German Chocolate Cupcakes 

These cupcakes were requested for a birthday gift. I was hesitant to make them because I make all my cupcakes from scratch but the coconut pecan frosting I used on these is store bought.  It’s too much work to make the frosting and the store bought tastes great. The cupcakes and chocolate frosting is made from scratch.

Strawberry Cupcake Basket

Baking with Strawberries  is a great way to celebrate summer. I made this strawberry cupcake basket for a Birthday party centerpiece.

Cupcake Shoe Cake

A friend of mine sent a picture of a cupcake shoe to me over a year ago and I had told her I would make it one day. Well today I made one.  The cake is marble with pink and purple buttercream frosting. The shoe is made with a red velvet cupcake. I used a graham cracker and smoothed white chocolate on it for the sole of the shoe. The heel is made with a sugar cone dipped in white chocolate.


Snickers Candy Cupcake


This snicker bar cupcake was made using the left over halloween candy. I baked some chocolate cupcakes, then cored the center making sure to reserve the top to place over the filling. I filled each cupcake with a mixture of chopped snickers and caramel topping sauce.

I then made a caramel frosting and piped on the frosting and topped each cup with a small piece of snicker candy bar.
After looking at a picture of the cupcakes, I thought they looked boring. I decided to drizzle chocolate and caramel syrup on them.
