Chocolate Cupcakes with Blackberry Basil Buttercream

Chocolate Cupcakes with Blackberry Basil Buttercream

So much for trying to post weekly…Perhaps monthly is a more reasonable goal. Since today is the unofficial last day of summer I wanted to post these cupcakes while they still felt somewhat seasonally appropriate.  This flavor combination is spot on. Fresh basil is infused into a buttercream with chunks of fresh blackberries on top…

Champagne Cupcakes with Raspberry Filling

Champagne Cupcakes with Raspberry Filling

We rang in 2014 with a quiet evening watching the ball drop in NYC, drinking and eating champagne in cupcake form, and hanging with our girls. Yup, you heard me right. Bonnie now has a little sister named Bella we adopted a few days ago. Maybe we are insane because Bonnie is such a good…

Funfetti Cupcakes

Funfetti Cupcakes

Funfetti cupcakes are the perfect celebratory dessert for a birthday, or a great treat to insert a little happiness and color into a plain ol’ weekday. I made these cupcakes for the second reason, and am posting for the first reason because today is the blog’s 2nd birthday! I can’t believe it’s been two years…

Angel Food Cupcakes with Strawberry Mascarpone Frosting

Angel Food Cupcakes with Strawberry Mascarpone Frosting

After all the meat that was consumed on Game of Thrones night, I thought we might want a light dessert to follow. In comes these angel food cupcakes— so much lighter, fluffier, and tastier than anything you can buy at the grocery store. No spongey cake here. These cupcakes are great when you want an…

Samoa Cupcakes

Samoa Cupcakes

To distract myself from officially making the biggest decision of my life (I think I know where the best fit is but I just can’t quite commit), I am baking. A lot. Nothing to drown the overwhelming thoughts of my overactive brain, like loads of sugar. Good thing we upped our time at the gym.…

{Cookie Dough Stuffed} Brown Sugar Cupcakes

{Cookie Dough Stuffed} Brown Sugar Cupcakes

I think I cookie-doughed myself out on my birthday a few weeks back. Between the cookie dough cinnamon rolls and these cookie dough stuffed cupcakes, I think I have curbed my seemingly incessant desire for my favorite dessert/food. Something I thought I’d never say. However, I do not think this will last long. I fully…

Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

I swear to you these cupcakes are not in support of the Green Bay Packers, despite the green and gold flags. I actually made these cupcakes for the Texans vs. Jets Monday Night Football game last week, and when I bought the decorations at Michael’s those were the only colors available. So let me repeat,…

Margarita Cupcakes

Margarita Cupcakes

I kept trying to think of Tex-Mex desserts to keep with our party’s theme, but I was having a tough time. I rarely looked at the dessert menu at Mexican restaurants because I was always full on chile con queso. All I could come up with was sopapillas, which we did engage in from time…

Vanilla Bird’s Nest Cupcakes

Vanilla Bird’s Nest Cupcakes

It’s Easter Sunday! The time has finally arrived that I can finally make the adorable bird’s nest cupcakes I’ve been seeing on foodgawker for weeks. First, make your favorite vanilla cupcake recipe. I used this recipe with yogurt as a base to reduce the amount of butter in the cupcakes to make them a little healthier.  I used…

Guinness Cupcakes with Bailey’s Irish Buttercream

Guinness Cupcakes with Bailey’s Irish Buttercream

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day coming up, we made some boozy cupcakes to celebrate. It’s amazing how well Guinness and chocolate pair together and make a delicious and moist cake. You don’t really taste the Guinness (or else I probably wouldn’t like it), but it gives the cake a flavor distinctly different from  your…
