Fancy looking cupcakes don’t have to be hard to make. In-fact, I threw these cupcakes together in about an hour because I was too lazy to make something more complicated. But when I stepped back and looked at the end product, I realized I had made something pretty beautiful! So if you’re looking to wow your guests but don’t want to spend any real...

Every week, no matter what cupcakes I bring in, one of my co-workers always complains “it’s not chocolate banana”. Doesn’t matter how much she enjoys the cupcakes I make, she always gives me flack the whole week, because I never make chocolate banana cupcakes. Well guess what, Becky! I did! What are you gonna do now? (If you guessed eat three,...

Oh Red Velvet. Everyone loves you. It’s easily the most requested cupcake I have at work. But me? Not a fan. I just don’t get it. It’s basically chocolate cake with insane amounts of food coloring. But do people go crazy for chocolate cupcakes like they do for red velvet? Nope. So, I’m not a huge fan, and because of that, I’ve never really...

A few weeks ago, I got really excited, because I thought the blackberries around me were ripe. You probably saw the result of that. But now they’re actually ripe, for reals. And since last time I did something chocolate based, this time I did something lighter: Blackberry vanilla cake with a Swiss meringue blackberry buttercream frosting, all made from scratch...

I know what you’re thinking. Watermelon cupcakes?! That’s not a flavor I’d expect from a cupcake. And you’re totally right, it is a bit odd. But believe me, they’re delicious. How delicious? I actually broke into my own stash and ate one! This is one of those super easy from-a-box...

I’ve been doing Cupcake Monday for many years. I can whip out a simple batch of cupcakes easily enough. But sometimes I want a challenge. Something that’s going to take way too much effort, and is outside of my comfort zone. I almost always make a shortening or butter based frosting – these are ganache, something I’ve never ever made before....

I was walking down the baking isle at my local grocery store, when I came across an interesting box of cupcake mix. It was for Reese’s Peanut Butter & Chocolate. It was on sale so I thought “Hey, why not?”. I mean, it worked for cereal, surely it can work for cupcakes! The first thing...

When people see a fancy looking cupcake, they automatically assume I spent hours masterfully crafting all the ingredients from scratch. But in truth, I’m actually incredibly lazy, and far more likely to use cake mix, pre-made frosting, or both. For these cupcakes, I’m going to show you the art of using processed stuff in a box to make a truly American...

Most weeks, I usually bring in some sort of sugar-based frosting. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it gets the job done. But sometimes I like to bring in something more special – something that’ll make people give in to temptation and abandon their diet. A fruity buttercream is perfect for such occasions, and with raspberries currently in season,...
