These cupcakes are a spin off of the popular cookies and cream cupcakes , which I am still having dreams about. Dreams so vivid, that I can taste them in my sleep. Or . . . maybe that is just the cookies I was eating in bed. Kidding!
Let’s face it: sometimes we all need a dessert that only makes two servings. Sometimes we just can’t handle 12 servings. Sometimes we eat them all by ourselves.
I have a strange relationship with sweets. I’m kind of obsessed with making them, but I’m not really that much into eating them. I don’t have a big sweet tooth (I’ll take wine and cheese over cookies almost any day of the week). And when I do get hit with a sweets craving, it’s usually short-lived.
You know the story – girl meets recipe and falls in love after seeing recipe across the crowded internet. The recipe looks a bit different from what she is used to so girl is instantly intrigued. After the first tempting glimpse, girl can’t get recipe out of her mind. Recipe even features in girl’s dream that evening. Girl wakes up, thanks the gods of culinary fate that she has the ingredients to make that recipe and so begins the love story of the girl who met a Zebra cake. Tuty’s lovely blog Scent of Spice was the blog that first introduced me to this amazing Zebra cake.

Recipe by: Kairockz This is the treat my children love to make themselves after a good term at school or when they have a friend staying. One cake is big enough to share between 2 children if you can convince them of it!!!
As I mentioned on Friday, I have been doing some experimentation with the beer and chocolate combination. The Guinness-chocolate ice cream that I made totally kicked butt, so I couldn’t wait to see how I liked beer and chocolate in my cake. The answer?
Chocolate cake and I have had a very interesting romance. I started off with quite an intense dislike of chocolate cake. I KNOW. But try not to judge me too harshly, I had many bad experiences with store-bought dry, dense mudcakes covered in grainy baking chocolate icing. So every year when I asked Regex Man what cake he would like for his birthday and every year he replied me with "Chocolate
Cinco de Mayo will soon be here (May 5th for those non-Spanish speakers). Though it’s a Mexican holiday, here in Southern California, Cinco de Mayo celebrations are pretty widespread… mostly an excuse to eat Mexican food and partake in downing a few margaritas. We had a party last year for that very reason.
Apple Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes By Stefani Pollack Be sure to leave your kitchen while these apple pecan cinnamon roll cupcakes are baking. When you reenter the room, you’ll get to experience a sensational smell that is so strong you can almost see it cartoonishly wafting from your oven directly to your nose. When the cupcakes are done, quickly drizzle the tops with apple cider glaze. Then, dive into your works of art, making sure to lick the warm, gooey apple cinnamon pecan filling off of your fingers as you go.
