Chocolate and Goat Cheese Cupcakes

By on Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

I love goat cheese! I am constantly adding goat cheese to sandwiches, salads, pasta dishes and now that I have found Buttercream Blonde’s recipe for chocolate and goat cheese cupcakes, I think I will be adding goat cheese to cupcakes!  These nontraditional cupcakes definitely sound like something unique food lovers will enjoy.  The cupcakes are made up of three of my favorite things, a buttermilk chocolate cake, goat cheese frosting, and are topped with red wine reduction!

Cupcakes for the First Day of Spring

By on Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

Here in the Windy City, with highs in the 80s today, it feels as if we are celebrating the first day of summer instead of the first day of spring.  In celebration of the first official day of spring, warmer weather and blooming flowers, I thought I would post several flower cupcakes.

Salted Caramel Cupcakes

By on Monday, March 19th, 2012

Have you jumped on the salted caramel bandwagon?  I feel like everything is suddenly marketed as having salted caramel in it and honestly I am a fan! I love the salty sweet combo!  I am very excited about this recipe for salted caramel cupcakes because the Cake website claims that it is the best cupcake ever.  I think will have to make these cupcakes and see for myself if they are worth doubling the recipe as Paige of Style suggests.  The best part is that the toppers, shown to the left, are included in the original blog post!
