Toasty Cocoa Cupcakes

Perfect for winter or summer, these cupcakes are a play on hot chocolate with marshmallows.

Dark Chocolate cupcakes, filled with a rich chocolate ganache, and topped with a marshmallow frosting.  Hitting the tops with the kitchen torch browns the marshmallow beautifully & adds a nice toasty flavor.  Super cute in mini size!

Donut Topped Cupcakes

For a recent order, I was asked to make a cake (forgot to take a picture!) and cupcakes for a Dunkin Donuts manager of the year.  What better way to tie in the Dunkin Donuts than donut topped cupcakes, glazed with the DD pink & orange.

Vanilla bean cupcakes, frosted with vanilla bean buttercream & topped with homemade vanilla bean donuts, with a simple glaze.

Banana Split Cupcakes

I found these cupcakes over at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen & knew I had to make them.  I had a bit of trouble with the consistency of the frosting, but the flavor was absolutely delicious!

A banana cupcake with a marshmallow center, strawberry buttercream, chocolate sauce & a cherry on top.  The only thing missing is the pineapple!

Graduation Cake

It's graduation season again!  I was asked to make a cake for a graduate of my former high school, so it was extra special :)

This cake was a vanilla bean cake, filled with homemade strawberry filling, iced & decorated with vanilla buttercream.  I used alternating colors for the bottom shell border and top reverse shell border.
