Shirley Temple Cupcakes

These lip-smacking goodies look like they’ve popped up out of a 1950’s Technicolor fantasy flick and they taste as fine as their classical looks. Sweet and scrumptious, with a slightly caramelized top, the bright and shiny glazing with its grenadine and lemon extract mix, is a sensation. And then of course, it’s up to you to choose whether you want to keep the iconic maraschino cherry for last or gobble it up before you commence the mini-feast.

Chocolate Biscoff Cupcakes

Biscoff is an addictive cookie spread that is similar to Nutella (although Nutella is made from chocolate and hazelnuts.) These cupcakes have Biscoff in the frosting, not in the batter itself. In fact, the batter is a simple chocolate cupcake batter, made according to the specifications from your favorite recipe. The frosting is a Biscoff buttercream that is made from butter, vanilla, powdered sugar, milk and the aforementioned Biscoff spread. Frost the cupcakes, sprinkle on some Biscoff cookie bits and enjoy!

3D Lego Cupcakes

Kids like to play with blocks, so it makes perfect sense that a child would request a Lego themed birthday party, complete with matching cupcakes. These particular cupcakes come in both chocolate and vanilla flavors, so each attendee has his or her choice. The frosting matches the cupcakes, making it easier to choose. However, the real stand out are the fondant Lego “bricks” placed on top of each treat. They are edible, and really carry out the theme, don’t you think?
