Cupcake Ideas

These cupcake ideas are absolutely DELICIOUS. I don’t know how these bakers came up with these divine cupcake ideas, but they are totally going to blow your mind.

Exactly how have I lived my entire like and never thought – even once- that I should put Fritos in a cupcake? From Diary of a Mad Haus Frau comes these Fabulous Frito Caramel Cupcakes. They look so unbelievably good, I want to bake them right now. But I won’t. Because I have more food porn to look at.

These Chunky S’mores Dipped Cupcakes almost bring me to tears. How dare the Snappy Gourmet torture me this way!

LilyAnette created these Green Tea & Red Bean Cream Cupcakes. My gosh. What is wrong in my life that I don’t have Green Tea cupcakes right this minute?

Okay. I almost cannot contain myself at these Pie Cupcakes by Funambulistdamsel. C’mon. The cuteness factor is at a frightening level.

I like it when people stuff foods with other foods. I don’t know why. The moment someone figures out how to stuff a Snickers bar with a pizza and then fry it, I will literally explode. Look at these Oreo Stuffed Cupcakes from Cook Wine Dance. Don’t you want to shove one in your cupcake hole?

Aren’t they amazing???

Super Cool Homemade Cakes & Cookies

I watch all those Cake Boss Baking Bonanza Cookie Showdown shows and become convinced I can do the same thing. If I had a nickel for how often I’ve tried to decorate a cake after watching one of those shows, I would have enough money to pay someone to bake me a cake that doesn’t look like a drunk wolverine made it.

Below are FOUR awesome cakes and cookies that have such good instruction, I think I may actually be able to bake something without hurting anyone.

Please visit their websites for the how-to and pin them, share them, and send them good baking voodoo vibes.

1. These pink fuzzy slipper cookies at Hungry Happenings are as easy to make as they are to “ooooh and ahhhh” over. They are made from Nutter Butters! This lady (Beth) is talented, talented, talented. You’re going to want to bookmark her site.

2. This Purple Ombre Sprinkle Cake from Raspberri Cupcakes is BEAUTIFUL. Are you kidding? Bakers from the US will need to convert from metric measurements, but lucky you, the Joy of Baking has a conversion chart to make it easy.

3. Bake, Decorate, Celebrate had tons of cakes, but this colorful beauty caught my eye. I’m a little afraid of fondant, and I don’t know why. This one looks easy enough and there are great directions. You make the pretty party with multi-pack of fondant, Gum-Tex and a cutting wheel. Meanwhile, is there an official work for fondant phobia?

4. These rainbow cookies are super simple from Teaching with TLC, but they deliver such a visual impact. I love them.
