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.

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 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.

Sometimes all that you need is a light, airy cupcakes. These angel food cupcakes (complete with meringue icing) are quite different than the thicker, heavier variety. The batter contains cake flour, salt, water, egg whites, vanilla extract, cream of tartar and two different types of sugar. Once they’re baked and have cooled, then it’s time to top these treats with homemade pink meringue icing, although you can tint it a different color if you prefer. Serve and devour!

Funfetti Cupcakes

Sprinkles are located all over these funfetti cupcakes. They are included in the batter and baked inside these vanilla-flavored treats, and rolled onto the frosting to coat the edges – just enough to give you that extra “sugar rush” when biting into them. The batter itself is fairly simple; it’s a mix of cake flour, butter, salt, egg whites, milk, vanilla extract, sugar and baking powder, not to mention the rainbow sprinkles, of course. The frosting is an equally simple vanilla buttercream, which makes the sprinkles stand out just a bit more in contrast.

Waffle Crisp Cupcakes

While any cupcake can be eaten for breakfast, if you so desire, these Waflle Crisp cupcakes are designed for that very purpose. They consist of a yellow cupcake (made from a box mix, although you can use a from-scratch recipe), homemade maple buttercream frosting, and crushed waffle crisp cereal. The cupcakes are baked, allowed to cool, and then topped with a very thin layer of frosting. The crushed cereal goes on top of that, and then a thicker layer of frosting is applied. Top with a few whole cereal bits and enjoy!
