Mancakes: Beer, Bacon & Cheese Cupcakes

Mancakes: Beer, Bacon & Cheese Cupcakes

If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, get ready to have quite a collection of hearts on your hands with these “mancakes.”

These sweets swap out the “sugar, spice and everything nice” in favor of a more modern set of puppy dog tails: beer, bacon and cheese. If you’re at all in tune with the world of food festivals, you know this combination, especially as a cupcake, is a no-brainer.

Banana Smoothie Cupcakes

Banana Smoothie Cupcakes

Maybe it is almost bikini season, but it’s not true what they say, that you can’t have your smoothie and eat it too. These banana smoothie cupcakes take the illusion of healthy eating to a whole new level!

There is an ample amount of banana in these goodies, and the frosting is yogurt based, but you’ll still get your dose of sugar in the chocolate chips and other cupcake ingredients. The important thing here is that you can still say you had a banana smoothie.

Coconut Macaroon Cupcakes

Coconut Macaroon Cupcakes

Celebrate the arrival of spring with Coconut Macaroon Cupcakes topped with dark chocolate, toasted coconut and whipped cream.  Dark chocolate and coconut compliment each other and this cupcake is a perfect example of it.

These cupcakes aren’t your typical cupcake, though, because they’re made with less added sugar, swapping out traditional sugar for SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener.  The result is just as delicious with a super moist and flavorful cupcake made without sacrificing any flavor!

Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes with Avocado Buttercream Frosting

Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes with Avocado Buttercream Frosting

By themselves, these vegan chocolate avocado cupcakes are a perfect representation of a delicious, moist cupcake with the perfect crumb. But with the avocado buttercream? Game changer.

This combination is absolutely lethal. The avocado taste in the buttercream is subtle, yet present, and has such a fantastic natural coloring. I would seriously take this avocado buttercream over the traditional buttercream any day. Any day. It is that good.

Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes

Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes

These cupcakes are wonderful. Each bite is rich, decadent, spongy and almost fluffy chocolate cake. Lightly sweetened whipped cream is all you need to go on top, as these rich cupcakes don’t need a heavy frosting.

A chocolate lover would be content to eat these plain, but the whipped cream does make them look a lot prettier. As an added bonus, these cupcakes are gluten-free and under 200 calories!

White Chocolate Hi-Hat Cupcakes

White Chocolate Hi-Hat Cupcakes

Aren’t these cupcakes so cute? It’s almost a shame to cover up the pretty swirls of icing with white chocolate and sprinkles. The cupcakes are also white chocolate flavoured and have a lovely fine crumb.

There’s a couple tricky bits to these cupcakes. First is making sure you whip your meringue until it is stiff enough. The second part is to make sure your melted white chocolate mixture is cool enough before dipping the tops of the cupcakes into it, otherwise your meringue icing will just melt as soon as it hits the chocolate. Happy baking!

Lemon-Limoncello Cupcakes

Lemon-Limoncello Cupcakes

These cupcakes are absolutely superb! There’s nothing like a fresh, lemon tasting dessert of any kind!

I think the limoncello in this recipe gives the cupcake a great and different kind of lemon flavor, definitely like nothing I’ve ever had before. I also really like the lemon curd filling, it’s just delicious to bite into!

Chocolate Turtle Cupcakes

Chocolate Turtle Cupcakes

Rich chocolate cupcakes topped with caramel pecan frosting, caramel drizzle and chopped pecans. With a little drizzle of caramel on top and few pecan crumbs, they finish off beautifully.

These cupcakes start with a wonderfully moist and fully chocolate cupcake. Sitting on top is the most wonderful caramel pecan frosting, drippy caramel sauce and chopped pecans. So, so good.

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!
