Mini Red Velvet Cupcakes with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting

Red velvet cupcakes are a holiday classic, although they can be made (and enjoyed) any time of the year. These are made with standard red velvet cake ingredients, including cocoa powder, baking soda, sugar, eggs, buttermilk, flour, vanilla extract and red gel food coloring. The main difference is that they are made in a mini cupcake pan instead of a standard one, and that they are topped with orange cream cheese frosting and candied blueberries.

Chocolate Biscoff Cupcakes

Biscoff is a spread made from Biscoff cookies. It’s very similar to Nutella, but, obviously, made from something entirely different. It is used in this cupcake recipe – alongside chocolate and several other ingredients, like unsalted butter, vanilla, powdered sugar and chocolate cake mix. The frosting can be any variety – this one uses vanilla buttercream – as the best part is the melted Biscoff spread and bits of Biscoff cookies that go on top. They are the real showstoppers here.

Yummy Chocolate Cupcakes

The only thing better than chocolate is more chocolate! These chocolate cupcakes are coated with chocolate buttercream frosting, and then decked out in a number of different ways. Liquid chocolate drizzles, Oreo cookie halves, chopped up candy bars (Snickers in this case), chocolate sprinkles, chocolate flakes and even a fondant teddy bear are placed on top of them. And no, these aren’t all on one cupcake (although you can do that if you wish) – they are spread out amongst the whole batch!

Mayonnaise is something that most people put on sandwiches and in things like egg salad and potato salad – not cupcakes. However, this unique chocolate cupcake recipe contains mayonnaise, as well as eggs, flours, cocoa powder, sugar, water, salt and vanilla extract. The mayonnaise makes the cupcakes turn out rich and moist. Top them with some homemade caramel buttercream frosting in order to add some dimension to the overall flavor. The end result? Irresistible cupcakes!

Blue Moon Bacon Cheddar Savory Cupcakes Recipe

Cupcakes do not need to be sweet. Some, like these Blue Moon Bacon Cheddar Cupcakes, fall into the savory category. These consist of eggs, flour, baking soda, sour cream, vanilla extract, Blue Moon beer (which should bake out while in the oven, but makes these for adults-only nonetheless), butter, cheese and brown sugar. The frosting is a mixture of cream cheese, butter, cheddar cheese and powdered sugar. Bake, frost and top with bacon bits before serving as an appetizer!

Red Velvet Nutella Cupcakes

Red velvet cupcakes typically are topped off with cream cheese frosting. These are not – they are topped with something better: Nutella! This chocolate hazelnut spread is turned into a luscious buttercream frosting thanks to the addition of unsalted butter, milk, powdered sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. The cupcakes themselves are a traditional red velvet, complete with dark chocolate cocoa powder, white vinegar, vanilla extract and red food coloring. If you wanted to, you could always add on some sprinkles before enjoying!
