New Recipe: Apple Spiced Cupcakes with Cinnamon Maple Bourbon Frosting http://buff.ly/1xhspAg   #cupcakes   #baking   #recipe  
It’s fall time and you know what that means? Pumpkin spiced – wait, I mean apples. Apple is a fall flavor too (don’t forget that). Anyway, knowing that fall would be coming to an end sooner than I would like for it to, I knew I needed to make a batch of apple spiced cupcakes. …

New Recipe: Spice Cake Cupcakes With Caramelized Banana, Caramel, And Rum Frosting - http://buff.ly/1zznPgZ #cupcakes   #recipe   #dessert  
Since I haven’t taken on the challenge of making spice cake cupcakes I figured what better time than now? Of course, before I actually started baking these cupcakes I knew I needed a frosting that would compliment spice cake and have a lot of flavor (and by flavor I mean good stuff). After a few …

How Baking Cupcakes is Like Blogging http://buff.ly/VmQybD +12 Stars Media  #cupcakes   #blogging

New Recipe: White Chocolate Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cupcakes #cupcakes   #recipes   #Christmas  
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Well, it’s almost here at least. With Christmas approaching us, I knew I needed to bake some holiday themed cupcakes (I mean, who wouldn’t want to do that?). And so, these hot chocolate cupcakes were born using only the best (and my favorite) chocolate; Ghiradelli’s peppermint bark …

Check out the most recent recipe on my blog: Peanut butter and dark chocolate cupcakes with English toffee http://buff.ly/1utyYx2 #cupcakes   #cupcakerecipes   #baking  
Recently, I celebrated my best friends belated birthday with his family, and what’s a birthday party without cake? Knowing my friend (boyfriend) as well as I do, I knew a peanut butter chocolate combo was in order. These turned out great and I was able to use a recipe for the chocolate cupcakes that I …

Peanut Butter Cup S'mores Cupcakes http://buff.ly/WbBZIt #cupcakes   #cupcakerecipes  
Fall time is just around the corner and I cannot contain my excitement for all the wonderful flavors of the season (just you wait for the pumpkin pie cupcakes). One of my favorite things about fall is the late night bonfires, and you can’t have a proper fall bonfire without some s’mores, right? That being …
