Mini Bacon Herb Cupcakes with Cream


Cupcakes can be savory instead of sweet, as this recipe for Mini Bacon Herb Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting proves. These cupcakes are made from a mixture of sour cream, crumbled bacon, butter, chopped onions, pepper, self-rising flour and chopped herbs, likes parsley, sage, and thyme, although you can use whichever ones you please. Once these have baked in a mini muffin tin, top them with softened cream cheese and garnish with some herbs or more crumbled bacon. They make a perfect appetizer!

S’more Cupcakes


A basic s’more consists of graham crackers, chocolate squares and marshmallows. These cupcakes contain all three components, just in a slightly altered way. The bottom of the cupcake is a combination of shredded graham cracker bits, sugar and melted butter. The chocolate cupcake goes on top, and they are baked together. Once they emerge from the oven and cool off, each is topped with a thin layer of chocolate glaze and a heap of homemade marshmallow frosting. Toast the top with a kitchen torch for extra authenticity.

Copycat Hostess Cupcakes


Although Hostess cupcakes are back on the shelves, nothing is stopping you from making your own version of these popular treats. These Copycat Hostess Cupcakes look kind of like the real thing – they’re dipped in homemade chocolate glaze and filled with a cream filling made from heavy cream, butter, powdered sugar and shortening. The cupcake itself is flavored with dark cocoa powder and brewed coffee. Those two things alone result in a tasty cupcake, but once you add the filling and frosting, the results are heavenly!

7th Birthday Carnival Cupcake Tower


What’s cuter than a standard carnival-themed birthday cake? A carnival-themed cupcake tower, of course! These cute cupcakes are topped with magician hats and wands, the letter “S” (in honor of the birthday girl), the number 7 (once again, in honor of the birthday girl), admission “tickets,” and tiny boxes of popcorn — all made out of the frosting. To continue on with the theme, the frosting is in red and yellow, and there is a cake topper that resembles a tent. Cute and edible – that’s a winning a combination!

Spring Cupcakes


A standard vanilla cupcake can be transformed into something not-so-standard thanks to a little creativity, some sprinkles, and frosting in a few different colors. These particular ones have a spring theme that starts with green tinted buttercream frosting. A colorful flower (purple, blue, pink – your choice) made of royal icing is added to the top. Next, add on the sprinkles! The ones that you see here are colorful sugar sprinkles, but you can use whichever ones you choose.

Peach Bellini Cupcakes


A peach bellini is an alcoholic beverage that mainly consists of Prosecco sparking wine and peaches. Sometimes the peaches are fresh, while others, the taste of the peaches is the result of peach flavored alcohol. In the case of these cupcakes, the peaches are in the batter – in the form of jarred peaches, juice included, that have been diced into tiny pieces. The Prosecco is in the frosting, alongside butter, sugar and vanilla. You won’t be able to eat just one!

Kentucky Derby Pie Cupcakes


Kentucky Derby Pie is a traditional dessert served at (and around) the time of the Kentucky Derby. These cupcakes emulate that, down to the bourbon in the batter. The rest of the batter consists of flour, walnuts, chocolate chips, buttermilk, sugar, and many other ingredients. The frosting is a vanilla cream with bourbon added, and the glaze that goes on top of the frosting is a butter bourbon glaze. A few chopped walnuts and mini chocolate chips can be added as tasty decorations as well.

Smoked Sumatra Coffee Cupcakes


You’ve undoubtedly heard of smoked meats, like salmon and beef, and the results that you receive – jerky, in most cases. However, smoked cupcakes? Is that a real thing? Actually, yes, it is. These smoked cupcakes are made of cocoa powder, espresso powder, sugar, flour, and a bunch of the “standard” ingredients required of a typical chocolate cupcake. The only difference is that they are bathed in hickory smoke for an hour after they have been baked and cooled. Top them with coffee flavored Swiss meringue buttercream frosting after smoking them.

Lavender Honey Cupcakes


Lavender and honey collide in order to make a perfectly sweet cupcake with just a hint lavender (courtesy of the dried lavender mixed into the batter.) Yes, lavender can be used for more than making scented sachets and potpourri. These also contain flour, butter, eggs, sugar, honey, and several other more traditional ingredients. The frosting is a mixture of mascarpone, butter, honey, vanilla and powdered sugar. After frosting, sprinkle on a few bits of dried lavender for both color and flavor.

Mini Butterscotch Cone Dip Cupcakes Cones


There is no shortage of things that you can do with butterscotch – baking-wise, that is. These mini butterscotch come dip cupcakes are just what their name implies. They are cupcakes made with a white cake mix that are baked in ice cream cones. The next step involves frosting them with homemade buttercream frosting and placing them in the freezer for a bit so that the frosting can harden. Next, dip the tops in melted butterscotch and let them harden before serving. What a delectable treat!
