Happy leap year! Are you celebrating this day that only happens once every four years with cupcakes?  I think these leap frog cupcakes by Betty Crocker are the perfect way to celebrate the leap year!

Chocolate, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough, Toasted Marshmallow Cupcakes

By on Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

The name of these cupcakes is so long but they sound so delicious and like something I would make and love! Joy the Baker made these Chocolate, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough, Toasted Marshmallow cupcakes.  There’s so many different components to these cupcakes but each part seems to compliment the others.  Chocolate and peanut butter are one of my favorite combinations and I love the thought of cookie dough inside a cupcake.  After majoring in nutiriton in college I am well aware of the food safety issues related to eating raw cookie dough but who doesn’t love cookie dough?  Top the cupcakes off with a toasted marshmallow meringue and  you have one deliciously rich cupcake combination!

Today the black bean cupcake with guava frosting was supposed to make its debut at the Food Network’s South Beach Food & Wine Festival.  Who in the world thought up such a combination, you might be asking yourself?  Goya Foods, a well-known Hispanic foods company, and pastry chef Hedy Goldsmith came up with this recipe in response to the challenge to make a dessert using the company’s product line. Go here for a recipe and see what you think!


A Cupcake Birthday Party

By on Sunday, February 26th, 2012


I have always been a fan of themed parties.  I think it makes for easier party planning and I like it when things are coordinated!  The Sweetest Occasion blogged about Amory a four year old’s cupcake themed birthday party. The whole party is dedicated to cupcake decorating, both real cupcakes with frosting and sprinkles and paper craft cupcakes.  Even the party favors were cupcake props!  The pictures of the party make it look like a fun birthday for any age!

King Cake Cupcakes

Even though Mardi Gras (or Fat Tuesday) has already come and gone, I thought I would share this recipe anyway.  It’s never too late to begin planning for next year’s Mardi Gras feast, right?











Maybe next year you can give your party a little twist by serving up some of these King Cake Cupcakes with a cinnamon cream cheese filling.  Don’t forget to hide the plastic baby (or whatever object you choose to use) inside one of them!
