Bailey's Truffle Cupcakes

We’re not sure we know anyone who doesn’t like truffles, and in honor of Mother’s Day, this Bailey’s truffle cupcake recipe takes the…well, the cupcake!

These cupcakes are truly a match made in chocolate and Bailey’s heaven, pairing a devil’s food cake with Bailey’s chocolate filling, Bailey’s ganache and topped with a luscious, gold flaked Bailey’s truffle. Chocolate coma, anyone?

Mint Julep Cupcakes with Buttercream Roses

Mint Julep Cupcakes with Buttercream Roses

It’s gonna be May (insert JT meme here), which means more than a few things, including flowers, Mother’s Day, the end of school and the Kentucky Derby, and….mint juleps.

While the drink itself is pretty delicious, we’re always a fan of a cocktail turned cupcake, and this one doesn’t let down. Spiked with Creme de Menthe and bourbon and topped with piped pink buttercream roses, we can’t think of a better way to welcome Justin Timberlake’s favorite month.

We could share unique, creative cupcake recipes all day, but sometimes classic is best, especially when chocolate is involved.

These chocolate cupcakes combine melted chocolate, cocoa powder and sour cream for a rich, creamy chocolatey taste that will be the highlight of any Saturday. If you’re up for it, the recipe even includes instructions for making fancy chocolate filigree toppers!

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!

Pink Champagne and Gold Leaf Cupcakes

Pink Champagne and Gold Leaf Cupcakes

One of my enduring obsessions is decorating cakes with edible gold leaf. It’s just so pretty and I’m drawn to the organic nature of its application. You probably know by now, I love a filled cupcake! I made some pink champagne pastry cream and used it to bring even more champagne flavor to the cakes.

They’re good for all celebrations – large and small! The cakes get a big dose of bubbly in the batter, and the pastry cream holds obvious fruity champagne flavor. If you’re not inclined to purchase champagne, then cream soda may be used in its place, and champagne flavoring oil may be added for a non-alcoholic version.

A Dozen Rose Cupcakes

A Dozen Rose Cupcakes
Even if you don’t make the sugar roses for these cupcakes, they are absolutely delicious and a chocolate lover’s dream come true. The centers are filled with rich chocolate ganache and the vanilla bean frosting swirl on top is a nice counter to all the chocolate. The recipe makes two dozen cupcakes, so you can keep one dozen and gift another (if you’re feeling generous).
Learning a new skill is exciting, and if you take the plunge into sugar flower-making, then be patient with yourself. The first flower may take a little longer to make than the rest, but that’s just a part of the learning process.

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting

These are some of the most decadent cupcakes I’ve ever made – and in such a good way! They are rich and luscious and oh so irresistibly chocolatey! This is definitely one of my new favorite chocolate cupcake recipes (and if you want to make it more of a milder milk chocolate cupcake just reduce the cocoa 2 Tbsp and up the flour 2 more Tbsp, I tested them out both ways but definitely preferred the darker version here paired with the sweetness of the raspberry frosting). They are somewhat dense and deliciously fudgy and you’ll want to make them again and again.

Strawberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Strawberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

These Strawberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting are perfect! So moist and fluffy! And they are an amazing copy of one my favorite cupcakes!

So I think I’ve mentioned it before, but in case I haven’t here’s my little secret: Even though I bake mostly from scratch these days, I grew up on box mixes and store bought cakes.

So I set out to replicate the flavor of that cake mix, but from scratch. I’m pretty sure I hit the nail on the head. I’m in love with these cupcakes! I even put “love” on top of them.

Honey and Orange Cupcakes

Honey & Orange Cupcakes

What an oh-so-sweet combination honey and orange makes, and there’s no better way to serve this combo than in a cupcake. What makes these cupcakes so extra special and cute? They’re topped with adorable little marzipan bees! These babies are bursting with orange, including orange juice, orange zest and orange extract, and even the buttercream topping has a touch of orange flavor. If you’re in the market for a refreshing, slightly healthy sweet treat, you’ve stumbled upon gold.
