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.

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.

CHINESE TAKEOUT CUPCAKES


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!

DIY Tutorial: Graduation Cupcakes


Decorating cupcakes is a breeze, thanks to a little ingenuity and some seemingly random candies. These graduation cupcakes are first coated with vanilla buttercream frosting. Then, the fun begins. You need fudge covered graham cracker cookies, Oreo Funstix cookies, red M&M candies, mini Reese’s peanut butter cups, thinly sliced fruit roll-ups and decorating gel to hold all of the components together. Once you have assembled the edible graduation caps on the cupcakes, they are ready to be served and enjoyed!

Ice Cream Topped Angel Food Cupcakes


Ice cream is a classic summer treat – but these ice cream topped cupcakes may just take over that honor. These angel food cupcakes (made from a boxed mix – nothing complicated) are topped with ice cream. But, it’s not just ANY ice cream. Rather, it’s vanilla ice cream that has been mixed with either homemade strawberry sauce or homemade blueberry sauce. You can leave one portion of the ice cream unmixed in order to have a batch festive red, white and blue patriotic treats.

LOVE HEART CUPCAKES


A simple cupcake is made even sweeter, thanks to the addition of a red fondant heart and some edible silver pearls. Once you have combined the ingredients, poured the batter into a series of heart covered cupcake liners and baked them, it is time for the fun to begin. Roll out your white and red fondant frostings (not together, of course – keep them separate) and cut out the decorative bits that you need. Assemble, add on a little raspberry jam, and then enjoy!

SUGAR AND SPICE CUPCAKES


Sugar and Spice Cupcakes are perfect for any occasion. They are simple yet elegant at the same time. Vanilla pudding and sour cream give the cupcake an incredibly moist and luxurious texture while the pumpkin pie spice elevates it to a whole new level of tasty. They are topped with a vanilla spiced butter cream and then sprinkled with some coarse sprinkling sugar at the end for a glimmering glitzy look.

Easter Cupcakes


Carrot cake cupcakes and cream cheese frosting combine to make these adorable Easter themed cupcakes. The carrot cake batter contains a few unique ingredients: pineapple, pecans, coconut, and, of course, carrots. The homemade buttercream frosting is used in its original color to make the nests (add a few mini Cadbury eggs for effect) and tinted yellow to make the Easter chick cupcakes. A few extra details, like bits of chocolate for the eyes, and voila! Easter goodness.
