Two words: rainbow cupcakes.

Parkin Cupcakes with Toffee Buttercream

Parkin Cupcakes with Toffee Buttercream

Something about the savory hint in toffee makes it the perfect flavor for cooler weather, especially snuggled up in front of a warm fire. Since these yummy cupcakes are made with parkin, a sticky, moist cake at its best when it is a few days old, they’re the perfect treats to make ahead and warm up for snuggle time. Whip them up a few days before you plan to eat them, then ice them with wonderful toffee and buttercream and enjoy their perfect flavor with some much deserved relaxation.

Strawberry Basil Cupcakes

Strawberry Basil Cupcakes

Strawberry is a wonderful fruit, but sometimes we get so wrapped up in its personal flavor, we forget how well it pairs with herbs! In this case, combine strawberry with basil to make a cupcake that will have everyone asking for more. We’re using basil sugar here, not pure basil, so no need to worry it will overpower the sweetness you expect in a cupcake. Like many of the recipes we love, one of these cupcakes just might not be enough.

Lemon Cupcakes with Fresh Raspberry Buttercream

Lemon Cupcakes with Fresh Raspberry Buttercream

There’s just something about fruity goodness on top of additional fruity goodness. I can’t quite explain it, to be honest; it’s simply irresistible, and it makes the world go ’round. In this particular case, we have a fluffy lemon cupcake – which is already hard for a fruit lover to deny – topped with raspberry frosting and, if one so desires,…actual raspberries. Now, I don’t know about you, but the pink lemonade-looking combination is absolutely impossible for me to resist, and you may want to make a batch quickly before you eat the fresh, juicy, ingredients…in my humble opinion.

Pina Colada Cupcakes

Pina Colada Cupcakes

You could say that when you are boozing it up with these cupcakes, you’re doing it in a very classy way. Or you could just say, “TGIF!” Pina Colada Cupcakes are every bit as good as knocking back a few real-life Pina Coladas. The thing about this particular cupcake though, is that it has a double whammy when it comes to the alcohol. These babies are rum soaked AND filled with pineapple preserves, which no doubt acts as a wonderful vessel for gathering up a bit more of that rum flavor. It just might be that these are a don’t eat-and-drive delectable! (But wouldn’t they be worth it?)

Mini Blueberry Coconut Cupcakes

Mini Blueberry Coconut Cupcakes

You can never go wrong when you make blueberries your berry of choice for cupcakes. This is especially true when you follow this easy-to-make recipe. Follow that up with the addition of coconut, and you are leaving nothing to be desired. Both of these, as well as the other ingredients, are easy to digest and don’t make one feel over stuffed or too full (even if you eat a few more than you planned). Even the contrast in the color of the berries and coconut make these little gems appealing, very special cupcakes.
