All that you need to create an ice cream cone cupcake is a little creativity – and some ice cream cones. Yes, these cupcakes are baked inside of actual flat-bottomed ice cream cones, thanks to a special pan designed for this exact purpose. Once the cupcakes have baked, cover them in buttercream frosting, chocolate ganache and some sprinkles so that they actually look like ice cream. You can also bake them in waffle cones and receive the same effect. Pretty cool!

Ask any fan of coconut flavored items (or just plain coconut) and they will tell you that there is no such thing as too much of the flavor. These white coconut cupcakes can attest to that, as they contain the fruit in both the cupcakes themselves, and in the frosting. The cupcakes are flavored with coconut milk, sweetened shredded coconut and vanilla extract. The frosting also contains vanilla extract and coconut milk, and you can always sprinkle some shredded coconut on top for extra flavor!

Cookie dough (even though some say that it is not safe to eat thanks to the raw eggs included in it) is quite tasty. And when it is added to cupcakes, like these, it becomes even better. However, since the cookie dough is baked into the center of each cupcake, that makes it a bit more safe than simply scooping it up and eating it by itself. However, there is also cookie dough in the frosting, and a few chocolate chips on top. With all of that, it will be very hard to eat just one!

Chocolate and peanut are an excellent combination. This is why peanut butter M&Ms are so addictive, and why this particular recipe is so tasty. The chocolate cupcakes are good, but are nothing compared to the frosting. You can even make the cupcakes themselves from a boxed mix if you so choose. After all, the frosting is the showpiece. It is made from butter, crunchy peanut butter, powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, salt and crushed peanut butter M&Ms. Tasty!

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!

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!

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.
What do you do when you have to choose between your two favorites: a doughnut and a cupcake? You donít. 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 Ė 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.

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!
