Carrot and Orange Cupcakes with Orange Brown Sugar Buttercream

Carrot and Orange Cupcakes with Orange Brown Sugar Buttercream

‘Tis the season for carrot cake, and there are sure to be hundreds of recipes for cupcake versions too, but we like this refreshing twist on an old favorite.

Start with…well…carrot cake, and add a bit of orange zest and juice, top that off with brown sugar buttercream also spiked with orange, and you may find carrot cake can be more appetizing than you previously thought!

Who else is ready for spring? It’s taking a little too long this year, right? The groundhog may have issued us another few weeks, but these carrot cake cupcakes can bring you everyone’s favorite season a little early.

These cupcakes scream Spring, and don’t worry they are as easy to decorate as they are to make. And the recipe is modified to make 4 big cupcakes, rather than 12 regular sized, because who doesn’t want a bigger cupcake? What’s more, they can even be made in a toaster oven!

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.

Pistachio Cupcakes

Pistachio Cupcakes

My husband labeled these as one of the best cupcakes he’s ever eaten and I’d have to say I’m a huge fan myself!

They remind me so much of a good pistachio ice cream (one of my favorite flavors) and I love that they are perfectly soft and tender. Plus that buttercream is what dreams are made of! If you like pistachios don’t pass these by! They’re such a decadently delicious cupcake!

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.

Easter may be long gone, but carrot cake, in all its glory, will stick around all year, and if you’re a fan, this cupcake recipe is for you. Four words: Maple. Cream. Cheese. Frosting.

Even if you choose to pass on the tiny carrot toppers (we don’t see why you would – they’re still carrot cakes), these babies are still loaded with all the right ingredients to finish off a weekend right or start a week on the right foot.
