Sweet Tea Vodka Lemonade Cupcakes

Sweet Tea Vodka Lemonade Cupcakes

This recipe is for vanilla cupcakes, just spiked with some sweet tea vodka and iced tea drink powder that gives the cake a great hint of sweet tea without being overwhelming.

The frosting is a remix of this whipped vanilla frosting made with lemonade powder and some fresh lemon juice too.  It’s a fluffy buttercream with the perfect amount of tartness and sweetness, especially if you’re someone who loves lemon.

Shamrock Shake Cupcakes

Shamrock Shake Cupcakes 2

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

These Shamrock Shake Cupcakes are inspired by the seasonal shakes and are a fun dessert to serve up around St Patrick’s Day.

The cupcakes are buttermilk cupcakes flavored with vanilla and peppermint extracts, then dyed with green food coloring. I used lightly sweetened whipped cream instead of regular frosting as a nod to the real milkshakes. Whipped cream is light and contrasts well with the cupcakes. Add a few green sprinkles and a short straw before serving, then enjoy!

Irish Coffee Cupcakes

Irish Coffee Cupcakes

This is a great treat to bring to work on St. Paddy’s day: it won’t get you buzzed, but you get a little taste of liquor. For those of you who don’t know, Irish coffee is coffee spiked with sugar, whiskey and sometimes Irish cream, then topped with thick cream.

This whipped cream is lightly sweetened and spiked with whiskey or Irish cream. Topping the cupcakes with some chocolate syrup adds a nice sweetness to this barely sweet cupcake. Slàinte!

Thin Mints S’Mores Cupcakes

Thin Mints S'Mores Cupcakes

It’s the most wonderful time of the yeaaar…no, it’s not Christmas – it’s Girl Scouts cookie season! And there’s only one thing better than a plain Thin Mint: a Thin Mints s’more.

These Thin Mints s’more inspired-cupcakes have a Thin Mints cookie crust (to mimic a s’mores crust) at the bottom of a mint chocolate cupcake, which is topped with homemade marshmallow fluff. Before you toast the marshmallow, top them off with a Thin Mint cut in half and made into a mini s’mores for the perfect topping.
