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.

Margarita Cupcakes

Margarita Cupcakes

We’re eating our margs today, ok? These cupcakes with tequila? They’re for cinco de mayo // the cult obsession with margaritas. Proud member right here. I know you are too.

What I have for you today is a very basic lime cupcake recipe. And by basic, I very much do not mean “boring”– I mean simple! Crazy simple. So much so that when I taught this recipe the other night/spilled confectioners’ sugar all over the counter like I do EVERY SINGLE TIME, readers went totally bonkers over their simplicity. That may just be in my head but I swear they’re really easy.

Samoa Cupcakes

Samoa Cupcakes

You guys, we have an EPIC cupcake today! Like epic in the way of chocolate coconut cupcakes with caramel coconut frosting garnished with coconut flakes and chocolate drizzles. aka SAMOA cupcakes!! My favorite Girl Scout Cookies in a cupcake form.

When thinking of it, I debated whether to make a salted caramel cupcake base or a chocolate cupcake but clearly chocolate won since I thought the caramel/coconut flavors will standout with a chocolate cupcake. And they sure do! The chocolate cupcake is decadent and amazing especially with the coconut flavors in it. The frosting is a sweet caramel and coconut whipped buttercream.

To finish off the cupcakes, drizzle more chocolate (and caramel!) along with some toasted coconut. If you happen to have some leftover cookies, then chop up some and throw them in the cupcake before baking but I know that is asking too much because really, who has leftover Girl Scout cookies?

Pink Champagne and Gold Leaf Cupcakes

Pink Champagne and Gold Leaf Cupcakes

One of my enduring obsessions is decorating cakes with edible gold leaf. It’s just so pretty and I’m drawn to the organic nature of its application. You probably know by now, I love a filled cupcake! I made some pink champagne pastry cream and used it to bring even more champagne flavor to the cakes.

They’re good for all celebrations – large and small! The cakes get a big dose of bubbly in the batter, and the pastry cream holds obvious fruity champagne flavor. If you’re not inclined to purchase champagne, then cream soda may be used in its place, and champagne flavoring oil may be added for a non-alcoholic version.

Vegan Banana Blueberry Cupcakes

Vegan Banana Blueberry Cupcakes

Spring is here and these Vegan Banana Blueberry Cupcakes are just what you need!  A banana cake with a hint of cinnamon, bursting with warm blueberries and topped with frosting!  Yum!

I just couldn’t help myself when these came hot out of the oven!  I had to eat one…or two.  Even without the frosting they make great muffins perfect for lunch boxes or picnics. But let’s be honest, adding frosting just makes every better.
