If you are anything like me, you love to try new recipes but worry that recipes found are the internet may not be high quality.   Never fear, All Recipes is here! Check out this recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes. It has 4 1/2 stars out of 5 and has been review by 870 bakers! I love reading the reviews and seeing how some people modify the recipes for dietary concerns and taste preferences. Sounds like a good one to try out this weekend!

This cupcake makes me smile. I’ve seen rainbows on top of cupcakes before. But this is the first time I can remember seeing a rainbow in a cupcake. This pic was taken by Jonathan Syer, who loves to photograph cupcakes! (Who doesn’t?)

Let It Snow Cupcakes

By on Friday, January 18th, 2013


It snowed last night in North Carolina! Sadly it didn’t stick but I still managed to get a delay from it!  Thinking about the snow has me longing for a real snow day where the bare trees end up looking like these let it snow cupcakes created by Not Your Momma’s Cookie.  She used melted chocolate and a tree template to create the trees.  White chocolate and sparkling sugar were added to create the snowy effect.  She says she entered the cupcakes in a creative holiday recipe contest, I hope she won!

Girl Scout Cupcakes

By on Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

It’s Girl Scout Cookie season again.  I think Girl Scout cookies are pretty great (although I was a Girl Scout myself, so my opinion is slightly biased), and I can’t imagine that one could go wrong with a Girl Scout Cookie Cupcake.  These Samoa Cupcakes look SO delicious, and Samoas just-so-happen to be my hands-down favorite Girl Scout cookie.  If I knew a Girl Scout, I would definitely have to buy a box (or two or three) just to make this recipe!

Almond Cupcakes with Chocolate Coconut Buttercream

By on Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

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.
