It’s amazing what you can do with a little cake mix. This recipe for raspberry lemonade cupcakes starts with a box of vanilla or white cake mix (your choice.) The raspberry extract, lemon zest, sour cream, buttermilk, lemon juice, eggs and canola oil are added to it, in lieu of the instructions on the back of the box. Once these have baked – use festive cupcake liners for an extra touch of whimsy – frost the cupcakes with homemade raspberry buttercream and enjoy!

For a slightly different take on the summertime dessert staples of cupcakes and meringue, try these meringue cupcakes. You get the best of both worlds: a light, fluffy cupcake stuffed full of creme fraiche, fresh raspberries and homemade raspberry curd, and the tastiness of an entire “cupcake” made of pink tinted meringue. Yes, you read that right: meringue. These cupcakes do not contain flour, milk, baking soda or any of the other traditional ingredients. Tasty and different, all at once!

In this recipe, almonds, chocolate and raspberries combine to form a light, fluffy, tasty and utterly unique treat. The batter contains chopped up chunks of fresh raspberries and almond extract, along with a whole host of more “standard” ingredients like flour, salt, butter, eggs and milk, among others. The chocolate is added later in the form of homemade chocolate ganche frosting. Top with a whole fresh raspberry, some sprinkles, or anything else that looks great. You won’t regret it!

Looking for a fresh, fruity, original cupcake recipe? Then this could be the one for you. Raspberries give a sweet zing and bursts of colour, with rosewater providing a wonderfully subtle floral scent. The decoration on these cupcakes is undeniably beautiful. Using actual rose petals sprinkled with sugar is a lovely touch which lends itself brilliantly to a themed tea party, and positioned on a tiered cupcake stand, would make a stunning substitute for a traditional wedding cake.

Want to make any day special or make an already special day even more special? Try these sinfully good Dark Chocolate Raspberry Ganache Cupcakes.

Cookie Cupcakes with Raspberry Fluff Frosting are a curious dessert. Is it a cookie or a cupcake? Yes. It is a cocoa cupcake with a sandwich cookie baked inside and topped with a raspberry buttercream marshmallow cream frosting. This sweet treat is light enough for an afternoon tea but rich enough for your favorite child’s birthday party or Sunday dinner. Not too sweet, not too tangy, this dessert fits in anywhere you serve it.
