A little bit of Australia comes to the United States with these Lamington cupcakes. For those not in the know, a Lamington is an Australian treat that consists of tiny squares of sponge cake that have been dunked in frosting in order to coat them on all sides. These square cupcakes, made from a vanilla cupcake batter (although you can always make them chocolate) are frosted on all sides and coated in both coconut and white sprinkles. Yummy!

These moose tracks cupcakes are based on an ice cream flavor from Maine. The cupcakes, as with the ice cream, combine the flavors of chocolate fudge, peanut butter, and vanilla to make a delectable treat. The trick is to make sure to chill the chocolate ganache before incorporating it into the vanilla frosting with the peanuts. If you don’t chill it first you will have swirled chocolate and vanilla cupcakes without any moose droppings

I can think of no two flavors that go together better than sweet potato and cinnamon. It turns out the way to make it better was to turn those same flavors into sweet potato cupcakes with cinnamon sugar cream cheese frosting! Unlike sweet potato pie, these sweet potato cupcakes are light and airy. The buttermilk in the cupcakes gives them a nice tangy flavor which is a perfect contrast to the rich and creamy cinnamon sugar frosting.

What’s better than a caramel candy or a simple vanilla cupcake? The answer is simple – a combination of the two! These salted caramel cupcakes combine the best of both worlds, thanks to their swirls of caramel goodness. The caramel is on the inside, baked in to the cake, and then again on the outside, swirled onto the top of the buttercream frosting. Only one word can be used to describe these tasty treats: delicious.

One of the great baking debates centers around the difference between cupcakes and muffins. One is an acceptable breakfast food: muffins. The other is seen strictly as a dessert: cupcakes. So what makes one a better dessert and the other a better breakfast? Creaming and blending. Creaming involves mixing a fat, like butter, in with sugar. This makes things light and fluffy. Curious about blending? Check out the post on “The Science Behind a Muffing and a Cupcake.”

Rainbows are more than just a flavor of sherbet or the reflection of sunlight off of water drops that appear in the sky on occasion. Thanks to this recipe, rainbows are sugary cupcake confections as well. These vanilla almond cupcakes are made from white cake mix and a few additions – like almond extract and vanilla pudding. The rainbow part comes into play once the cake is divided up and dyed with food coloring. Layer and swirl the colors into a cupcake wrapper and bake!
