Bacon Cupcakes
Let's be honest: cupcakes have a pretty prissy reputation. From their pop culture debut during the '90s via Magnolia Bakery's appearance in Sex and the City to the current endless, maddening debates about where the best cupcake can be found and what "the next cupcake" is, mention cupcakes in front of anyone older than 6 years old and you're likely to be greeted with an eye roll and a heavy dose of sarcasm. That's all fine, and I'd even argue that the eye-rolling is warranted. That doesn't mean that there isn't room for exploration, though, in this very played-out field. Enter the bacon cupcake. Molasses spice cake with cream cheese frosting is surprised by a wallop of porcine goodness (there is a not inconsiderable amount of rendered bacon fat lurking in that frosting) and then, gloriously, crowned with a strip of candied, perfectly crisp bacon. It's unexpected, perverse, even obscene... and it's pretty damn good. Click here to see the Bacon: It's What's for Dinner story.

Vegan Hazelnut Cupcakes
We want to say these cupcakes are totally European with all these hazelnuts, mocha mousse filling, and dark chocolate. So much so that you’ll need to eat these wearing a black turtleneck and driving a tiny but amazingly fuel-efficient car, but who are we kidding… they’re just really yummy. The filling recipe is a variation of the Chocolate Mousse Topping and it makes more than you’ll be able to stuff into twelve cupcakes. But since when did people start complaining about a little leftover chocolate mocha mousse? Use it for dessert the next day. Adapted from “Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World” by Isa Chandra Moskovitz and Terry Hope Romero.

Bacon and Beer Cupcakes
The combination of salty and sweet pairs amazingly with buttery cupcakes and the slightest hint of brew. The best part, did you know these are actually skinny cupcakes? Yup, the same diet soda and cake mix trick works with beer, too.

Homemade Cupcakes

Homemade Cupcakes Welcome! I am stella from Sri lanka. Everyone loves cupcakes. They are small but wonderfully sweet. Try this recipe. * 100 grams Cake Flour, Sifted * 1 teaspoon Baking Powder * 50 grams Butter * 4 whole Eggs (separated) * 150 grams Sugar * 1 teaspoon Vanilla * 1 container Frosting, 16 Ounce Tub, Or Your Favorite Recipe * Optional Decorations, Sprinkles, Etc Preparation Instructions Sift the flour and baking powder three times. Melt the butter in a small pan over low heat. Let cool. Separate the egg whites and yolks. Beat egg whites until they become white and frothy. Add sugar to the whites, little by little and continue beating until sugar dissolves. Next add the egg yolks to the egg white mixture and beat about 5 minutes. After that, add in the dry ingredients, melted butter, and vanilla. Mix well using a rubber spatula. Now line a cupcake tin or muffin tin with paper cups. Pour batter into cups. Fill to about 2/3 full. Don’t over fill. Bake at 180 c degrees for about 25 minutes. Cupcakes are ready when the top springs back when you touch it with your finger. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let cool before decorating. When the cupcake is cool, spread butter icing on the top of the cupcakes. Decorate with flowers. I made them using gum paste. I’ve done this in the photo above. Serve and enjoy.

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes
No one can resist the beauty of a cupcake, but sometimes you're not in the mood for that much sweetness. These cupcakes provide the perfect antidote by adding a tart zing to a plain old cupcake. A lot of "lemon meringue cupcakes" have you add lemon curd in the middle. However, I believe that curd is time-consuming and doesn't pack enough lemony punch. As a substitute, here we have added actual lemons that are already broiled a bit to caramelize them. It's rare when something is easier and tastes better! If you have a favorite plain cupcake recipe, you can always just stick to that as your base, but make sure to put in a bit of lemon juice to bring it all together. Click here to see Cupcakes Galore.

Lasagna cupcakes are one of the easiest, most versatile morsels I like to make at home, especially when hosting a large group of friends. It’s my favorite kind of dish: one that demands little time, but garners endless praise from party guests. Though this particular recipe yields a classic meat lasagna, have fun changing it up to create an edible kaleidoscope of these mini-pasta stacks. My favorite variations include pesto, fontina, and pine nuts; gruyere, béchamel, and shaved mushrooms with a drizzle of truffle oil; or crabmeat, vodka sauce, and asiago. A simple visit to a local market can provide fodder for endless inspiration.
