Fabulously Sweet

A Dash of This & A Pinch of That

IMG_1205

St.Patrick’s day = booze! At least in these cupcakes it does. This is the most I have every baked with alcohol in one dessert. You have Guinness beer, Irish Whiskey and my favorite, Bailys Irish Cream Liquor. All of these combined creates the flavors of that ‘oh-so-famous’ shot, the Irish Car-Bomb. I personally have never done one, have heard of them, seen them taken and made them back in my bar-tending days. And creating these cupcakes was just as fun […]

It’s that time of year again…the holidays are upon us and when Starbucks rolls out their ‘red’ cups, that is when I begin my holiday planning! Department stores begin playing ‘Jingle bells…’, Santa’s helpers stand on corners, ringing bells and sweet yummy smells start to drift out of my kitchen. This is the time when you don’t worry about fitting into that ‘yellow-polka-dot’ bikini, when you can eat and ‘should’ eat all the scrumptious o’rdeuarvs at holiday parties, cookies and […]

While out grocery shopping the other day, I found they had blackberries on sale for 70¢ each! So of course I bought 7 cartons. I figured I would probably eat at least case while baking with the others. Not sure what I was going to make with them, but I knew whatever I made would be scrumptious. In trying to decide what flavor of cake to make I decided on a white chocolate cupcake. My first instinct was a dark […]

BananaCream4

The Holidays are here…where does the time go! I figured since it being Thanksgiving time, that I should attempt a ‘pie-like’ cupcake. I toyed with apple pie, coconut cream pie, pecan pie, but finally decided on a banana cream pie cupcake and just so happened to have some very ripe bananas on hand, which are the staple for this cupcake. I was worried it might turn out too much like banana bread, but was glad the final cake was spongy […]

I had to share this ‘too cute’ diagram my co-worker sent to me. I’m not sure where he found it, but I love it! So to whomever created it, ‘Thank You’ for your time and effort in designing this fun piece of art! It’s ‘Fabulously Sweet’!

Wow, is all I can say. The goodness of a PB&J sandwich in a small delicate-delicious cupcake, is in my opinion, a masterpiece of baking. Anyone who enjoys a unique cupcake needs to make this at least once in their lifetime. I talked up this particular recipe at work, preparing my co-workersr for a scrumptious treat on Monday morning. They were all looking forward to it, and I have to say, it didn’t disappoint! I only wish I would have doubled […]

Bacon Maple Cupcakes

I have wanted to bake something with bacon for awhile now, so I finally broke down and decided to use this savory ingredient in the form of a cupcake. Searching for example recipes was a little frustrating; there wasn’t too many out there in cyber-space and the majority I found were very similar. So in the end I found two that I liked. I combined the two recipes to create this heavenly bacon dessert and found a yummy maple cream […]
