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.

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!

“One of my favorite simple Thanksgiving dishes is roasted butternut squash served with a touch of cinnamon, butter and maple syrup -- it's a lot more interesting than predictable sweet potatoes,” says cupcake maven Allison. “The following day, you can mash  up the leftovers and use them in our recipe for Butternut Spice cupcakes. Though, of course, if you're too tired to go through the whole cupcake  decorating process, you can just divide the cake batter between two loaf pans and bake for about 35-40 minutes. A nice slice of butternut loaf cake is just divine when it's lightly toasted in butter  and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar!” For more info on where to buy Robicelli’s cupcakes click here.  Their book A Love Story, With Cupcakes, is available now.
