Strawberry Daiquiri Cupcakes

Just like the drink that these cupcakes are named after, these treats are for adults only. The cupcake batter contains strawberry liquor, as well as more traditional ingredients like flour, salt, sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla extract, among other things. The frosting also contains alcohol. In this case, white rum, as well as pureed strawberries, strawberry extract, butter, salt and sugar. After the cupcakes are baked, have cooled, and are coated in frosting, feel free to add some colorful sprinkles or umbrellas!

Fresh Cherry Limeade Cupcakes

Limes and cherries seem like a crazy combination, but once you try them together (like in Sonic’s cherry limeade, which was the inspiration for these sweet treats) you will understand how well they mesh. The lime is in the cupcake batter, in the form of both zest and juice, alongside cupcake staples like flour, buttermilk and sugar. The cherries are in the frosting – the recipe calls for butter, pitted fresh cherries and sugar. Bake, frost and fall in love with this formerly “crazy” combination.

Sometimes you need a cupcake that is slightly different, but not too outrageous. These chocolate cupcakes (made the traditional way out of cocoa powder, sugar, buttermilk, flour and other items) are as “standard” as they come. The uniqueness lies in the frosting, which is a mixture of grapefruit (both zest and juice), cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and salt. Once these have been baked and frosted, top them with a bit of chocolate dipped candied grapefruit peel before serving.

Here’s how to enjoy a cuppa even if you don’t really do high tea. And since you might not really be in Britain, it’s probably all right to admit these delicacies are not really cupcakes, but in fact highly comestible scones. Orange cranberry scones baked in tea cups to be precise. Made with dried cranberries and flavored with a hint of orange (or chocolate chips, raisins or currants) they are worth every calorie gained from them.

Fruity Fourth Cupcakes

Although these Fruity Fourth Cupcakes have a fourth of July theme, they can be made and enjoyed any time of the year. The cupcakes themselves are made from a boxed white cake mix to which sour cream, vegetable oil, buttermilk, vanilla extract and eggs are added. The frosting is simple as well, a “whipped topping” made from cream cheese, whipping cream and several other ingredients. The fruit in the name of the recipe goes right on top of the frosting. You won’t be able to resist eating these right away!

Mini Red Velvet Cupcakes with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting

Red velvet cupcakes are a holiday classic, although they can be made (and enjoyed) any time of the year. These are made with standard red velvet cake ingredients, including cocoa powder, baking soda, sugar, eggs, buttermilk, flour, vanilla extract and red gel food coloring. The main difference is that they are made in a mini cupcake pan instead of a standard one, and that they are topped with orange cream cheese frosting and candied blueberries.

The richness of sweet potatoes makes them a perfect autumn and winter treat. The ones in this particular recipe have maple cream cheese frosting that is topped with a dash of cinnamon, for both color and flavor. The cupcakes themselves are made from a mixture of sweet potatoes (of course), flour, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, sour cream, vanilla extract and several other ingredients. Altogether, these treats are great on a cool winter day!

Bright and beautiful, these Orange Cupcakes are the perfect reminder of sunny summer days. Don’t worry if you can’t find any fresh oranges around, you can always use orange extract instead. This is a quick and simple recipe perfect for the amateur or home baker. The cream cheese frosting topping is the perfect counter balance to the zesty orange flavor. One bite and you instantly be reminded of an orange creaminess.
