And finally, flavored cupcakes. Most of the time I make either vanilla or chocolate cupcakes, but there are so many flavours to enjoy!
Caramel Apple Pie Cupcakes
I don’t think you’ll find a more fall-flavored cupcake recipe than the one for these caramel Apple Pie Cupcakes! The spiced cupcakes are topped with a cinnamon buttercream frosting, and apple pie filling – made from scratch with fresh apples – and the final flourish is cinnamon sugar pie crust, a drizzle of salted caramel sauce, and sprinkled with crushed cinnamon crackers
Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes
These Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes are topped with a fresh raspberry. You could add more raspberry flavor by drizzling with raspberry sauce, or stuffing the cupcake with a raspberry filling. I made these for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and stuck in some shop-bought paper flags, but they’re very easy to make yourself too. I made some Postage Stamp Food Picks that would work in cupcakes.
Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes
I added dried cherries and chocolate chips to these Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes and finally drizzled with melted chocolate – yum!
Cherry Coca-Cola Cupcakes
These Cherry Coca-Cola Cupcakes actually use Cherry Coke as an ingredient. Of course, they had to be topped off with a cherry!
Carrot Cake Cupcakes
I made some Carrot Cake Cupcakes for a friend as carrot cake is her favourite flavour. They were topped with little carrots that I made using candy melts, and are surprisingly easy to make. These cupcakes would be great at Easter too.
Black Forest Cupcakes
And if you love the flavours of black forest gateaux (like I do!), then these Black Forest Cupcakes hit the spot. In fact, turning your favorite flavours of cake into portable cupcake form is a good thing!
Fruit Salad Cupcakes
These Fruit Salad Cupcakes not only look awesome but taste delicious too! They are perfect for summer garden parties, or afternoon tea. Switch out the fruits to suit the season, for a yummy year-round fresh fruit cupcake!
Piña Colada Cupcakes
If you need a tropical or Hawaiian themed cupcake recipe, then why not base them on your favorite cocktail? These Piña Colada Cupcakes are based on my favourite tropical tipple! Don’t forget the cocktail umbrellas!
I hope you enjoy this selection of cupcakes for parties and celebrations! There will be more to come in the future, so make sure that you are part of The Pumpkin Patch so that you don’t miss a thing.
