Matcha Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting

Matcha Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting

These are probably one of the most elegant and ladylike cupcakes I’ve ever made.

I love the combination of white chocolate and matcha. The creamy and sweet vanilla flavor of the white chocolate and the earthy green flavor of the green tea really pairs well. Since buttercream frosting is already so sweet, I was quite wary of adding white chocolate into buttercream frosting. So I opted for a cream cheese frosting and it really helped to cut the sweetness. Alternatively, you could just top the cupcakes with melted white chocolate and call it a day.

These may have started out as Easter Cupcakes, but since anything can happen on Friday, 13th, we think they’re perfect for this occasion too.

Anything goes, especially with these cupcakes, which are topped with homemade marshmallows, sprinkles, raspberries…you name it. No matter what else happens to you today, this part will be good.

Coconut Bird Nest Cupcakes

Coconut Bird Nest Cupcakes

Hi guys! I am re-doing another recipe from the archives again and bringing it some new life. These coconut cupcakes were made in March 2013 (that’s three years ago!!!) when I just started blogging and they have remained a favorite over time.

I’ve of course played with the recipe since then as I develop as a baker and the version below is the current awesome state of a soft coconut cupcake topped with sweet coconut whipped frosting. I love how the coconut flavor is intense in these because of coconut cream (instead of coconut milk) and it makes my coconut-loving heart happy!

Chocolate Mint Cupcakes

Chocolate Mint Cupcakes

Celebrate Earth Day with us with these yummy Chocolate Mint Cupcakes from Taste and Tell!

Mint lovers will go crazy for these Chocolate Mint Cupcakes that are topped with a smooth and creamy mint Swiss meringue buttercream frosting.

Here are some delicious Chocolate Mint Cupcakes that I made from the wonderful blog – How to Eat a Cupcake (update 2016 – sadly, this blog is no longer online). The only change I made to them was to leave out the chocolate chips, because I didn’t have any mini ones, and since I made mini sized cupcakes (see note at the top of the post), I knew regular chocolate chips would be just too big. These Chocolate Mint Cupcakes were awesome – and really – food bloggers rarely let me down!!

Mocha Cupcakes with Espresso Buttercream Frosting

Mocha Cupcakes with Espresso Buttercream Frosting

These mocha cupcakes are a chocolate and coffee lover’s dream come true. If you can’t get your day going without your favorite cup of coffee, you’re in luck.

 I might even go so far as to suggest that you should just skip your morning cup of coffee or trip to Starbucks and have one of these instead. The cake part itself strikes a subtle balance between light chocolate and a hint of creamy coffee. Not overwhelming on either end of the spectrum, and the combination results in a smooth, clean flavor, which is perfect for topping with espresso-spiked buttercream.

In either case, whip up a batch of these delectable chocolate cakes, topped with chocolate-dipped marshmallow frosting, and get super festive by opting for team-colored sprinkles or even plastic toppers. Whether you’re hosting or just bringing sweets, you’re sure to be the MVP of the snack collection.

P.S. We know Green Bay’s not in the Super Bowl. Give us some leeway!
