Pomegranate Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Frosting

February 6, 2011 at 5:38 am (Uncategorized)

It’s still pomegranate season and I’m definitely enjoying it, and so  I wanted to do a pomegranate cupcake.  I didn’t find one that I liked around, so I just adapted the apple cider cupcake from a while ago.

Gingerbread Cupcakes

January 16, 2011 at 4:32 am (Chocolate, Cupcakes, gingerbread)

So I wanted to do a holiday cupcake.  But I wasn’t really home over the holidays, and then it was sort of late in the season…but I still wanted to do a holiday cupcake.  Originally I was thinking eggnog, but it was out of stores, and I’ve never actually had eggnog so that will wait until next year.  So instead I decided on a gingerbread cupcake.

Apple Cider Cupcakes

December 15, 2010 at 4:40 am (apple, gingerbread, Uncategorized)

I was feeling very fall despite the almost-Christmas time frame we’re currently in, but I still wanted something fun and fall and nothing could be more fall than apple cider.  Granted, I don’t actually like apple cider by itself, but I was hoping for an apple-pie type taste and was not disappointed.

Chocolate Marshmallow Cream Cupcakes

December 7, 2010 at 6:00 am (Uncategorized)

 

I’m actually caught up!  (minus pictures.  fine :p).  I found this cute recipe when looking for a pumpkin pie for thanksgiving.  (I made the one from the same website – it was delicious and is highly recommended).  I didn’t have a great concrete plan for this week and was feeling more than a little bit lazy – and this recipe from JoyofBaking fit the bill perfectly.  So without further ado – Chocolate Marshmallow Cream Cupcakes!

Green Tea Pomegranate Cupcakes

November 20, 2010 at 4:19 am (Cupcakes, Matcha, Pomegranate)

So pomegranates are finally in season – and actually looking good and not just finally on the shelves.  So I decided to make that recipe that inspired me all the way back when I started my baking adventures.  So I returned to the Pomegranate Green Tea Cupcakes from chockylit.  I used the same green tea cupcake recipe as I did on round 1, and while I was inspired by chockylit’s frosting I ended up being a bit squicked by the uncooked egg-whites as a foam thing and made a somewhat soupy cream cheese frosting instead.

This time around I was looking for something simple but rich and delicious.  These cheesecake swirl brownies from Ooh, Look… caught my eye.  I’ve converted the ingredients below for a more American and measuring cup prone audience. 🙂

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Halloween Cupcakes

November 1, 2010 at 3:36 am (Cream Cheese, Cupcakes, Pumpkin)

Alright.  So once again I’ve failed at the whole keeping-up-with-the-blog thing.  However, I’m not skipping any recipes this time – so back to Halloween!
I wanted to make halloween themed cupcakes this year but I didn’t want to do them the week before since it was a Sunday – so Monday-after Halloween Cupcakes it was!  In typical fall fashion I wanted a nice pumpkin cupcake, with a decadant cream cheese frosting that could be topped with a tiny witch’s hat.

Dulce de Leche Cupcakes

October 27, 2010 at 6:06 am (Caramel, Chocolate, Cupcakes, Dulce de Leche)

So I wanted to make something with caramel in it because after the last chocolate-chocolate extravaganza I was craving something a little different.  So I decided to do dulce de leche since a) I’d been wanting to try making it and b) caramel-y things are yummy ^^

Unfortunately I couldn’t find just one recipe that worked – so I used one for the base and one for the frosting.  I also made the dulce de leche from scratch as well as buying some from Whole Foods, just in case.

Chocolate Chocolate Mousse Cupcakes with a Chocolate Ganache

October 4, 2010 at 4:23 am (Chocolate, Cupcakes)

I decided it was time for a nice decadent chocolate cupcake – plus I wanted to make my favorite chocolate mousse again and I thought turning it into a filled cupcake would be really delicious.  My biggest concern was whether or not the chocolate cupcake itself would be moist and delicious enough to pair with the mousse.
