I recently read about Chasing Delicious’s blog as part of The Sweetest Occasion’s 2013 up and coming blog list from Alt Summit. Every one of Chasing Delicious’s recipes looks amazing. These rum caramel chocolate cinnamon cupcakes are complicated, requiring making three different parts, but the picture makes me think they would be worth all the work. I really wish I was one of his friends he talked about in the blog post and I could have tried one of these cupcakes!

Mini Football Cupcakes are the perfect dessert for a Superbowl party tomorrow. The cupcakes are festive and they are mini which means people are more likely to take them. I think people are more likely to take mini desserts because they don’t feel as guilty eating a small portion. On a night like Superbowl Sunday when there are tons of foods and desserts at parties I think you are better off brining a small bite sized dessert that way people can sample other things.
Project Domestication made these mini football cupcakes a few years ago but they are still one of my favorite football cupcakes because they are so easy to frost and decorate. Her cupcakes are chocolate-mint flavored but you can make any chocolate flavor you or your friends like!
For a few years now I have been reading The Little Red House’s blog but I somehow didn’t realize these Almond Cupcakes with Chocolate Coconut Buttercream were from her blog when I repinned the cupcakes on Pinterest. I have been trying to eat more almonds since the fall when I learned some of the latest research about almonds which help keep you full longer and keep blood sugars steady hours after consuming them. Almond cupcakes would count as eating almonds, right? Even if they don’t count, I still think these cupcakes sound and look great based on The Little Red House’s picture shown above.
This time of year is when everyone is on a healthy kick, my local whole foods is crowded with those looking to eat healthy. My local gym is crowded with those looking to be physically fit. With that in mind I’m sure a lot of people are avoiding cupcakes right now. But what if you chose a “healthy cupcakes”? I spotted these Beet & Kale Chocolate Cupcakes on The Realistic Nutritionist’s blog.
A little side note, I’m really excited to have found this blog, it means there are other nutritionists and dietitians who love cupcakes as much as I do. Continuing with the cupcakes, the realistic nutritionist claims that these cupcakes are a dream come true because they have vegetables in them but do not taste like vegetables! There are only 191 calories per serving and low in fat, so all of the resolutioners out there can enjoy a little “healthy” cupcake.
If your house is anything like mine I’m sure your spending today baking and cooking! We already have three types of cookies made and a fourth cookie dough chilling. I have a feeling we wont have time to make cupcakes but if we were going to I would bake these skinny gingerbread cupcakes with sweet cinnamon glaze by The Scrumptious Pumpkin. Gingerbread and cinnamon are two flavors and smells that remind me of Christmas and these cupcakes are supposed to be healthy! What kind of cupcakes does your family bake for the holidays?
