Snow Cone Cupcake Tutorial

In case you've totally missed all the fun this far, Cupcakery (my book) is officially here! This last week has been a whirlwind of emotions as I was able to watch you guys share your excitement while receiving your books over social media. From the bottom of my heart, I can not thank you enough. While I have many many many more sobbing thank you's I'm going to save those for another post later ... [ read more... ]

O-fish-ally Number 1 Dad Cupcakes!

I learned a little lesson this week, like no matter what mom says, sometimes there really aren't many more fish in the sea. Sometimes there are only six fish in the sea. Particularly, six little cupcake fish who found their time here in the ocean with chocolate bubbles would last no longer then one minute (give or take a few moments). Had I know this...maybe I would have snapped the camera a ... [ read more... ]

Strawberry Banana Cupcakes

Inspiration really can one from anywhere. Like cake stands. I really should probably tell you that I made these cupcakes because I love banana and strawberry together, or that my kiddos requested them, or because it's my favorite smoothie combo ever...but that would be a total fib. See that pretty little cake stand? I found it at our local PX (military post exchange) and it was like THE perfect ... [ read more... ]

Lemon-Lime Cheesecake Cupcakes

One of my favorite things about baking, is proving myself wrong over and over. I know, weird right? But it's true. I love to break my own boundaries, discover new things, and realize that maybe I actually do love that flavor I've always said I don't like at all…wait did I just admit to behaving like a picky toddler? Let's take our citrus friends lemon and lime for example, the BFF's of ... [ read more... ]

Red Velvet Cream Cheese Cupcakes

Some times you just have to break rules. Like posting classic Red Velvet Cream Cheese Cupcakes a few weeks after Valentine's day. Such a rebel I tell ya. Anywho, one of the things I tend to be awful about it getting "basics" posted to the blog - because I always over think them! I'm over here thinking what crazy new idea I can make next and you guys are like hello...we need sugar cookies, ... [ read more... ]

Strawberry Malt Cupcakes

Are you guys sick of pink yet? I hope not, because if so…you might be reading the wrong blog. I kid, I kid. I know I've been on a bit of a pink kick lately…but to be fair…it is that time of year. But for those of us who can't get enough…#pinkeverything! But seriously you could hate on these pink Strawberry Malt cupcakes with whipped cream ruffle tops and glittery heart rings can you? I mean come ... [ read more... ]

Snowball Cupcakes

Unfortunately things aren't always sprinkles and fluffy frosting around here, oh how I wish they were but sometimes things get messy, you know life happens. And being a military family, most days I feel like we have an extra dose of crazy always hanging around. In the spirit of keeping it real, I have to be honest and tell you today, is one of those days. We've been challenged to make some big ... [ read more... ]
