Twinkie Cupcakes

Twinkie Cupcake, cream filling

Twinkies are a pop culture icon, as well as a snack cake. They’re something that everyone can recognize, even if your mom never packed one of the cream filled sponge cakes in your lunchbox when you were a kid.

Blueberry Swirl Cupcakes

This year was a great year for berries and I made all kinds of berry desserts with my farmers’ market finds, from berry cobblers to strawberry shortcakes.

Browned Butter Cupcakes with Brown Butter Cream Cheese Frosting

Browned Butter Cupcakes, bitten

Browned butter is one of those ingredients that you really can’t go wrong with. It is delicious and improves just about anything that you might add it to by giving it a nutty and subtly addictive quality. These Browned Butter Cupcakes definitely deliver a good brown butter flavor, but, thanks to a double dose of this “secret ingredient” in the cake and the frosting, they’re ... Read More »

Watermelon Cupcakes

Watermelon Cupcakes

There are few things that are more refreshing on a very hot summer day than a slice of cool, sweet watermelon. It’s even better if you top it with a sprinkle of sea salt to make the melon seem even juicier. These Watermelon Cupcakes don’t have quite the same cooling effect as fresh melon, but they definitely capture the look! They’re fluffy, tender and will ... Read More »
