Licorice Delight: Vanilla Almond & Anise Cupcakes

Licorice Delight: Vanilla Almond & Anise Cupcakes

If you’re not a fan of black jelly beans or licorice that isn’t red, you certainly won’t be the first person on the planet. But these anise cupcakes somehow manage to capture just enough of the licorice flavor to thrill the tastebuds instead of turning them off.

Think vanilla almond cupcakes topped with whipped vanilla bean frosting, spiked with just a touch of anise flavoring. It seems like these treats might be the perfect amount of sweet and the perfect amount of “I only need one.”

If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, get ready to have quite a collection of hearts on your hands with these “mancakes.”

These sweets swap out the “sugar, spice and everything nice” in favor of a more modern set of puppy dog tails: beer, bacon and cheese. If you’re at all in tune with the world of food festivals, you know this combination, especially as a cupcake, is a no-brainer.

Irish Coffee Cupcakes

Irish Coffee Cupcakes

This is a great treat to bring to work on St. Paddy’s day: it won’t get you buzzed, but you get a little taste of liquor. For those of you who don’t know, Irish coffee is coffee spiked with sugar, whiskey and sometimes Irish cream, then topped with thick cream.

This whipped cream is lightly sweetened and spiked with whiskey or Irish cream. Topping the cupcakes with some chocolate syrup adds a nice sweetness to this barely sweet cupcake. Slàinte!

Vegan Love: Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Rich Chocolate Frosting

Vegan Love: Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Rich Chocolate Frosting

Have you ever tried a vegan cupcake? The truth is, had I not been the one who made these cupcakes, I would honestly never guess that they were dairy and egg free, because they are perfectly decadent.

Both taste and texture went way beyond my expectations, truly (particularly the cake texture–so incredibly moist). Trust me, whether you’re vegan or not, these cupcakes are frickin’ yummy.

Chile Mocha Cupcakes

Chile Mocha Cupcakes

So here is my new obsession; these chile mocha cupcakes. They are of course inspired by the new Starbucks fall drink, the chile mocha.

A sweet combination of cocoa, cinnamon with a small kick from ancho and cayenne chile. The true definition of sweet and spicy if you ask me and just what you need for those mornings when you need an extra kick. Like today!!!
