S’more 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!

7th Birthday Carnival Cupcake Tower


What’s cuter than a standard carnival-themed birthday cake? A carnival-themed cupcake tower, of course! These cute cupcakes are topped with magician hats and wands, the letter “S” (in honor of the birthday girl), the number 7 (once again, in honor of the birthday girl), admission “tickets,” and tiny boxes of popcorn — all made out of the frosting. To continue on with the theme, the frosting is in red and yellow, and there is a cake topper that resembles a tent. Cute and edible – that’s a winning a combination!

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.

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!

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.
