Neapolitan Cupcakes

The word “Neapolitan” brings up mental pictures of a vanilla, strawberry and chocolate ice cream in a carton or a bowl. These cupcakes produce the same effect, and have all three flavors at once. The cupcakes themselves are chocolate. These is no specific recipe here, and you can use any one that you wish. The frosting is vanilla buttercream, and the strawberry flavor? That is in the form of strawberry chocolate dip coating. Toss on a few sprinkles and enjoy!

Ombre Lemon Cupcakes With Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

If you’ve been looking for a great lemon cupcake recipe, but found most of them to be too complicated, then look no further than these ombre lemon cupcakes with lemon cream cheese frosting.

Chocolate Berries and Cream Cupcakes

Any cupcake recipe that consists of chocolate, whipped cream and fruit has to be good. This one in particular starts out with light and airy chocolate cupcakes, made from the recipe or cake mix of your choosing. Once they are baked in festive wrappers (or plain ones) and have had a chance to thoroughly cool off, they are topped with whipped cream. You can either make your own out of whipping cream and sugar, or use the pre-made kind in a canister. Top with a few berries or some berry drizzle (or both) and serve!

Coconut Lime Cupcakes with Coconut Lime Cream Cheese Frosting

These cupcakes were designed with coconut lovers in mind. The batter consists of softened coconut oil (substituted for butter), unsweetened shredded coconut, and coconut milk. If you like limes, then you’ll enjoy the lime zest and lime juice that are in the cupcakes as well. The frosting for these treats contains more of both of these ingredients – most notably, coconut oil, coconut milk, and lime juice. When you combine them with all of the other ingredients, you end up with a very tasty cupcake!

Smoked Sumatra Coffee Cupcakes

You’ve undoubtedly heard of smoked meats, like salmon and beef, and the results that you receive – jerky, in most cases. However, smoked cupcakes? Is that a real thing? Actually, yes, it is. These smoked cupcakes are made of cocoa powder, espresso powder, sugar, flour, and a bunch of the “standard” ingredients required of a typical chocolate cupcake. The only difference is that they are bathed in hickory smoke for an hour after they have been baked and cooled. Top them with coffee flavored Swiss meringue buttercream frosting after smoking them.

Banana Chocolate Chip Coffee Cupcakes

Overripe bananas are nothing to cry over. Instead of throwing them out, turn them into cupcakes! These banana chocolate chip coffee cupcakes contain mashed bananas and chocolate chips, like the name implies. However, they also have chopped walnuts, cinnamon, sour cream, flour, sugar, and several other things. Since they are “coffee cupcakes” (similar to coffee cake) they aren’t frosted. A light sprinkling of sugar on top is all that is needed!

It may sound strange, but vegan cupcakes are quite delicious, especially when they are topped with fluffy vanilla almond frosting and a light drizzle of raspberry glaze. These cupcakes contain a number of substitutes that make them just as tasty as regular ones, only vegan. For example, vanilla almond milk takes the places of standard dairy milk, and extra virgin olive oil and apple cider vinegar fill in for the eggs. Don’t forget the cocoa powder!

Coconut Cupcakes

There’s no such thing as too much coconut. These cupcakes contain coconut extract and cream of coconut, while the frosting has coconut extract as well. To top it all off, they are sprinkled with toasted coconut flakes. Besides the coconut extract, the frosting contains cream cheese and other ingredients, and the batter is also flavored with vanilla extract and buttermilk. The resulting cupcakes are rich, moist and coconut-ty. How will you be able to eat just one?

Lavender Honey Cupcakes

Lavender and honey collide in order to make a perfectly sweet cupcake with just a hint lavender (courtesy of the dried lavender mixed into the batter.) Yes, lavender can be used for more than making scented sachets and potpourri. These also contain flour, butter, eggs, sugar, honey, and several other more traditional ingredients. The frosting is a mixture of mascarpone, butter, honey, vanilla and powdered sugar. After frosting, sprinkle on a few bits of dried lavender for both color and flavor.

Just because something is gluten free, that does not mean that it will not taste good. These sweet cupcakes are flavored with coconut (both coconut juice and shredded coconut are in the batter), and contain sorghum flour, cornstarch and guar gum instead of cake flour. The rest of the ingredients, including buttermilk, almond extract and vanilla extract, are identical to those in “standard” gluten-filled cupcakes. The frosting is a homemade cream cheese that is topped with almonds – and little more shredded coconut, if you so desire.
