Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes with Earl Grey Buttercream and Salted Caramel

Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes with Earl Grey Buttercream and Salted Caramel

You might think it sounds like a strange combination, but the moist, slightly bitter dark chocolate cake is heavenly when you add the fluffy meringue-style icing with a hint of bergamot.

It’s pretty much chocolate and orange! And salted caramel goes with everything. Why not shake up your Sunday cup of tea?

Brownie Cupcakes for Two

This recipe makes exactly TWO fudgy chocolate brownie cupcakes, in one bowl, right in the toaster oven! Topped with a creamy buttercream frosting, this recipe is perfect for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or extra special small-batch after dinner treat.

I like to top them with a simple vanilla or chocolate buttercream, but feel free to mix and match with your cupcakes, for your own custom, gourmet flavor combinations!

Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries

Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries

Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me.  Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal.

The cakes are just sweet enough, and have a light, fluffy crumb – the perfect vehicle for rich chocolate buttercream. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match. I’ve been looking for something different to serve for Valentine’s dessert, and this is definitely different.

Pink Rose Cupcakes for your Sweet Valentine

Pink Rose Cupcakes for your Sweet Valentine

Nothing says Valentines Day more than roses and chocolate! This is the kind of rose I’d like to receive on Valentines Day. How about you?

Chocolate and raspberry together are a great combination, topped off with Buttercream Frosting and tinted pink with Americolor soft pink. Either vanilla extract or raspberry would make these super delicious.

Date Cupcakes with Maple Cinnamon Buttercream

Date Cupcakes with Maple Cinnamon Buttercream

If the term “sweet treat” doesn’t elicit visions of dates in your mind, you’re most likely not alone. Dates aren’t typically considered a sweet (unless you’re a raw foodie), but these cupcakes are proof that sometimes the crowd can be wrong.

Modeled after sweet date cake and topped with homemade caramel sauce and maple cinnamon buttercream, these date cupcakes are as far from boring as you can imagine. In fact, they’re much closer to scrumptious.

Hot Fudge Sundae Cupcakes

Hot Fudge Sundae Cupcakes

It may be a little on the chilly side to indulge in actual ice cream, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a hot fudge sundae anyway.

This cupcake recipe is the perfect way to get the sundae taste you’re craving without the drop in body temperature ice cream can bring. So instead of turning up the heat and going for the Ben & Jerry’s anyway, try this on for size!
