Earl Grey and Orange Cupcake Recipe with Dark Chocolate Frosting


Tea always transports us to fabled and timeless places of old, be it real life epochs like the Victorian Age or fantasy ones like Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland. Add a bitter taste of lemon and dark chocolate to it and you’ll have heaven in cupcake form. This cupcake consists of very noble flavors, as the melange of different but allied tastes in your mouth will show. The cream is best made using cocoa, as the strong flavor it purveys cuts the bitter orange one, and tea unites them all magnanimously. Chocolate sprinkle them with smooth and country house colors like pale blue, pink or white and invite your noble friends for a cuppa by the fireside while watching the snow fall.

Copycat Hostess Cupcakes


Although Hostess cupcakes are back on the shelves, nothing is stopping you from making your own version of these popular treats. These Copycat Hostess Cupcakes look kind of like the real thing – they’re dipped in homemade chocolate glaze and filled with a cream filling made from heavy cream, butter, powdered sugar and shortening. The cupcake itself is flavored with dark cocoa powder and brewed coffee. Those two things alone result in a tasty cupcake, but once you add the filling and frosting, the results are heavenly!

7th Birthday Carnival Cupcake Tower


What’s cuter than a standard carnival-themed birthday cake? A carnival-themed cupcake tower, of course! These cute cupcakes are topped with magician hats and wands, the letter “S” (in honor of the birthday girl), the number 7 (once again, in honor of the birthday girl), admission “tickets,” and tiny boxes of popcorn — all made out of the frosting. To continue on with the theme, the frosting is in red and yellow, and there is a cake topper that resembles a tent. Cute and edible – that’s a winning a combination!

Kitties & Cupcakes 1st Birthday Cookies


Cupcakes don’t need to actually be mini-cakes – as evidenced by these cupcake-shaped cookies, they can be flattened discs of tastiness, as well. This batch of sugar cookies consists of frosted cupcake cookies, frosted cartoon-y cat cookies, and cookies shaped like lit birthday candles and the number 1. Basically, they work well for birthday parties, but once you remove the birthday candles and numbers, they can be served in lieu of cupcakes for any occasion!

Honeysuckle And Jasmine Cupcakes & The Little Gifts In Life


Most people think of honeysuckle and jasmine as being beautiful flowers that brighten up gardens and bouquets. Little do they know that both can be added to cupcakes! These treats contain both, but not in the traditional (baked into the cakes) way. Instead, the flowers are steeped in sugar water that is strained and then poured over the baked cupcakes. Then, these unusually flavored cupcakes are frosted and served – just the perfect dessert to lighten up any spring or summer day!

Vanilla Snowman Cupcakes with Vanilla Icing


These vanilla snowman cupcakes are rather healthy, that is, until you add in the “snowman” decorations! The cupcakes are made from a boxed mix that has yogurt, water and egg whites added to it. This keep the low-fat factor fairly high. The frosting is made from vanilla extract, sugar, water and unsalted butter. Once the cupcakes are baked and iced, the fun begins – the mini-marshmallows and other candies that go on top aren’t exactly low in fat, but they sure taste great and make these treats look adorable!

SPIDER CUPCAKES


The best thing about Halloween (besides the candy) is the creative cupcakes and other treats! These mini cupcakes are chocolate, made using Martha Stewart’s One Bowl cupcake recipe.

All that you need to turn these normal cupcakes into tiny mutant spiders is some black sanding sugar, cinnamon candy, marshmallows and black licorice, and a little imagination, of course. Who can resist eating a tiny, creepy spider?
