Red velvet cake truffles for Valentine's Day. These are so simple to make! All you need is a cooled cake crumbled up, your favorite icing, and some melting chocolate.

Buffalo Chicken Super Bowl Cupcakes?

Buffalo Chicken Super Bowl Cupcakes? | Icing on Top | Scoop.it

I'm all for trying out crazy flavors of cake (I'm still dying to make a white chocolate wasabi recipe), but buffalo chicken might be too far. According to the Cupcake Project, these are more of an appetizer than a dessert, but it's still a cupcake.

 

The cupcake itself is supposedly the same sweetness level as cornbread. The icing on top is a bleu cheese buttercream... Might be an interesting combination.

Glorious Treats: Snowflake Cupcakes

Glorious Treats: Snowflake Cupcakes | Icing on Top | Scoop.it

I hate snow when it slows down traffic, covers my driveway, and makes me cold. But it's hard to hate these adorable little flakes.

 

I love the possibilities you have with royal icing. These snowflakes are the perfect touch to a winter cupcake!

I haven't scooped anything for a while. The end of the semester and the holidays can get a little hectic. 

 

Rather than sharing some snowflake and heart-themed treats, I'll rewind and share some of my favorites from Christmas and the New Year.

Cup-tini Cupcakes

Cup-tini Cupcakes | Icing on Top | Scoop.it

Here's a scoop in honor of my birthday coming up in two weeks. Since this will be the big 21st, cup-tinis only seem appropriate.

 

I've seen cupcakes in mugs or jars, but never in a martini glass. What a cute idea! These are mini limoncello cup-tini chocolate cupcakes infused with rose water topped with limoncello swiss meringue buttercream.

 

If anyone wants to suprise me with one of these (or just a real martini) on November 23, I will gladly accept it.

Does This Count as a Serving of Vegetables? | Icing on Top | Scoop.it

Second-most unique cupcake recipe I've seen yet: squash and chocolate swirled cupcakes with orange cream cheese frosting and candied pecans. (The most unique would probably have to be a recipe for white chocolate and wasabi cupcakes I've been dying to try out!)

Double layer, triple chocolate cake with buttercream icing that I made for my parents' graduation. I couldn't be more proud of my dad for completing his eMBA and my stepmom for going back to school to complete a degree in Communications.

Since lemon is @nlrice2's favorite flavor, I decided to make lemon cupcakes with a strawberry meringue icing. I found the recipe over at lemondropsfoodie.blogspot.com. While the cake was delicious, my meringue icing didn't turn out too well. After hours of work (this was a pretty involved recipe), I decided to scrap the meringue and opted to use my vanilla buttercream recipe, but added some strawberries for color and flavor. The strawberries made the buttercream a thinner consistency than I would have preferred, but it was much better than the meringue consistency!

While some people dread the idea of an office party, I love them! They're the perfect chance to try out a new recipe, share a family favorite, or showcase your culinary talents. Not to mention there are mass amounts of food everywhere for the rest of the week... Here's a mini cupcake I made for the office Christmas pot luck. 

 

Hot Cocoa Cupcakes. I came across the recipe while on Pinterest a few weeks before and needed a good reason to try them out. What a good decision that was because they were delcious. (Okay, I'll stop bragging.) It was definitely a good idea to make minis though. There were so many wonderful desserts and the smaller they are, the more you can try! Also, the less I had to carry to work that morning.

Because its Basketball Season in the Bluegrass

Because its Basketball Season in the Bluegrass | Icing on Top | Scoop.it

I can't resist anything that's blue... especially a cake made for the University of Kentucky. Although these are ideas for tailgaiting and football season is coming to an end, I don't see why these can't be to celebrate basketball as well. (There's definitely more to celebrate under Calipari than Joker.)

 

Here's to another season of Big Blue basketball. I'm sure I'll be posting pictures of my own similar cake sometime in the near future.

Thanks for the mention. Those cakes look great, and would be great for my birthday just 6 days after the National Championship game and hopefully #8.

Best of Both Worlds: Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Best of Both Worlds: Cookie Dough Cupcakes | Icing on Top | Scoop.it

Beware, there are many many steps to making these cupcakes. Miki highly suggests breaking it up and making them over a couple days, or be prepared for a full day of making these cupcakes. On monday night, she made the cupcakes, filling, and mini chocolate chip cookies. On tuesday night, she made the frosting and assembled the cupcakes. "It definitely wasn’t too bad, but i’m glad i spread out the process over two nights."
