Sometimes you need a cupcake with a little “pick me up,” like these mocha chip cupcakes. These chocolate confections are made from a combination of chopped chocolate, flour, salt, baking soda, unsalted butter, sugar, eggs, chocolate chips, vanilla extract and dissolved espresso powder (hence the “pick me up.” As if that weren’t enough chocolate, they are coated in a thin layer of chocolate sour cream frosting once they are baked and have had a chance to cool. You probably won’t be able to eat just one!

One way to make Father’s Day great is by baking cupcakes for the man being honored. These cupcakes are made from unsweetened cocoa powder, instant espresso powder and brewed espresso, giving them a “kick” that will help jump start Father’s Day. They are decorated with green tinted cream cheese frosting that has been piped on to look like grass, before being topped with a few choice accessories, like a golf tee, a golf ball and small toothpick flag adorned with the words “Happy Father’s Day!”

With these vanilla dog cupcakes, the unique-ness isn’t in the batter – it’s in the decorations. Take standard vanilla cupcakes (although you can make them chocolate if you so choose) and then top them with homemade, creamy mocha frosting. Caramels, Wilton eyes, black jellybeans, marshmallows and pink starburst candies all become the parts of the dog’s face. Use a special “grass tip” to get the frosting to look like fur and then decorate. The results are almost too cute to eat!
