Margarita Cupcakes

Margarita Cupcakes

Happy Cinco de Mayo! As a designated drinking holiday in the United States (inexplicably), it’s only right that we share a margarita cupcake recipe in celebration.

These cupcakes are margaritas in perfect cupcake form, featuring tequila spiked cupcakes topped with tequila lime frosting and a touch of fleur-de-sel. Everyone knows it’s better not to indulge on an empty stomach, so be sure to eat a few before party-time!

Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Frosting

Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Frosting

Decadent chocolate cupcakes stuffed with creamy Nutella and topped with fresh raspberry frosting. And yes, they’re just as delicious as they look.

Say hello to the most decadent treat to emerge from my oven this year. I know, I know… diets and resolutions and cleanses are all the rage right now. But let me tell you, these babies are worth every rich, decadent, Nutella and raspberry filled bite.

Hazelnut Brownie Cupcakes with Hazelnut Buttercream

Hazelnut Brownie Cupcakes with Hazelnut Buttercream

A hybrid brownie/cupcake with chopped Diamond hazelnuts throughout is topped with a luscious chocolate hazelnut buttercream.

These are a hybrid of a cupcake and a brownie, so you get the best of both worlds. They are denser than cupcakes, but not quite as dense as a brownie. It’s the perfect compromise for when you can’t decide between cupcakes and brownies. Fold in some hazelnuts for a little bit of crunch, and it’s a little bit of chocolate bliss.

Mint Julep Cupcakes with Buttercream Roses

Mint Julep Cupcakes with Buttercream Roses

It’s gonna be May (insert JT meme here), which means more than a few things, including flowers, Mother’s Day, the end of school and the Kentucky Derby, and….mint juleps.

While the drink itself is pretty delicious, we’re always a fan of a cocktail turned cupcake, and this one doesn’t let down. Spiked with Creme de Menthe and bourbon and topped with piped pink buttercream roses, we can’t think of a better way to welcome Justin Timberlake’s favorite month.

It’s finally feeling like spring and we’re enjoying the Cherry Blossom Festival! These beautiful trees show some of the most gorgeous pink blooms once a year, and this cupcake recipe pairs perfectly with the occasion.

Based on a vanilla cupcake recipe, these babies include almond flavoring and cherry pieces beneath a pretty pink almond cherry buttercream (made with actual cherry juice), all topped with shaved almonds and maraschinos. Here’s to cherry!

Cadbury Creme Egg Easter Cupcakes

Cadbury Creme Egg Easter Cupcakes

Many of us are fans of the ever-popular Cadbury eggs, which are now available with a variety of fillings, but this cupcake takes the original Cadbury creme egg to a new level of delicious.

Filled with jelly beans and crushed Cadbury eggs, then cored to make room for chocolate sauce, these cupcakes are topped with vanilla buttercream, homemade white chocolate ganache (colored yellow to resemble yolk) and as many Cadbury halves as you can fit on top. Are you drooling yet?

Cookies & Cream Cupcakes

Cookies & Cream Cupcakes

While you may have had Cookies & Cream in cupcake form before, we doubt it was this packed with the deliciousness of Oreo cookies.

Based on half an Oreo, baked with Oreo chunks inside and topped buttercream cream cheese frosting with Oreo crumbles and another cookie half, THIS is what they meant by Cookies & Cream.

Strawberry Pop Tart Cupcakes

Strawberry Pop Tart Cupcakes

It may be more acceptable to love cupcakes than Pop Tarts as a grown up with a day job, but this recipe shakes up that idea and proves we can love and enjoy both…at the same time.

Top vanilla cupcakes with homemade strawberry buttercream and a Pop Tart piece to bring a whole new level of yummy to Friday breakfast.
