Tart, sweet, and vibrant is how you describe these Pink Lemonade Confetti Cupcakes. The sour and sweet flavor of the lemon is a perfect refresher on a warm summer day. This recipe is rather simple but still quite tasty and it leaves lots of room for you to re-design them and bake them or top them to suite your personal needs or taste. They are also an attractive light pink color which makes them the ideal snack for wedding showers and sweet 16 parties.

If you’ve ever wanted a giant girl’s scout cookie, here’s your chance. You can call it best chance even. These Chocolate Mint Cupcakes taste like thin mints! The sour cream and mint extract in the cake batter give the chocolaty flavor a light refreshing taste. Adding peppermint extract to the butter cream frosting really highlights everything and you’ll love the intense mix of creamy chocolate, buttery cream, and vibrant mint.

Brown Butter Cupcakes – If You’ve Ever Burnt Something, You Can Make Brown Butter

Baking with brown butter is slightly more complicated than simply mixing the ingredients together to form batter — but the results are worth it. These cupcakes contain brown butter, cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, egg whites, sugar, vanilla extract and whole milk. The cream cheese frosting is made from lucuna powder (lucuna is a maple-like sweetener that is native to South America), cream cheese and more unsalted butter. Definitely different, definitely tasty.

Not only are these ice cream cupcakes a great treat to enjoy on a hot summer day, but they are easy to make as well. The cupcake “base” is made from a brownie mix, only poured into a series of cupcake liners instead of a single pan. Once they’ve baked, they are frozen, topped with melted ice cream, and then frozen again. Before serving, toss on some frosting (homemade ganache works well) or a spoonful or two of whipped cream.

Raspberri Cupcakes

Everyone knows that cupcakes need to taste good. That is common sense. However, the best cupcakes not only taste good – they look good as well. Food styling is tough to do, but the baker/food artisan in this article pulls it off well. The chocolate cake with raspberry filling (and chocolate icing) is topped with fresh raspberries in the center, and a line of heart shaped macaroon cookies around the outside. The result is both pretty and tasty.

Chai tea is a great, relaxing drink. Putting it into cupcake does not seem like a natural pairing, but this combination really worked well. The Chai tea mixture (typically made from tea leaves, cloves, fennel, cinnamon and a few other spices) compliments the cocoa powder, butter, sugar, vanilla extract, flour and other more “standard” cupcake ingredients. Chai tea is also in the buttercream frosting, which is then dusted with more cocoa powder and some sanding sugar. This leaves you with a treat that is both savory and sweet at the same time.

When you mention the words “classic cupcakes” to anyone, the most common thing that comes to mind are the cream filled chocolate ones with chocolate frosting – very similar to the iconic ones that Hostess makes. These chocolate cream cupcakes are very similar to those iconic treats. They consist of a chocolate cupcake batter that is filled with a sweet vanilla flavored filling. Once they are frosted with chocolate ganache, pipe on some vanilla frosting swirls and enjoy!

Orange Cream & Chocolate Cupcakes

There are a number of established flavor pairings that people love – chocolate and peanut butter, strawberry and banana, but orange and chocolate? Yes. It might seem unusual, but this combination works together quite nicely. These cupcakes consist of a German chocolate cake mix with added orange emulsion, and some creative toppings. These toppings include homemade orange cream frosting, melted chocolate drizzle and a single orange Sixlets candy placed at the very tippy-top of the orange frosting mountain. All of these make these cupcakes unusual, remarkable and unforgettable.

Father’s Day: Mocha Cupcakes

One way to make Father’s Day great is by baking cupcakes for the man being honored. These cupcakes are made from unsweetened cocoa powder, instant espresso powder and brewed espresso, giving them a “kick” that will help jump start Father’s Day. They are decorated with green tinted cream cheese frosting that has been piped on to look like grass, before being topped with a few choice accessories, like a golf tee, a golf ball and small toothpick flag adorned with the words “Happy Father’s Day!”
