Birthday Cupcakes in a Cone


The only thing better than celebrating your birthday with cupcakes is celebrating it with cupcakes baked in an ice cream cone. These particular ones are vanilla flavored, but you can make them from any batter or flavor combination that you choose, as long as they are baked in ice cream cones. Because the cones need to stay upright while baking, you need to use standard, flat bottomed ones, not sugar cones. However, the results are worth it!

Lavender Colored Cupcakes


A themed party can be made infinitely better with color-coding. This means keeping the napkins, drinks, straws, plates and cups all one color. In this case, that color is lavender, and the theme extends to the cupcakes. Turning your formerly bland colored cupcakes a lovely shade of lavender involves starting with a white or vanilla cake mix. (White cake mixes will work better than vanilla, simply due to their base color.) Add in a few drops of food coloring before combining the ingredients, and voila!

Red, White and Blue Cupcakes


There’s nothing more patriotic than the classic combination of red, white and blue. These cupcakes definitely qualify, with their red, white and blue batter and matching colorful frosting. The cupcakes are made by mixing up a batch of white cupcake batter and dying portions of it red and blue with gel paste coloring. Layering the batter by color, baking these treats and then piping on red, white and blue icing once they cool results in a very patriotic treat!

Mini Bacon Herb Cupcakes with Cream


Cupcakes can be savory instead of sweet, as this recipe for Mini Bacon Herb Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting proves. These cupcakes are made from a mixture of sour cream, crumbled bacon, butter, chopped onions, pepper, self-rising flour and chopped herbs, likes parsley, sage, and thyme, although you can use whichever ones you please. Once these have baked in a mini muffin tin, top them with softened cream cheese and garnish with some herbs or more crumbled bacon. They make a perfect appetizer!

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.
