Roasted Strawberry and Mascarpone Cupcakes

Roasted strawberries are delightfully soft and moist, not to mention dripping with juice. That is what makes these cupcakes so grand. They are in the batter, along with vanilla bean paste, flour, sour cream, salt, and several other ingredients. Once these cupcakes are baked and cooled (of course) they are topped with mascarpone frosting (made from mascarpone, vanilla bean paste, heavy cream and powdered sugar) and some more roasted strawberries. You won’t be able to resist these!

Birthday Plaque Cupcakes

Vanilla and chocolate cupcakes coated in buttercream frosting and then topped with edible “plaques” blaring the name of the birthday girl (or boy) and his or her age are a great way to celebrate your loved one’s special day. The best part about serving birthday cupcakes instead of a birthday cake is the fact that they are easier to handle. You won’t need to worry about cutting the pieces of cake unevenly or making sure that everyone has a fork. That’s because cupcakes are self-serve!

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

These vegan cupcakes are also gluten free, so you could argue that they are “healthy” – and use that as your justification for eating several of them in one sitting. However, they are also great for those with food allergies, as they use garbanzo-fava bean flour and potato starch, plus arrowroot, xanthan gum and agave nectar for sweetness. The frosting is also vegan and gluten free. It contains coconut flour, soy milk powder and several other ingredients.

Deep Fried Cupcakes You Can Make at Home

What do you do when you have to choose between your two favorites: a doughnut and a cupcake? You don’t. Deep-fried cupcakes allow you the best of both worlds. So get yourself in line and in no time you can take that endless bite – through the top layer of chocolate and hot chocolate cake, then the mouthwatering ring of hot dough, and finally the spray of powdered sugar. Try it with a chocolate frosting, or a butter cream or cream cheese one. The possibilities are endless.

Sundae Cupcake (with faux ice cream)

Ice cream cupcakes are tasty, but have one downside – they melt and quickly get soggy, and thus need to be served and eaten right away. However, if you can make ordinary cupcakes look like sundaes, without using ice cream, you have far more options when it comes to eating and storing them. These sundae cupcakes fall into that category. They are topped with a scooperful of frosting that looks like a scoop of ice cream, and are drizzled with chocolate ganache and a few other toppings. Yummy!

The words “vegan” and “cupcake” are usually not used in the same sentence when spoken by those who aren’t vegan. After all, many people associate vegans with healthy food. However, even those who abstain from eating meat and animal by-products can enjoy a sugary treat now and then. These cupcakes contain flour, sugar, water, cocoa powder and canola oil, all traditional cupcake ingredients. The frosting is made of vegan margarine and soy milk. Combined, you get a tasty cupcake that anyone can enjoy!

Natural Red Velvet Cupcakes made with Beets

Beets and cupcakes are two things that normally do not go together. However, this red velvet cupcake recipe uses them instead of red food coloring in order to produce a brightly colored treat. The batter is also vegan, made of beets, coconut oil, flour, sugar, vanilla extract, salt, baking powder, natural cocoa powder and almond milk. The frosting contains cream cheese, but is otherwise healthy, although you can always substitute in vegan cream cheese if you prefer.

Bakery Makes Bloody Dexter Cupcakes

Sometimes you get to have a little fun while coming up with creative cupcake inspiration.

Although it may look dangerous, they actually taste delicious!

Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

Snickerdoodles are delightfully cinnamon-y cookies that can be enjoyed year-round. These snickerdoodle cupcakes follow suit, and are flavored with cinnamon, a tiny bit of nutmeg, and vanilla extract. The rest of the batter is made from a mixture of flour, cornstarch, salt, vegetable oil and several other things. Once these cupcakes have had the chance to bake and cool, top them off with a homemade vanilla buttercream frosting, just to add a little more sweetness to go with all of the cinnamon.

Fudge Brownie and Coconut Ice Cream Cupcakes

What do brownie cupcakes, coconut gelato and coconut whipped cream have in common? Easy! They are all components in these fudge brownie and coconut ice cream cupcakes. The cupcakes are made from a brownie batter, which makes thicker, more dense treats. This pairs well with the coconut gelato and the coconut whipped cream (which doubles as frosting.) Simply layer on the gelato, top with frosting, sprinkle on some toasted coconut and chocolate sprinkles and serve. You won’t be able to eat just one!
