A little Italy in Virginia: Cannoli, almond biscotti, gluten free tiramisu, vegan lemoncello and Nutella cupcakes

Posted by Jenny Louw at 5:17 AM 0 comments
These Italian dessert inspired cupcakes are by Richmond, Virginia bakery Carytown Cupcakes, via their Facebook page. What drew me to the cannoli cupcakes was that they looked like they were wearing crowns! Maybe they are, in a way. I love when one dessert inspires another, and these all look amazing. Carytown Cupcakes can be reached at info@carytown-cupcakes.com or 804-355-CAKE (2253) and you can find out more at carytown-cupcakes.com.

Cupcake-shaped Rice Krispie pops!

Posted by Jenny Louw at 7:49 AM 0 comments
Yes, cake pops have a new rival (I say "rival" jokingly because I think all desserts can happily coexist, sometimes literally on top of one another or combined in some way) with these sper fun Rice Krispie pops shaped like cupcakes! Blogger The Sweet Chick made them using something I didn't know existed: cupcake shaped cookie cutters! Bravo to her for combining two beloved desserts into one sweet snack.

Cupcakes I've never seen before: Ice cube cupcakes! Plus a cottontop tamarin, Darth Vader, a big elephant and a s'mores cucpake

Posted by Jenny Louw at 7:18 AM 0 comments
Leave it to the innovative Disney's Hollywood Studios to make cupcakes I've never seen before: ice cube cupcakes! Via Disney Food Blog. These were posted in November 2011, and were holiday ice cubes. From the post: "According to Sue, it seems to be a regular chocolate cupcake. From the look of it, it seems to be “dusted” with snow and features a twinkly light-up ice cube in the middle! Kind of like a snowy iceberg floating out at sea!"



This would be a good time to tell you that right now the Disney Food Blog 2012 Cupcake Crawl is going on! Check out the post for details.

Other Disney cupcake offerings, all via posts at Disney Food Blog, which I highly recommend for its always-fun and sometimes over-the-top posts about items you never would've imagined: a cottontop Tamarin cupcake, Darth Vader and a giant elephant! And my still-favorite cupcake flavor: s'mores.

Bomb Pop Cupcakes

Posted by Jenny Louw at 6:00 AM 0 comments

June is almost gone and July is nearly here! With Independence Day on it's way I thought these Bomb Pop Cupcakes might be perfect for your next barbecue or family party! Created by Oh-Lolaaa via Tumblr, this recipe is easy to follow and looks amazing!


Cupcake base
1 Box Lemon Cake Mix (I use Duncan Hines)
4 eggs1 cup buttermilkAmount of oil called for on box1 Tablespoon lime juice
1 (4 serving size) box Raspberry Jell-O
5 tablespoons milk
6 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cherry extract
1 1/2 teaspoon raspberry extract
1 1/2 teaspoon lime extract or lime juice
blue gel food coloring
red gel food coloring


Preheat oven to 350. Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, buttermilk, oil, and lime juice. Mix on low speed with an electric mixer for about 30 seconds or until well combined.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and increase mixer speed to medium. Beat for 2 minutes.
Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter and bake for about 15 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched.
Remove from oven and let pans cool on wire racks.
Once cupcakes have cooled, remove from pans and poke holes in the tops with a wooden skewer.
In a medium bowl, stir together:
1 cup boiling water
Carefully spoon Jell-O mixture over cupcakes, allowing it to soak into the holes.

Frosting
3 sticks butter, softened to room temperature
wooden popsicle sticks for garnish
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter and milk on low speed until barely combined. Increase to medium speed and mix until well blended.
Add powdered sugar and beat on low speed until combined. Increase speed to medium and beat for about 2 minutes, until light and fluffy.
Measure one cup of frosting into a bowl. Split the remaining frosting evenly into two other bowls.
Add the cherry extract and desired amount of red color to the bowl with only one cup of frosting. In another bowl, stir the lime juice into the frosting. In the other, add the raspberry extract and desired amount of blue color.
Pipe the blue raspberry frosting on the cupcakes, followed by the lime and cherry frosting.  Insert a popsicle stick in the middle of the cupcakes.
**Depending on how high you want to pipe the frosting on your cupcakes, you may want to double the frosting recipe.
