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 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.

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!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Red Velvet Cupcakes

The secret to the color of red velvet cupcakes is actually no secret (hint: it’s a ton of red food dye), but the perfect cake (red or otherwise) requires much more than a dump of dye! In fact, it requires finesse. It requires a delicate hand. And most importantly…it requires a delicious recipe that’s been tried and tried again. A good red velvet cupcake makes you feel like you should be WALKING on red velvet, like the superstar that you are. This particular recipe is so perfect that fancy topping isn’t even necessary – a simple buttercream will do. The cupcakes do all the talking for themselves. Listen up.
