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.

Black, White and Orange Vanilla Bean Cupcakes with Spiced Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

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!

Sunflower Cupcakes for our Anniversary


Turning cupcakes into sunflowers is not an easy task, but it can be done with a little practice. These particular cupcakes are made with a vanilla batter that include both a scraped vanilla bean and some vanilla extract to really enhance the flavor. A whole Oreo cookie is placed in the center of each to make up the center of the flower, while piped yellow frosted petals are placed around its perimeter. A small m&m candy decorated to look like a ladybug adds an extra touch of authenticity.
