Pretzel Stout Cupcakes

Pretzel Stout Cupcakes

With warmer weather comes a surplus of patio and balcony parties. We’re donning tank tops, drinking cool beers and forgetting we ever needed those heavy jackets. And pretzels are the perfect companion to that beer. Even in cupcake form.

This genius recipe combines chocolate cupcakes with a stout brew and tops it all off with cream cheese frosting, pretzels and chocolate drizzle. If that’s not enough to round out a party, we aren’t sure what is!

Margarita Cupcakes

Margarita Cupcakes

Happy Cinco de Mayo! As a designated drinking holiday in the United States (inexplicably), it’s only right that we share a margarita cupcake recipe in celebration.

These cupcakes are margaritas in perfect cupcake form, featuring tequila spiked cupcakes topped with tequila lime frosting and a touch of fleur-de-sel. Everyone knows it’s better not to indulge on an empty stomach, so be sure to eat a few before party-time!

Decadent chocolate cupcakes stuffed with creamy Nutella and topped with fresh raspberry frosting. And yes, they’re just as delicious as they look.

Say hello to the most decadent treat to emerge from my oven this year. I know, I know… diets and resolutions and cleanses are all the rage right now. But let me tell you, these babies are worth every rich, decadent, Nutella and raspberry filled bite.

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.

Mancakes: Beer, Bacon & Cheese Cupcakes

Mancakes: Beer, Bacon & Cheese Cupcakes

If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, get ready to have quite a collection of hearts on your hands with these “mancakes.”

These sweets swap out the “sugar, spice and everything nice” in favor of a more modern set of puppy dog tails: beer, bacon and cheese. If you’re at all in tune with the world of food festivals, you know this combination, especially as a cupcake, is a no-brainer.

Banana Smoothie Cupcakes

Banana Smoothie Cupcakes

Maybe it is almost bikini season, but it’s not true what they say, that you can’t have your smoothie and eat it too. These banana smoothie cupcakes take the illusion of healthy eating to a whole new level!

There is an ample amount of banana in these goodies, and the frosting is yogurt based, but you’ll still get your dose of sugar in the chocolate chips and other cupcake ingredients. The important thing here is that you can still say you had a banana smoothie.

Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes with Avocado Buttercream Frosting

Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes with Avocado Buttercream Frosting

By themselves, these vegan chocolate avocado cupcakes are a perfect representation of a delicious, moist cupcake with the perfect crumb. But with the avocado buttercream? Game changer.

This combination is absolutely lethal. The avocado taste in the buttercream is subtle, yet present, and has such a fantastic natural coloring. I would seriously take this avocado buttercream over the traditional buttercream any day. Any day. It is that good.

Cookies & Cream Cupcakes

Cookies & Cream Cupcakes

While you may have had Cookies & Cream in cupcake form before, we doubt it was this packed with the deliciousness of Oreo cookies.

Based on half an Oreo, baked with Oreo chunks inside and topped buttercream cream cheese frosting with Oreo crumbles and another cookie half, THIS is what they meant by Cookies & Cream.

Strawberry Pop Tart Cupcakes

Strawberry Pop Tart Cupcakes

It may be more acceptable to love cupcakes than Pop Tarts as a grown up with a day job, but this recipe shakes up that idea and proves we can love and enjoy both…at the same time.

Top vanilla cupcakes with homemade strawberry buttercream and a Pop Tart piece to bring a whole new level of yummy to Friday breakfast.
