10 Must Try Cupcake Recipes

Sometimes you wanna try a new recipe, or even something REALLY decadent, but a full size cake just seems like too many stairs. That's where the Cupcake shines. Individual servings, decorated in a flash, and customisable for different tastes. Gotta love that. 

Here's some of my favourite Cupcake recipes from Pinterest (the land of awesome recipes!), that I think are MUST TRY recipes!

Blackberry Coconut 

From Baking a Moment, these beautiful cupcakes are worth making just so you can look at them! Pretty sure they taste delicious too, but SO pretty!



What better way to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter, than with Butterbeer Cupcakes! Have a crack at these babies from Sugar and Soul, before "He Who Should Not Be Named" gets them!

Looking for something with a little kick for the grown ups? These Caramel Baileys cupcakes from Baking Smarter are sure to hit the spot! Remember, don't cupcake and drive.

Not gonna lie, I'm more than excessively excited to try these, if for no other reason, than setting fire to food is cool. Creme perfection from Cooking Classy.

How awesome would these be for Christmas?! Sure you could eat them year round, I'm not judging! Yuletide yumminess from Baker by Nature.


Lemon Lavender

How darling are these! And you KNOW you want to know what Lavender tastes like! Fresh Summer loveliness from Lindsay Conchar at The Cake Blog.



You either love Oreo's, or you hate them, and if you love them, your heart probably just stopped. Black and creamy white awesomeness from The Melrose Family.


Pina Colada

Do you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain? (you KNEW I would go there..) then these tangy cupcakes from Love, Life and Sugar are perfect for you!



Nothing says Summer like Watermelon. Get all the deliciousness of Watermelon, with seeds you WON'T wanna spit out! Summer fun from The First Year.



I saved my favourite for last. Possibly the greatest cookie ever, IN A CUPCAKE. I'll take 3 dozen thanks! Sugar coma splendifery from Real House Mom's.
