Bears and Cupcakes
These cute fondant bears are both snuggly and delicious.
Beer Mug Cupcakes
Whether made for St. Patrick’s Day or just a day dedicated to beer and festivities, these frothy beer mug cupcakes look like fun to pick up and eat.
Caramel Macchiato Cupcakes
For those who cannot live without their Starbucks fix, try making these coffee-based cupcakes that are topped with a vanilla-Kahlua-infused whipped cream and drizzled with caramel sauce.
Cherry Coke Float Cupcakes
Topped with a chocolate shell and baked with a cherry in the center, these throwback cupcakes are a fun treat at a kid’s or adult’s birthday party.
Though these confections were meant to prove a point about what actually counts as eating a vegetable, the maker of these treats found that after they were rolled in crushed kale, the honey cupcakes were actually pretty good.
For the equestrians out there, this is the absolute perfect cupcake. If the birthday girl or guy happens to have a sense of humor, the rear end ones are a personal favorite (the heads are also an option).
Bacon Cupcakes: Sunny Side Up
Who says breakfast can’t be eaten for every meal? Or at least dessert. These cupcakes are filled with crispy bacon bits and topped with what looks like a sunny-side-up egg.
Lucky Charms Cupcakes
Perhaps taking a love of breakfast cereal a little too far, this baker created a Lucky Charms cupcake after picking out the marshmallows from the box. (Though they do sound quite tempting.)
"Two Peas in a Pod" Lemon Cupcakes
Too cute. Make these for a best friend, sister, partner, whoever — they are just absolutely too cute.
The fact that these are insanely adorable is only topped by the fact that they are also chocolate peanut butter penguins made out of Nutter Butters.
Root Beer Floats
It might just be the little straws (easy to make by snipping off the ends), but these root-beer flavored cupcakes are reminiscent of happy childhood memories. The buttercream frosting probably doesn’t hurt either.
Rice Krispie Treat Cupcakes
Adding a little Snap, Crackle, and Pop to a cupcake is never a bad idea, especially when it involves topping it with colorful sprinkles like this recipe. With a crunchy, sweet exterior and a fluffy interior, it’s a fantastic dessert.
Golden Globe Buttered Popcorn Cupcakes
While first created for the Golden Globes, thesepopcorn mini treats can be served at any viewing party, whether it’s the season finale of Mad Men or Gossip Girl.
