Key Lime Cupcakes

Key Lime Cupcakes

These Key Lime Cupcakes are the perfect tart and tangy combo. I love this Summer cupcake! They are so perfectly tangy and limey with a graham cracker base and creamy cream cheese frosting with a hint of lime added.  Seriously perfect.

And it’s Wednesday. You made it this far, so you deserve a cupcake…or two.

Tequila Sunrise Cupcakes

Tequila Sunrise Cupcakes

These cupcakes are light, fluffy and fun version of the classic cocktail. The cupcake is flavored with fresh squeezed orange juice and orange zest which gives it the most wonderful citrusy orange flavor.

They make a really fun presentation and feel like summer in a cupcake. They are light and delicious and make me feel like I should be sipping my tequila sunrise cocktail and eating a cupcake right by the pool.

Orange Crush Cupcakes

Orange Crush Cupcakes

The Orange Crush, in cocktail form  (not to be confused with the cloyingly sweet soda variety), is synonymous with our beaches here on the Eastern Shore. A few simple ingredients are shaken up to create one of the freshest and fruitiest drinks you’ll find.  They’ve long been one of my favorites in the summertime. So, I got to thinking – why not in cupcake form?

Cake by the ocean, baby! If there ever was a cake deemed worthy of being consumed by the ocean – it’s most certainly these. Make them soon to welcome the warm weather! No regrets.

Blood Orange Chocolate Cupcakes

Blood Orange Chocolate Cupcakes

There’s something just wonderful about the bold, sweet flavors of blood oranges. Make sure you grab some before they are out of season and make some baked goods!

These cupcakes use my favorite chocolate cupcake recipe as a base and it’s boasting with sweet orange zest and dark chocolate made richer with a hint of coffee. Topped with a blood orange frosting (isn’t the color gorgeous??), they are finished with decorative edible candied blood oranges dipped in chocolate.

Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes

Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes

Strawberry shortcake is the classic summertime and springtime dessert.  I grew up eating this classic dessert and look forward to baking it when it starts to heat up outside. Every year, our family would get together and strawberry pick in the farm fields of Wisconsin.  After our gigantic strawberry haul, mom would make a batch of strawberry shortcake and homemade strawberry jam.

This recipe is actually adapted from my Strawberry Shortcake recipe I made last year.  Because that recipe is such a hit, I wanted to extend it to cupcakes.  Because it gets so hot out in the summer, I wanted to make a frosting that would withstand the summer heat of New Orleans.  Even with the air at 66 degrees in the house, traditional whipped cream frosting melts into a big hot mess.

Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes

Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes

As a Texan currently living in gray and dreary Germany, I miss the sun. My husband and I just returned from three weeks visiting friends and family in the South where we enjoyed t-shirt weather for all but a few days. When we returned to Berlin, it was 23°F and in the past 9 days, we’ve had a few hours of sunshine. I’ve never had a harder time getting out of bed!

I don’t like coffee or tea so for a pick-me-up, I turn to citrus goodies this time of year. They always boost my mood and make me a little more energetic. At least until the sugar high is over. 😉

Pineapple Whip Cupcakes

Pineapple Whip Cupcakes

Pineapple is good any way you want to eat it, but if you’re growing weary of the juicy, sliced version, these pineapple whip cupcakes can save the day, even if the day is cold. Light, yet filling and not too sweet, these babies are easy to whip up for a party or just for a solo treat, meaning you won’t spend any more long hours in the kitchen. The holidays are over, after all. Just one catch: you may want to make a few batches, since they’re bound to be a hit.

Prohibition Bakery’s Mai Thai Cupcakes

Mai Thai Cupcakes

New Year’s celebrations are known for being the perfect champagne occasion, but if you’re not into bubbly, or into drinking your booze, you can still usher in 2016 with an edge, thanks to New York City’s Prohibition Bakery.

Just one of the 55 recipes included in the legendary bakery’s new book, these Mai Thai cupcakes put a whole new twist on the world of fruit-filled cupcakes, namely with a touch of your favorite rum. The cupcakes themselves sound delicious enough, filled with healthy-option ingredients like yogurt and coconut oil, but once these babies are topped with a grenadine and coconut rum frosting and injected with rum, they’re sure to be a collection of cakes that start off any year right, especially since they’re small enough to be hors d’oeuvres.

Blueberry Cupcakes

Blueberry Cupcakes

Blueberries are delicious. Do you need anymore convincing to try these blueberry cupcakes? I hope not, because blueberries may be the best (and most delicious, in my opinion) filling and topping for cupcakes. They don’t really ruin the fluffy goodness inside, and they add a wonderful layer of flavor that is just unmatchable by any other fruit. Top with a toooon of frosting that just screams “eat me!” and you have an amazing little cake that could technically even be a breakfast food.
