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!

I’m a huge chocolate cake fan, but I also love vanilla. So what’s a vanilla loving girl or guy to do around the holidays that are full of red velvet…aka chocolate cake?

Pink velvet!

The perfect festive treat when you really crave a moist vanilla cupcake.

This small batch moist pink velvet cupcake recipe is an absolute perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day…or any day! Top them off with whipped cream cheese frosting and festive heart sprinkles for an extra special and flavorful treat!

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.

Rainbow Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting

Rainbow Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting

Two words: rainbow cupcakes.

While the festive colors may have been what caught your eye, I guarantee it’s the sugar cookie-esque taste that will grab your taste buds’ attention. Cupcakes that taste like sugar cookies? Yes indeed!

These light, buttery, impossibly moist cupcakes star six layers of rainbow colors that bake up into a centerpiece-worthy treat perfect for birthdays, St. Patrick’s Day, and any other ordinary or extraordinary occasion in need of a little color and a whole lot of flavor.

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.

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!

What better way to start off the week than with a tart and tangy taste of sugary sweet goodness? These raspberry lemon cupcakes offer the perfect combination of sweet and sour, blending sugar, lemon and raspberry together for an all-over delectable flavor. Inject a bit of tart, raspberry curd into these expertly crafted lemon cupcakes, add a bit of raspberry buttercream and enjoy a delicious blend of flavors fit for a breezy summer afternoon, even if it’s the middle of winter.

Coconut Cupcakes

Coconut Cupcakes

Even if you’re not a huge fan of coconut, this recipe is worth a try (just leave off the shredded topping). And if you are a coconut lover, you’re in for one delicious treat. Coconut is great on (and in) baked goods, and these tiny cakes are no exception. Paired with a bit of lovely vanilla extract, almond extract, and a fluffy cream cheese frosting, they’re likely to knock your coconutty socks off. So if it’s getting cold where you are, be sure to grab a back-up pair ;).
