Carrot and Orange Cupcakes with Orange Brown Sugar Buttercream

Carrot and Orange Cupcakes with Orange Brown Sugar Buttercream

‘Tis the season for carrot cake, and there are sure to be hundreds of recipes for cupcake versions too, but we like this refreshing twist on an old favorite.

Start with…well…carrot cake, and add a bit of orange zest and juice, top that off with brown sugar buttercream also spiked with orange, and you may find carrot cake can be more appetizing than you previously thought!

Who else is ready for spring? It’s taking a little too long this year, right? The groundhog may have issued us another few weeks, but these carrot cake cupcakes can bring you everyone’s favorite season a little early.

These cupcakes scream Spring, and don’t worry they are as easy to decorate as they are to make. And the recipe is modified to make 4 big cupcakes, rather than 12 regular sized, because who doesn’t want a bigger cupcake? What’s more, they can even be made in a toaster oven!

Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes with Earl Grey Buttercream and Salted Caramel

Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes with Earl Grey Buttercream and Salted Caramel

You might think it sounds like a strange combination, but the moist, slightly bitter dark chocolate cake is heavenly when you add the fluffy meringue-style icing with a hint of bergamot.

It’s pretty much chocolate and orange! And salted caramel goes with everything. Why not shake up your Sunday cup of tea?

Fresh-Squeezed Mimosa Cupcakes

Fresh-Squeezed Mimosa Cupcakes

Today we’re drinking mimosas and eating them too. Bakers, let’s brunch. Cocktails and cupcakes.

Think about those two for a second. Does it get any better than that pairing? Throw weekend brunch in there and the answer is no, it does not get any better. Because weekends are made for champagne in your cupcakes. Ok?

Gingerbread and peppermint recipes are starting to pop up, and we are not complaining, but it’s technically still Autumn, so we think pumpkin cupcakes are still acceptable.

This classic recipe pairs yummy pumpkin flavor with the complementary texture of cream cheese frosting for a perfect start to the week back to work after a holiday of feasting, family time and maybe even shopping. You deserve it!

Pumpkin Walnut Spider Cupcakes

Pumpkin Walnut Spider Cupcakes

What’s scarier.. spiders or snakes? Luckily we don’t have to worry about smashing these spiders! They are actually invited to the halloween party!

These spider cupcakes start with pumpkin walnut cupcake batter, and that might just be my favorite part! They are pretty simple to make and they have great flavor from the brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and pumpkin puree. The walnuts add a great crunch and I’m pretty sure walnuts and pumpkin go together like peanut butter and chocolate 🙂 The only thing you’ll have to worry about with these adorable spiders is how to eat them!
