Pineapple Mojito Cupcakes

Mmmm….pineapple, lime and mint!  These cupcakes from Kelly Stillwell taste just like a pineapple mojito without the alcohol.  I suspect there is a way to sneak in some white rum or, ahem, other alcohol if you so prefer.  Try it and let us know.  Or maybe some coconut in the frosting?

Salted Caramel Brownie Cupcakes

Salted Caramel Brownie Cupcakes

All Day I Dream About Food lists these cupcakes as “low carb”.  Hmmm…..that wasn’t what initially caught my eye – the brownie and salted caramel part is what made me take notice.  I do note the recipe calls for a sugar substitute which may be good or bad depending on how you feel about sugar substitutes.

Cupcake Heaven

I suppose “heaven” could be defined many ways depending upon what you like.  Let the Baking Begin defines heaven as dark chocolate, caramel, peanuts, and chocolate ganache.  That’s pretty accurate.  There is a lot going on here – two layers of frosting and caramel filling – but oh my.  This may be pretty close to cupcake […]

Wilton suggests adding blue food coloring to the cream cheese frosting for a patriotic look to these cupcakes.  I think fresh blueberries would be far more festive!

Pizzazzerie calls these “New York Style” black and white cupcakes, like the cookies.  Not sure about the reference to New York since we have the cookies here in Florida but that doesn’t really matter.  The cookies are to die for!  Imagine a the cookie is now a cake covered in half vanilla and half chocolate glaze.

If you’re like me, anything with “butter” or “cookie” in the name is automatically good.
