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.

Deep, Dark and Rosy Red Velvet Cupcakes

Deep, Dark and Rosy Red Velvet Cupcakes

I know that a lot of people only associate red velvet with Christmas, but for me, red velvet is definitely a February thing. And for some reason this year, I really went full force with the V-Day eats.

These cupcakes were just the start, I loved them. I haven’t said that yet, but I really did love them. The chocolate flavor is awesome and subtle light flavors of the roses balance the chocolate out. AND that cream cheese frosting. Whoa.

That’s maybe the best thing ever. Seriously, so good.

Pink Rose Cupcakes for your Sweet Valentine

Pink Rose Cupcakes for your Sweet Valentine

Nothing says Valentines Day more than roses and chocolate! This is the kind of rose I’d like to receive on Valentines Day. How about you?

Chocolate and raspberry together are a great combination, topped off with Buttercream Frosting and tinted pink with Americolor soft pink. Either vanilla extract or raspberry would make these super delicious.

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Every Saturday is a day of celebration, and this one is no different. We’ve settled on these strawberry chocolate chip cupcakes, originally created for a proposal, to sweeten up this Saturday morning, afternoon, evening or all three…in case you need a little extra today.

Bitter dark chocolate is perfectly balanced with strawberry flavor, including fresh strawberry puree in the cake, which also makes it extra moist. And it’s even better when you eat them straight out of the oven while the chocolate is still gooey! We won’t judge you.

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.
