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!

Matcha Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting

Matcha Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting

These are probably one of the most elegant and ladylike cupcakes I’ve ever made.

I love the combination of white chocolate and matcha. The creamy and sweet vanilla flavor of the white chocolate and the earthy green flavor of the green tea really pairs well. Since buttercream frosting is already so sweet, I was quite wary of adding white chocolate into buttercream frosting. So I opted for a cream cheese frosting and it really helped to cut the sweetness. Alternatively, you could just top the cupcakes with melted white chocolate and call it a day.

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.

Vanilla bean and chocolate spice. Can you think of a better, more wintery combination? We can’t. These cupcakes meld the combo perfectly with real vanilla bean and a touch of chili pepper. The recipe even wraps up these yummy packages with beautiful orange sugar flowers. If orange doesn’t capture your emotions about these cupcakes, opt for another color and make this recipe work for any occasion.

Lovely Lavender and Matcha Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting


There are so many different cupcake flavors in the world that it can be tricky to choose one to bake. However, if you’re tired of the more traditional flavors like chocolate and vanilla, these lavender and matcha ones might do the trick. Matcha is a finely ground (or milled) green tea powder that is normally used to make tea, but works just as well in baking. These cupcakes contain matcha, as well as many other, more “traditional” ingredients. What about the lavender, you ask? Well that’s placed on top of the cream cheese frosting!
