Red Velvet Birthday Cupcakes


Red Velvet cupcakes are classics. They usually consist of cocoa powder and red food colored (hence the name). This particular recipe also includes sour cream (to make them moist) and vanilla extract (to enhance the flavor.) Once you have combined these ingredients, along with the other ones, baked them and allowed them to cool, top with a homemade cream cheese frosting, as well as a few sprinkles. To make them even more festive, bake them in cute birthday or holiday-themed cupcake liners.

Cosmetic Cupcakes


If you’ve been on the lookout for inspiration for cute, yet unusual cupcake toppers, then these are exactly what you’ve been hunting for. These fondant (a stiff frosting that is moldable like clay, yet edible) toppers resemble cosmetics, or makeup, if you will. Various shades of “lipstick” and “eye shadow” (plus an applicator) sit on top of tasty vanilla buttercream frosting. The cupcake underneath is a simple vanilla, but you can make them chocolate, honey, or the flavor of your choice.

Birthday Cupcakes in a Cone


The only thing better than celebrating your birthday with cupcakes is celebrating it with cupcakes baked in an ice cream cone. These particular ones are vanilla flavored, but you can make them from any batter or flavor combination that you choose, as long as they are baked in ice cream cones. Because the cones need to stay upright while baking, you need to use standard, flat bottomed ones, not sugar cones. However, the results are worth it!

Lavender Colored Cupcakes


A themed party can be made infinitely better with color-coding. This means keeping the napkins, drinks, straws, plates and cups all one color. In this case, that color is lavender, and the theme extends to the cupcakes. Turning your formerly bland colored cupcakes a lovely shade of lavender involves starting with a white or vanilla cake mix. (White cake mixes will work better than vanilla, simply due to their base color.) Add in a few drops of food coloring before combining the ingredients, and voila!

Red, White and Blue Cupcakes


There’s nothing more patriotic than the classic combination of red, white and blue. These cupcakes definitely qualify, with their red, white and blue batter and matching colorful frosting. The cupcakes are made by mixing up a batch of white cupcake batter and dying portions of it red and blue with gel paste coloring. Layering the batter by color, baking these treats and then piping on red, white and blue icing once they cool results in a very patriotic treat!

Símore 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!
