Tiramisu Cupcakes {For My Birthday Today!} Today I ring in the big 3-1.

Tiramisu Cupcakes {For My Birthday Today!}

No longer am I merely 30, but I am in my 30′s. So weird, especially since I still don’t really feel too much like a grown up And as I like to do every year, I baked something new and different to celebrate with. It sort of reminds me of being a kid when you’d bring treats to school to share with the class on your birthday (did anyone else do this?). This is me bringing treats in for the class and sharing with all of you :) Since today I am en route to a Florida vacation with my Chief Culinary Consultant (woo!)

Next to cheesecake, tiramisu is one of my all-time favorite desserts. Tiramisu Cupcakes. The Story #1: If enough people email me to make a recipe for something, I get around to it.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes - The Hazel Bloom. These Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes started out being something a little different.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes - The Hazel Bloom

First, I thought I wanted to make a blondie cupcake. I mean, brownie cupcakes like this one are the bomb, so a blondie cupcake can’t be far behind. Then I decided I wanted to add chocolate chips. It was necessary. Then I made the brown sugar buttercream, which, with its butter, brown sugar and vanilla, tasted to me, just like cookie dough. At that point, this cupcake was straight-up Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcake, 100%, all the way. The cupcake itself is reminiscent of a Toll House Cookie bar, but, you know, in cupcake form. Yeah, these are pretty sinful. Recipe type: Dessert. Mint Chocolate Cupcakes. I decided to take a different approach with the whole chocolate/mint holiday theme.

Mint Chocolate Cupcakes

I love candy canes (aka peppermint), and I wanted to share a minty recipe for the holidays but minus the candy canes. I don’t know. Call me picky. I’ve just seen a lot of chocolate/peppermint recipes lately, so I wanted to stir it up a bit. And, while I am not being all that original, these cupcakes satisfied my cravings for a sweet mint flavor without the strong tang of peppermint. And, to be honest with you, this recipe took a lot of work. But, my friends, the hard work (as usual) was very much worth the effort. In summary, these mint chocolate cupcakes are fantastic and you should try making them as soon as possible. :) Mint Chocolate Cupcakes Servings: 18 Ingredients For the cupcakes: Chocolate Mocha Cupcake.

Don’t be fooled by the pretty piping. I dare you to bite into that highly stacked chocolate buttercream frosting and not get it all over your face. Remember those Carls Jr. commercials, “If it doesn’t get all over the place it doesn’t belong in your face”? If you haven’t seen them, then I can quickly tell you, they were lame. I understand the commercial(s) were geared towards 18-28 year-old-males, well I’m assuming this, since it usually starred a hot young woman eating a messy burger in a white blouse. Not being the target the audience for those commercials you may think that’s why it wasn’t for me. Samoas Cupcakes. Key Lime Cupcakes. I don't think there are enough key lime cupcake recipes out there.

Key Lime Cupcakes

When I got the idea to make some, I didn't find many recipes on the Web and I ended up adapting a lemon cake recipe. The result was a moist cupcake lightly fragrant with key lime, which was echoed in the frosting. To boost the key lime factor, you can add more zest. Lime oil is another possibility, but adding more juice could dilute the batter. But considering the praise these got, I think their lime factor was just fine.

Toffee Crunch Cupcake. Toffee Crunch Cupcake Toffee Crunch Cupcake with Caramel Frosting ~ Grab your toffee crunch in a cupcake crumb with a little caramel frosting dipped in some chocolate and rimmed with chocolate covered toffee bits.

Since I'm feeling a bit under the weather, I hope these cupcakes will help you to forgive me. Coconut and pineapple have always been on my list of favorite fruits. I used to buy gallons of organic coconut pineapple juice at the store (which I would try not to drink in one sitting). For some reason it never occurred to me to combine this wonderful combination with alcohol. Chocolate Cupcakes, Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe, Vanilla Frosting.

It’s surprising because as I write this I am facing the window and all I can see are giant falling snowflakes. But today is no different; I have summer on the brain. So what’s a girl to do? I whipped up a batch of Hot Fudge Sundae Cupcakes in honour of my favourite season, summer. Growing up we didn’t often indulge in sweet baked treats like cupcakes or frosted cakes. The fridge was always stocked with fresh fruit and during the summer months we need only walk out the back door to the yard to pick fresh peaches, apricots, pears, apples or grapes from my father’s carefully tended to garden. The one treat we always had on hand was ice cream. Snickerdoodle Cupcakes & Cookies » Savour the Senses.
