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!

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.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Red Velvet Cupcakes

The secret to the color of red velvet cupcakes is actually no secret (hint: it’s a ton of red food dye), but the perfect cake (red or otherwise) requires much more than a dump of dye! In fact, it requires finesse. It requires a delicate hand. And most importantly…it requires a delicious recipe that’s been tried and tried again. A good red velvet cupcake makes you feel like you should be WALKING on red velvet, like the superstar that you are. This particular recipe is so perfect that fancy topping isn’t even necessary – a simple buttercream will do. The cupcakes do all the talking for themselves. Listen up.
