4th of July Red Velvet Mini Cupcakes with Extra Vanilla-y Buttercream

Now that summer is in full swing, Independence Day is just around the corner, and nothing says “celebrate” like cupcakes. If you’re like us, sometimes a full cupcake in summer heat can be a little much, which is what makes these mini versions absolutely perfect.

Not only are these little goodies the perfect size for snacking, they’re also red, white and blue in American tradition and topped with an extra oomph of vanilla. They’ll be the stars of the show!

Classic White Cupcakes

Classic White Cupcakes

White cake is a birthday party staple (okay and chocolate too!) and while a box mix is pretty good (no shame!) these white cupcakes are SO GOOD!

They are light, fluffy, & extra white since you only use egg whites and clear vanilla extract. They are incredibly moist and have great flavor.

These Piña colada cupcakes may become your new favorite sweet treat, especially if you love piña colada cocktails!

It all starts with a rich coconut AND pineapple cupcake with some rum in it that makes you feel like you are eating a cocktail. I also used coconut rum in the cupcakes and it was a great addition. To top it off all, these cupcakes are topped with sweet coconut cream cheese frosting!! So so good!!

Licorice Delight: Vanilla Almond & Anise Cupcakes

Licorice Delight: Vanilla Almond & Anise Cupcakes

If you’re not a fan of black jelly beans or licorice that isn’t red, you certainly won’t be the first person on the planet. But these anise cupcakes somehow manage to capture just enough of the licorice flavor to thrill the tastebuds instead of turning them off.

Think vanilla almond cupcakes topped with whipped vanilla bean frosting, spiked with just a touch of anise flavoring. It seems like these treats might be the perfect amount of sweet and the perfect amount of “I only need one.”

Happy Cinco de Mayo! As a designated drinking holiday in the United States (inexplicably), it’s only right that we share a margarita cupcake recipe in celebration.

These cupcakes are margaritas in perfect cupcake form, featuring tequila spiked cupcakes topped with tequila lime frosting and a touch of fleur-de-sel. Everyone knows it’s better not to indulge on an empty stomach, so be sure to eat a few before party-time!

Lemon-Limoncello Cupcakes

Lemon-Limoncello Cupcakes

These cupcakes are absolutely superb! There’s nothing like a fresh, lemon tasting dessert of any kind!

I think the limoncello in this recipe gives the cupcake a great and different kind of lemon flavor, definitely like nothing I’ve ever had before. I also really like the lemon curd filling, it’s just delicious to bite into!
