to the snow piles from last weekend’s #Blizzard2016! Not a huge fan of coconut? Keep in mind the taste is very light here, but if coconut turns you all the way off, substitute vanilla flavor instead, and enjoy these cakes just the same!

Gingerbread Cupcakes

Gingerbread Cupcakes

Gingerbread is most thought of around the Christmas season, but we’re milking this chilly weather flavor for everything we can with these gingerbread cupcakes. The cakes are a retake on classic sponge cake, enhanced by a little brown sugar, caramel and yummy spices. Top this combination with a cream cheese frosting to die for, and there’s no doubt friends and family will forget all about gingerbread’s Christmas connotation.

Chocolate Cupcakes with M&M Frosting

Chocolate Cupcakes with M&M Frosting

Blizzards, Blasts, McFlurries and the like have taught us that Americans love to mix candy in their already-sweet treats, which explains the inspiration for these cupcakes. Chocolate cupcakes, especially this recipe featuring coffee and dark chocolate cocoa powder, are luscious enough on their own, but top them with “PILES” of vanilla frosting laden with M&M candy, and we can’t think of one person who’d say no. Can you?
