Pink Champagne and Gold Leaf Cupcakes

Pink Champagne and Gold Leaf Cupcakes

One of my enduring obsessions is decorating cakes with edible gold leaf. It’s just so pretty and I’m drawn to the organic nature of its application. You probably know by now, I love a filled cupcake! I made some pink champagne pastry cream and used it to bring even more champagne flavor to the cakes.

They’re good for all celebrations – large and small! The cakes get a big dose of bubbly in the batter, and the pastry cream holds obvious fruity champagne flavor. If you’re not inclined to purchase champagne, then cream soda may be used in its place, and champagne flavoring oil may be added for a non-alcoholic version.

A Dozen Rose Cupcakes

A Dozen Rose Cupcakes
Even if you don’t make the sugar roses for these cupcakes, they are absolutely delicious and a chocolate lover’s dream come true. The centers are filled with rich chocolate ganache and the vanilla bean frosting swirl on top is a nice counter to all the chocolate. The recipe makes two dozen cupcakes, so you can keep one dozen and gift another (if you’re feeling generous).
Learning a new skill is exciting, and if you take the plunge into sugar flower-making, then be patient with yourself. The first flower may take a little longer to make than the rest, but that’s just a part of the learning process.

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting

These are some of the most decadent cupcakes I’ve ever made – and in such a good way! They are rich and luscious and oh so irresistibly chocolatey! This is definitely one of my new favorite chocolate cupcake recipes (and if you want to make it more of a milder milk chocolate cupcake just reduce the cocoa 2 Tbsp and up the flour 2 more Tbsp, I tested them out both ways but definitely preferred the darker version here paired with the sweetness of the raspberry frosting). They are somewhat dense and deliciously fudgy and you’ll want to make them again and again.

Strawberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Strawberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

These Strawberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting are perfect! So moist and fluffy! And they are an amazing copy of one my favorite cupcakes!

So I think I’ve mentioned it before, but in case I haven’t here’s my little secret: Even though I bake mostly from scratch these days, I grew up on box mixes and store bought cakes.

So I set out to replicate the flavor of that cake mix, but from scratch. I’m pretty sure I hit the nail on the head. I’m in love with these cupcakes! I even put “love” on top of them.

Tiramisu Cupcakes

Tiramisu Cupcakes

These Tiramisu Cupcakes are the jam! They are like little individual tiramisu cakes. They drizzled with an espresso Kahlua mixture, filled with tiramisu filling and topped with a light Kahlua mascarpone buttercream. It’s my new favorite, for sure!

Kicking it off with these cupcakes is definitely an awesome way to get started. They are setting the tone with how yummy they are. Irresistible really. If you love tiramisu, these cupcakes are your new favorite dessert. I could seriously just sit down with a spoon and a bowl of tiramisu filling and be a happy camper. It’s the bomb.com (yes, I still live in the 90s in my head).

Chocolate Cupcakes with Caramel Buttercream

Chocolate Cupcakes with Caramel Buttercream

If you’re already in the market for a chocolatey sweet treat this week, these chocolate cupcakes will hit the spot like no other. Based on a rich, buttermilk cake recipe, these babies are loaded with chunks of chocolate, and if that’s not enough decadence for you, wait until you see the frosting recipe. Powdered sugar, butter and salted caramel are the only ingredients you’ll need to whip up this tasty, creamy topping. Still not satisfied? Pop a chocolate truffle atop the frosting, and call 911, because you’re in for a chocolate overdose.

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes

Pink lemonade may not be a typical “winter” flavor, but it’s a delicious one! The greatest thing about this recipe, besides the little taste of summer during otherwise chilly months, is that these guys are so easy to make. A little bit of lemon zest, a little bit of food coloring, a dash of love and perhaps some pink sprinkles are all they take. Convinced yet? We’d also like to point out they’re perfect for Valentine’s Day. Go ahead, get romantic.

Coconut Angel Food Cupcakes

Coconut Angel Food Cupcakes

We’ve been all about warming comfort cakes here at The Cupcake Blog lately, but light snacking is important too. It’s January, and we’ve all made resolutions for the new year, some involving shedding a few pounds. If that’s the case, these cupcakes fit the bill. Based on angel food cake with a light coconut flavor infusion, these cupcakes are light, airy and perfect for a sweet treat without that overwhelming full feeling. Plus, they look charmingly similar to the snow piles from last weekend’s #Blizzard2016! Not a huge fan of coconut? Keep in mind the taste is very light here, but if coconut turns you all the way off, substitute vanilla flavor instead, and enjoy these cakes just the same!
