Betty Crocker’s The Big Book of Cupcakes

By on Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

If it weren’t for Betty Crocker, my family would starve, so I was pretty excited to discover The Big Book of Cupcakes! This soon-to-be-classic cookbook offers 175 cupcakes, most of which are simple reciples using common ingredients. Many of the recipes can be done using cake mixes and store-bought frosting, and of course, they can all be made from scratch for all you ambitious bakers out there! There’s also a chapter dedicated to kids’ parties. Here’s a sample tease for you, the Chocolate Moose Cupcake:

I am a huge fan of grasshopper iced coffee, so I’m pretty sure I’d also love these mint-chocolate flavored treats.  Especially with Andes mints crumbled on top.  Yum!

Decorative Halloween Cupcakes

By on Monday, August 29th, 2011

It happens every year, most people have just barely finished their back to school shopping and stores already have their Halloween merchandise out.  That is how I found out about these $10.00 Halloween decorative cupcakes that my mom spotted at her local TJMaxx/Homegoods and shared with me via text .  While it seems early to be buying Halloween decorations (it’s not even fall yet), I will admit that I am ready for some pumpkin cupcakes!

Peach Cobbler Cupcakes

By on Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Did you know that August is National Peach Month?  Go celebrate by picking yourself some fresh peaches and trying out a new cupcake recipe.  (You better hurry, though, because you’re almost out of time!)  This recipe was patterned after the peach cobbler cupcake at Chattanooga Cupcakes in Tennessee.  The batter and frosting contain hints of cinnamon, and of course, peaches.
