Irish Car Bomb Cupcake Style

Every March I love to pull out the Irish Car Bomb flavor combination.  I’ve turned it into a crepe cake, a cake pop, and a cream puff.  Now we go back to the original using the flavors in a cupcake inspired by Brown Eyed Baker.  Here we have a Guinness cake filled with a whiskey …

A Sprinkle of Color

At the beginning of the school year, Hubs took the day off to escort the kids when they met their teachers.  At the time it was crazy busy at my 8-5 job and I appreciated him taking on our responsible parent duties.  Hubs came home and triumphantly stated he signed me up for cupcakes and …

Red Velvet Cupcakes

This seems like a good time of year to bring out some red velvet cupcakes.  If you aren’t one who likes the traditional chocolates and roses for your sweetie, maybe you should treat him or her to a dozen sweet red velvet and tangy cream cheese frosting cupcakes.

TTW: Gingerbread Cupcakes

When Tia said she was going to make a gingerbread cupcake, I sneered.  I scoffed.  I huffed and said “Who likes gingerbread?  I mean you’re forced to at Christmas time, but why would someone choose to eat it?”  Boy, was I wrong. People couldn’t get enough of it.  People who usually pass up sweets and …
