Kids love these delicious cupcakes! Top them with mini or regular-sized oreos to give it that extra punch. These creamy, chocolatey cakes are a great potluck dish as well as a perfect pack-away snack.

The recipe above includes a whipped oreo cream topping that is a perfect addition to an already mouth-watering cupcake.


Have you heard the term "Lilikoi" before?

See results

These "lilikoi" cupcakes are sweet and tangy. Top them with the passion fruit pulp so that the cupcake is covered in a smooth, orange glaze that will make it look as delicious as it tastes.

Don't worry if you do not have any fresh lilikoi as you can use the canned pulp if it's out of season. If you read the comments below the recipe, you will see that those who made them with the canned pulp still found them delicious.

These cupcakes are great all year around. If you are trying to get rid of your Christmas candies, it's a great recipe. If you rid the recipe of candy canes, these make excellent peppermint cupcakes.

The photo above shows a baker's take on the cupcake. They added Hersey's white chocolate candy cane kisses, which are a great addition to the cupcake, especially with the white chocolate buttercream recipe you can find below.


Will you add the orange zest?

See results

These easy-to-make cupcakes are so tempting. The recipe tells you how to spice them up with a little orange zest if you want to add more flavor to these moist, tasty treats.

If you want an easy recipe that you can make in thirty minutes or less, these are the cupcakes for you.

      wow these all look wonderful. I have been having a hard time making frosting as it always comes a little too thin. I will try your recipes and see if we can get the right consistency. Thank you

      How did you do the beautiful "rose" frosting? They are so pretty. I'd like to be able to do that. Did you use a bag to make the rose design? I wrote a Hub on how to make a cup cake tower to show off cupcakes. When you have the time, check it out. Great Hub, here.
