Big Book of Cupcakes: 150 Brilliantly Delicious Dreamcakes

A cupcake is supposed to make you want to grab it and scarf it down, enjoying every bit of tender cake and sweet frosting as you eat it. They remind you of treats that your mother made – even when she used a mix – and bake sales you attended as a kid and put all of those memories into one delicious, single-serving treat. Cupcakes ...

My Little Cupcake Cake Pop Mold

Cupcake Pop Mold

Cake pops are popping up everywhere these days. They are on blogs, in bakeries that want to make good use of leftover cake and frosting and are even sold at Starbucks.

Filled cupcakes seem like a challenging thing to make at home at first glance. With a regular cupcake, it’s easy to see how to put some frosting on top of the cake, but figuring out how to get the filling inside is not quite as obvious. Fortunately, it is easier than it looks to fill cupcakes and there is absolutely no reason not to make ... Read More »

Root Beer Float Cupcakes

Root Beer Float Cupcakes, in progress

I have been itching to make some root beer cupcakes with my bottle of Sonoma Syrup Co’s Root Beer Syrup because the syrup is so flavorful and seemed like it would pass on a great root beer flavor into baked goods. The syrup has concentrated the root beer flavor and it comes through much more strongly (and more naturally) than using root beer-flavored extract might. ... Read More »

Fresh Cherry Cupcakes

Fresh Cherry Cupcakes

Fresh cherries make me think of cobblers and pies, not necessarily of cakes and cupcakes. When I do bake cakes with cherries, I usually default to frozen or jarred cherries because they are so convenient. This time, I got myself out of the rut and used fresh cherries in a batch of Fresh Cherry Cupcakes. At first glance, you might think that putting fresh fruit ... Read More »
