Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries

Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries

Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me.  Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal.

The cakes are just sweet enough, and have a light, fluffy crumb – the perfect vehicle for rich chocolate buttercream. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match. I’ve been looking for something different to serve for Valentine’s dessert, and this is definitely different.

Deep, Dark and Rosy Red Velvet Cupcakes

Deep, Dark and Rosy Red Velvet Cupcakes

I know that a lot of people only associate red velvet with Christmas, but for me, red velvet is definitely a February thing. And for some reason this year, I really went full force with the V-Day eats.

These cupcakes were just the start, I loved them. I haven’t said that yet, but I really did love them. The chocolate flavor is awesome and subtle light flavors of the roses balance the chocolate out. AND that cream cheese frosting. Whoa.

That’s maybe the best thing ever. Seriously, so good.

Skinny Cherry Cupcakes for Valentine’s Day

Skinny Cherry Cupcakes for Valentine's Day

I am not a big “skinny” dessert fan. If I’m going to eat dessert, I prefer it to be quite satisfying. And usually, skinny desserts leave me wanting more.

But not this time. Although, really, I’m not sure how YOU qualify a dessert as skinny. So we will call these skinny-ish, or skinnier cupcakes. If you’re looking for a skinnier dessert recipe this New Year, give these cupcakes a try!

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Every Saturday is a day of celebration, and this one is no different. We’ve settled on these strawberry chocolate chip cupcakes, originally created for a proposal, to sweeten up this Saturday morning, afternoon, evening or all three…in case you need a little extra today.

Bitter dark chocolate is perfectly balanced with strawberry flavor, including fresh strawberry puree in the cake, which also makes it extra moist. And it’s even better when you eat them straight out of the oven while the chocolate is still gooey! We won’t judge you.

It’s easy to underestimate the impact of small gestures, so put yourself out there, and declare all the love you have for your friends and family. Make them your Valentines, and make them these cupcakes as a sweet gesture to remember you by.

Because nothing says love like an incredibly moist chocolate cupcake topped with fluffy, soft meringue and a candy heart reading “PUGS & KITTENS”. They deserve it. And YOU deserve it.

Friday the 13th Slasher Smores Cupcakes

Friday the 13th Slasher Smores Cupcakes

Happy Friday the 13th! This is actually the first of two this year, and it rightfully deserves its own cupcake. This one should do the trick.

While coming events might rightfully seem more frightening than a traditionally unlucky day, Friday the 13th will always be famous in its own right, and we think if the day is famous, it’s worth celebrating with a cupcake, like this gory vegan tribute to Jason himself.

Hot Fudge Sundae Cupcakes

Hot Fudge Sundae Cupcakes

It may be a little on the chilly side to indulge in actual ice cream, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a hot fudge sundae anyway.

This cupcake recipe is the perfect way to get the sundae taste you’re craving without the drop in body temperature ice cream can bring. So instead of turning up the heat and going for the Ben & Jerry’s anyway, try this on for size!

Gluten Free Peppermint Chocolate Souffle Cupcakes

Gluten Free Peppermint Chocolate Souffle Cupcakes

These flourless cupcakes weren’t only the best gluten-free cupcakes I’ve ever had, they were one of the top cupcakes I’ve ever had! Although they are flourless, these cakes are the opposite of dense.

By whipping the egg whites and gently folding them into the batter, you’re left with a light and fluffy cake which has an incredibly decadent, rich chocolate flavor without being overly sweet.
