Samoa Cupcakes

Samoa Cupcakes

You guys, we have an EPIC cupcake today! Like epic in the way of chocolate coconut cupcakes with caramel coconut frosting garnished with coconut flakes and chocolate drizzles. aka SAMOA cupcakes!! My favorite Girl Scout Cookies in a cupcake form.

When thinking of it, I debated whether to make a salted caramel cupcake base or a chocolate cupcake but clearly chocolate won since I thought the caramel/coconut flavors will standout with a chocolate cupcake. And they sure do! The chocolate cupcake is decadent and amazing especially with the coconut flavors in it. The frosting is a sweet caramel and coconut whipped buttercream.

To finish off the cupcakes, drizzle more chocolate (and caramel!) along with some toasted coconut. If you happen to have some leftover cookies, then chop up some and throw them in the cupcake before baking but I know that is asking too much because really, who has leftover Girl Scout cookies?

Coconut Bird Nest Cupcakes

Coconut Bird Nest Cupcakes

Hi guys! I am re-doing another recipe from the archives again and bringing it some new life. These coconut cupcakes were made in March 2013 (that’s three years ago!!!) when I just started blogging and they have remained a favorite over time.

I’ve of course played with the recipe since then as I develop as a baker and the version below is the current awesome state of a soft coconut cupcake topped with sweet coconut whipped frosting. I love how the coconut flavor is intense in these because of coconut cream (instead of coconut milk) and it makes my coconut-loving heart happy!

Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes

Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes

If you like chocolate covered cherries, you are going to love these Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes. A delicate spongy cupcake filled with cherry preserves and topped with cherry buttercream frosting. These are sure to be a crowd-pleaser!

Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes recipe highlights:

This recipe was inspired by my favorite candy, chocolate covered cherries.

The cupcake is full of chocolate flavor and kept moist with the help of oil and butter.

The frosting is a simple buttercream that is flavored with cherry preserves. Each cupcake gets a generous filling of cherry preserves and then topped with the cherry buttercream. There is no shortage of cherry flavor in this recipe.

A Dozen Rose Cupcakes

A Dozen Rose Cupcakes
Even if you don’t make the sugar roses for these cupcakes, they are absolutely delicious and a chocolate lover’s dream come true. The centers are filled with rich chocolate ganache and the vanilla bean frosting swirl on top is a nice counter to all the chocolate. The recipe makes two dozen cupcakes, so you can keep one dozen and gift another (if you’re feeling generous).
Learning a new skill is exciting, and if you take the plunge into sugar flower-making, then be patient with yourself. The first flower may take a little longer to make than the rest, but that’s just a part of the learning process.

Spring is in the air! So what does that mean for me?? Time to start making all things carrot cake, like these Carrot Cake Cookies, this Carrot Cake Cheesecake, a layered Carrot Cake (one of my all time favorite cakes), these Carrot Cake Bars, and why not some Carrot Cake Pancakes, and of course these perfectly fun and irresistible Carrot Cake Cupcakes!

Don’t you just love these tiny gold bunnies? They are one of my new favorite Easter decoration and they are actually a toy :). I just spray painted them gold.

There’s something just wonderful about the bold, sweet flavors of blood oranges. Make sure you grab some before they are out of season and make some baked goods!

These cupcakes use my favorite chocolate cupcake recipe as a base and it’s boasting with sweet orange zest and dark chocolate made richer with a hint of coffee. Topped with a blood orange frosting (isn’t the color gorgeous??), they are finished with decorative edible candied blood oranges dipped in chocolate.

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting

These are some of the most decadent cupcakes I’ve ever made – and in such a good way! They are rich and luscious and oh so irresistibly chocolatey! This is definitely one of my new favorite chocolate cupcake recipes (and if you want to make it more of a milder milk chocolate cupcake just reduce the cocoa 2 Tbsp and up the flour 2 more Tbsp, I tested them out both ways but definitely preferred the darker version here paired with the sweetness of the raspberry frosting). They are somewhat dense and deliciously fudgy and you’ll want to make them again and again.

Thin Mint Fudge Cupcakes

Thin Mint Fudge Cupcakes

Thin Mint Fudge Cupcakes with chocolate minty cookie frosting and a layer of hot fudge sauce, yum!  These are a dream come true!  My friend ate one last night and she said “This was the best thing I’ve ever had.”

Since I only used the really fine cookie crumbs for the frosting, I used the larger pieces as “sprinkles” after I piped out the frosting.  No crumb left behind :)

Cinnamon Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

Moist cinnamon pancake cupcakes with maple cream cheese frosting and mini pancake toppers! Enjoy breakfast for dessert!

I’ve always been a huge fan of breakfast. I enjoy it throughout the day. But I’ve only occasionally incorporated it into dessert. I’m not sure why that is. So, I needed things to change.
