Pink Velvet Cupcakes

I was asked to make some cupcakes and cookies for a baby shower, where the color scheme was pink and grey. Immediately, for the cupcakes, I thought of pink cakes with grey frosting – and pink velvet seemed a logical way to accomplish that. I used my Red Velvet Cupcake and Cream Cheese Frosting recipes, […]

Pumpkin Cheesecake Frosting

As you may remember, I had a few cupcakes left over after the great nugget experiment of 2012. Not wanting the remainder to go to waste, I decided to frost them. And, since it’s technically autumn (despite the temperature fluctuating from 106ºF to 65ºF back up to 92ºF in the course of 10 days), I wanted to […]

Cupcake Nuggets

You heard me.  You may recall that last week I posted about some tasty vanilla cupcakes, but I actually found that recipe after drooling over reading this nugget one, also from Cupcake Project. I’m slightly terrified of boiling oil, but a friend assured me she was up for the task of frying, if I could […]

Jack Daniel’s Caramel Cupcakes

A friend of mine had a birthday party recently. It was one of those events that spans both hours and miles, which was actually quite considerate of her. Living in LA is sometimes unlike anywhere else, in that people don’t want to drive a few miles to a different part of town if they don’t […]

Cookies and Cream Frosting

I wanted to shake things up a bit recently, and not just use plain ol’ vanilla frosting for my yummy chocolate cupcakes. I’d recently purchased some Oreos, thanks to some effective ad campaigns for its 100th birthday, and in a desperate attempt not to eat the entire package all by myself, I decided to incorporate them into […]

Rockstar Cupcakes

Check out some cute manly cupcakes I made for a Rock ‘n Roll birthday party for a totally rockin’ dude. I used my chocolate cupcake base with a vanilla buttercream frosting. I topped each cupcake with a skull and crossbones made from royal icing, and drew on their little, precious manly faces with edible marker. I […]

Apple Spice Cupcakes

I know, I know, you’ve missed me. Look, it gets hot here in the summer and that translates to me not feeingl like doing a dang thing. The great thing is that suddenly it became fall here! I don’t know what happened – last Sunday I’m out on the tennis court getting a sunburn in […]

Cherries and Cream Cupcakes

**UPDATE — Holy crap! I actually won this month’s Mystery Box Cupcake Challenge! Thank you to everyone who voted, and thank you again to Jamieanne for hosting! WOOOO!** It’s a sad time in the cupcake world… the last Mystery Box Cupcake Challenge. As hard as it is for Jamieanne to believe it’s been a year […]

Strawberry Cupcakes

Strawberries have been “in season” recently in Southern California since we’ve been having some freak hot weather lately. Couple that with finding a great blackberry cupcake post on Starting to Simmer, one of my recent competitors in the Mystery Box Cupcake Challenge over on Sweetest Kitchen, and you have a recipe for cupcake magic. Since in […]

The Big 1(01)!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have reached 101 posts during the rule of this empire. It’s pretty insane, actually, because when I started this blog I didn’t even tell anyone it existed, and not only that, but I’ve actually kept with it for this long. It’s also surprising I’ve hit this milestone considering I’ve gone chunks […]
