Lavender Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Frosting


When it comes to unusual cupcake ingredients, dried lavender (the edible variety from a spice shop) and honey are probably at the top of most people’s lists. However, these lavender cupcakes – complete with purple-tinted vanilla bean frosting – are quite tasty. The batter is made from standard yellow cupcake dough, with the addition of the aforementioned honey and dried lavender, plus whole milk. Once they bake, top them with gel-tinted vanilla frosting and enjoy!

Cupcake Photography Lesson #4: Colors


When you’re looking for the perfect shots for your cupcakes, just the right light and shadow isn’t enough, as the most important feature of your photos should be the colors of your cupcakes – after all, they’ll the first thing that will lure the viewer! Don’t confuse more colors with a better overall effect, as in fact what counts is the perfect balance between them, meaning that two or three colors can be much more appealing to the eye than 10 colors clumsily scattered around your cupcake. Less can actually be more, so put your hands to work and try!

Honeysuckle And Jasmine Cupcakes & The Little Gifts In Life


Most people think of honeysuckle and jasmine as being beautiful flowers that brighten up gardens and bouquets. Little do they know that both can be added to cupcakes! These treats contain both, but not in the traditional (baked into the cakes) way. Instead, the flowers are steeped in sugar water that is strained and then poured over the baked cupcakes. Then, these unusually flavored cupcakes are frosted and served – just the perfect dessert to lighten up any spring or summer day!

Ricotta Pound Cake Cupcakes with Whipped Ricotta Frosting


Ricotta cheese is not something that usually goes into cupcakes. But, since it is a sweeter cheese (as compared to, say, provolone) it works well in desserts. These ricotta pound cake cupcakes have the cheese in both the batter and the frosting. The batter is also flavored by almond extract and sugar. There is no milk, since the cheese takes the place of it. The frosting is a simple mixture of ricotta cheese, butter, sugar and orange zest – the perfect complement to these unique cupcakes!

Mini Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf Cupcakes {Tablespoon Tuesdays}


Cupcakes don’t have to be sweet. When made from savory ingredients, these mini chicken parmesan meatloaf cupcakes are more like appetizers, or can be used as a dish at the dinner table, alongside other things. The best part of these chicken cupcakes may not be the seasonings or even the chicken. Instead, the mozzarella cheese filling, the panko and parmesan topping and the warmed marinara sauce (for dipping!) take the cake – almost literally.
