11 Cupcake Recipes You Must Try

cupcake recipesBonnie is the culinary connoisseur of the family, but I am still known for my penchant for cupcakes. It actually works out quite well. I find succulent cupcake recipes and Bonnie is usually the one that ends up whipping them up. We balance each other out well – so much so that we have contemplated opening a cupcake business. That’s a long story {and business plan} though, and I just have cupcakes on my mind. Delicious, fluffy, finger-licking cupcakes. My dilemma is that  my family has decided to participate in  a weight loss challenge for the New Year. We each have put up $50 and the person who loses the most weight by the end of March will win the pot {I’ve already lost fifteen lbs – Money is a cogent motivator!}. It’s a marvelous plan, because it guarantees that all of us will lose at least a few pounds and someone will win big cash. The downside is that I cannot get my fix of the good stuff. My brother already sabotaged me once by taking me to an Italian bakery, so I cannot afford any more leniencies. Therefore, my only outlet is to convey to all of you all the amazingness that is cupcakes. I hope you enjoy! If you make any of these cupcake recipes, let us know how they turned out. I would love to hear how you much you love them during my time of abstemiousness from sweets. And, if you have any recipes that you love, let us know in the comments!

Bonnie becomes obsessed with smores during the summer. Mix that with my obsession with cupcakes and this is what you get. Pure unadulterated deliciousness that’s good any time of the year.

Creme Brulee Cupcakes

I have an affinity for creme brulee. If you like the sugary crust of creme brulee, try it out on a cupcake. It’s a culinary masterpiece.

Tiramisu Cupcakes

This one is all for Bonnie. She has a fondness for tiramisu that can only be described as over the top. There is even one memorable fight in a restaurant between her and our brother over the last piece of tiramisu that we all still remember. If you love tiramisu, this is a new way to get your fix.

So, go on and bake, because I can’t. I have many other cupcake recipes near and dear to my heart and there is more in posts to come.
