If you’re a true coconut lover, this is your cupcake!
These cupcakes have three coconut elements: filling, frosting and candy topping. My favorite of the three may be the marshmallow coconut filling. It’s a combination of prepared marshmallow cream and cream of coconut – so easy to make and so good!
They’re light. They’re moist. They’re loaded with raisi… I kid, I kid! Raisins in carrot cupcakes should be illegal. And I’m not looking for any legal woes here, so let’s just keep the ol’ unwelcome wrinkled snacks where they belong… covered in chocolate and baked into cookies.
While the cupcakes are moist and the cream cheese frosting is as tangy and smooth as ever, I’d be remiss to not draw attention to those edible toppers. Because we all know carrot cupcakes can only be considered complete when they’re crowned with a candy melt carrot. Preheat your oven and get that cold glass of milk ready because these beauties are ready for their close-up (on your dessert table)!

Moist homemade vanilla funfetti cupcakes, topped off with creamy vanilla buttercream frosting and extra sprinkles! More sprinkles are always a good thing!
Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, special occasion or a just a day ending in y…you need these funfetti cupcakes in your life. And, since this recipe makes only 8 cupcakes, you won’t have a ton lying around taunting you to eat later!

Honestly, words cannot describe how much love I have for these Coconut Banana 3-Milk Cupcakes. They’re simply perfect in every way.
The cupcake itself, is all on delish. It’s vanillay, bananay and hinted with a subtle touch of coconut flavor. And oh that Nutella buttercream, this is a recipe that everyone should have up their sleeve. It’s perfect for pretty much any cake, cupcake, brownie, baked doughnut, whatever. It’s flipping good.

These may have started out as Easter Cupcakes, but since anything can happen on Friday, 13th, we think they’re perfect for this occasion too.
Anything goes, especially with these cupcakes, which are topped with homemade marshmallows, sprinkles, raspberries…you name it. No matter what else happens to you today, this part will be good.

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?

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.

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.

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.
