Vanilla Almond Cupcakes

Vanilla Almond Cupcakes

These cupcakes are light and subtly sweet. The vanilla almond cupcake has vanilla tones with sliced almonds right in the mix. The cake is barely sweet to allow the almond to shine.

The frosting is a basic vanilla frosting with a hint of almond extract to cut the sweetness. The flavors in this cupcake really shine—neither the vanilla or almond outshine each other. These cupcakes are perfect for afternoon tea (or a small sweet treat for your love).

Brownie Cupcakes for Two

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!

Champagne Cupcakes

Champagne Cupcakes

These Champagne Cupcakes are super moist and full of champagne flavor! They’d be perfect For New Year’s Eve, or another special occasion, like Valentine’s Day!

This is a very moist cupcake. It’s not super dense, but it’s not super fluffy either. Kind of right down the middle. There’s just more than 1/2 a cup of champagne in the recipe, which gives it plenty of champagne flavor! The icing also has champagne. Hey, if you’re going to celebrate, go all out right?

Vegan Love: Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Rich Chocolate Frosting

Vegan Love: Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Rich Chocolate Frosting

Have you ever tried a vegan cupcake? The truth is, had I not been the one who made these cupcakes, I would honestly never guess that they were dairy and egg free, because they are perfectly decadent.

Both taste and texture went way beyond my expectations, truly (particularly the cake texture–so incredibly moist). Trust me, whether you’re vegan or not, these cupcakes are frickin’ yummy.

Skinny Cherry Cupcakes for Valentine’s Day

Skinny Cherry Cupcakes for Valentine's Day

I am not a big “skinny” dessert fan. If I’m going to eat dessert, I prefer it to be quite satisfying. And usually, skinny desserts leave me wanting more.

But not this time. Although, really, I’m not sure how YOU qualify a dessert as skinny. So we will call these skinny-ish, or skinnier cupcakes. If you’re looking for a skinnier dessert recipe this New Year, give these cupcakes a try!

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.

Soft, bursting with banana flavour and heavenly paired with cream cheese icing, these are the kind of cupcake which even make picky eaters close their eyes to savour every bite.

There’s something so whimsical and endearing about sprinkles…  such a simple and easy way to decorate cupcakes too. These cupcakes are topped with cream cheese icing and white sprinkles…unless you’re up for coloring them yourself. Crafty Sunday, anyone?

Candy Heart Cupcakes

Candy Heart Cupcakes

It’s easy to underestimate the impact of small gestures, so put yourself out there, and declare all the love you have for your friends and family. Make them your Valentines, and make them these cupcakes as a sweet gesture to remember you by.

Because nothing says love like an incredibly moist chocolate cupcake topped with fluffy, soft meringue and a candy heart reading “PUGS & KITTENS”. They deserve it. And YOU deserve it.

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.

A one bowl chocolate cupcake recipe for two. Yes, it makes a perfect serving of two cupcakes. You could whip these up anytime you have a sweet craving. How dangerous is that?!

They’re especially perfect if you want to treat yourself and your sweetie to a special dessert on Valentine’s Day. Even if you don’t have someone special to celebrate with, you should treat yourself. We all know that the best thing about Valentine’s, besides celebrating love and those special people in our lives, is enjoying some chocolate goodness.
