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!

It is amazing what you can do with some candy, some frosting, a few vanilla cupcakes and some creativity. These Chinese takeout cupcakes are decorated to look just like the real thing – Chinese food. The lo mein is made from vanilla frosting complete with Laffy Taffy “broccoli” and “carrot bits.” The fried rice cupcakes are decorated with orange and yellow fruit chews, green jelly beans and rice cereal. These look so much like Chinese food that you have to see them to believe them!

Shirley Temple Cupcakes

These lip-smacking goodies look like they’ve popped up out of a 1950’s Technicolor fantasy flick and they taste as fine as their classical looks. Sweet and scrumptious, with a slightly caramelized top, the bright and shiny glazing with its grenadine and lemon extract mix, is a sensation. And then of course, it’s up to you to choose whether you want to keep the iconic maraschino cherry for last or gobble it up before you commence the mini-feast.

Rocket pop cupcakes

Rocket pops – those classic summer treats from the ice cream man – inspired this recipe. Remember those? They had a red layer, a white layer and blue layer, each flavored with a different type of sherbet? Well, these cupcakes come close to the real thing, color wise anyway. The cupcakes are vanilla flavored and dyed blue. After they are baked, white buttercream frosting and then red buttercream are layer on. Top off with a few sprinkles and you will have a very close replica of the rocket pop in cupcake form!
