Watergate Cupcakes

Watergate Cupcakes

Watergate Cupcakes are the cupcake version of the famous Watergate Salad made from pistachio pudding mix, pineapple, cool whip, and marshmallows and they are the perfect nostalgic treat.

The cupcake part is super moist with just a little texture contrast from the crushed pineapple. Both the flavor of the pistachio and pineapple are evident, but not overpowering. A green cupcake covered in marshmallow fluff frosting. That’s super fun.

Licorice Delight: Vanilla Almond & Anise Cupcakes

Licorice Delight: Vanilla Almond & Anise Cupcakes

If you’re not a fan of black jelly beans or licorice that isn’t red, you certainly won’t be the first person on the planet. But these anise cupcakes somehow manage to capture just enough of the licorice flavor to thrill the tastebuds instead of turning them off.

Think vanilla almond cupcakes topped with whipped vanilla bean frosting, spiked with just a touch of anise flavoring. It seems like these treats might be the perfect amount of sweet and the perfect amount of “I only need one.”

Pizza Cupcakes

Pizza Cupcakes

It’s Monday, and on Mondays, it’s totally acceptable to have cupcakes for dinner. Especially when they’re composed of pizza ingredients!

These little muffins have all the components you love about pizza: sauce, mozzarella, herbs and pepperoni, held together by a savory cupcake. It’s a very basic dough that is soft and almost spongy, which is perfect to soak up tomato sauce. Imagine what a biscuit would be like with all of those toppings and that’s pretty much what you are getting!

Margarita Cupcakes

Margarita Cupcakes

Happy Cinco de Mayo! As a designated drinking holiday in the United States (inexplicably), it’s only right that we share a margarita cupcake recipe in celebration.

These cupcakes are margaritas in perfect cupcake form, featuring tequila spiked cupcakes topped with tequila lime frosting and a touch of fleur-de-sel. Everyone knows it’s better not to indulge on an empty stomach, so be sure to eat a few before party-time!

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.

Banana Smoothie Cupcakes

Banana Smoothie Cupcakes

Maybe it is almost bikini season, but it’s not true what they say, that you can’t have your smoothie and eat it too. These banana smoothie cupcakes take the illusion of healthy eating to a whole new level!

There is an ample amount of banana in these goodies, and the frosting is yogurt based, but you’ll still get your dose of sugar in the chocolate chips and other cupcake ingredients. The important thing here is that you can still say you had a banana smoothie.

Rich chocolate cupcakes topped with caramel pecan frosting, caramel drizzle and chopped pecans. With a little drizzle of caramel on top and few pecan crumbs, they finish off beautifully.

These cupcakes start with a wonderfully moist and fully chocolate cupcake. Sitting on top is the most wonderful caramel pecan frosting, drippy caramel sauce and chopped pecans. So, so good.

It’s finally feeling like spring and we’re enjoying the Cherry Blossom Festival! These beautiful trees show some of the most gorgeous pink blooms once a year, and this cupcake recipe pairs perfectly with the occasion.

Based on a vanilla cupcake recipe, these babies include almond flavoring and cherry pieces beneath a pretty pink almond cherry buttercream (made with actual cherry juice), all topped with shaved almonds and maraschinos. Here’s to cherry!
