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.

Sausage and Egg Cupcake
Ask anyone who knows me and my cooking and they'll tell you: I am not a sweet tooth kind of girl. When tasked with things that involve sugar and baking, I always find a way to finagle myself out of the situation and end up with a savory result. Whether you have a sweet tooth or not, I can tell you one thing: this is not your average cupcake.  Click here to see Cupcakes Galore.

Sweet Potato Cupcakes
Here's a whimsical and delicious take on the traditional cupcake. Instead of whipping up frosting to pipe onto a cake base (thus making a cupcake), a separate, baked sweet potato cream "cupcake-shaped top" is placed on top of a sweet potato base. Give it a shot!

Chocolate-Tabasco Cupcakes with Cinnamon Frosting
For a fun little prank, give these cupcakes to the spice-shy and tell them it's a chocolate cupcake. Then, sit back and watch the fireworks fly. In truth, however, these cupcakes aren't that spicy. The Tabasco adds a pleasant background heat that complements the chocolate nicely. Serve with a shot of whiskey for a good time. See all chocolate recipes. Click here to see Cupcakes Galore.
