Is there anything better than buttermilk cupcakes topped with cherry buttercream frosting? The answer to that is – well, no. These cupcakes are the very top of the pile. They consist of buttermilk, cherries, eggs, flour, and a bunch of other “classic” ingredients. The main flavor comes from both the buttermilk and the cherries themselves. The frosting contains cherry brandy (which makes them an adults-only treat) as well as butter, sugar, salt and vanilla extract. Once you’ve eaten one of these treats, you’ll be hooked!

Just because someone is vegan, that doesn’t mean that subsist on vegetables and tofu. In fact, there are many vegan dessert recipes to choose from – including these coconut brulee cupcakes. The bottom layer is made from seven simple ingredients, including warm water to substitute for eggs, and almond milk instead of cow’s milk. The top layer consists of Earth Balance, almond milk, shredded coconut and brown sugar. It’s spread on while the cupcakes are still in the oven, and takes the place of frosting.
