Milky Way Martini Cupcakes

Milky Way Martini Cupcakes

Happy Halloween! It’s the time of year where everyone has a bunch of candy laying around. Either from over preparing for trick-or-treaters, kids who went trick-or-treating, or you just plan to partake in all the post halloween candy sales that’ll be happening tomorrow. Candy abounds. These milky way martini cupcakes not only utilize that candy, but they give you a perfect way to unwind post halloween (by taking a shot of a milky way martini) These cupcakes aren’t meant for kids, since they’re pretty alcoholic. There’s a cup of alcohol…

Baking Basics Course

Baking Basics Course

Hi there everyone! About a month ago Skillshare contacted me and told me they just started a Culinary section on their site, and asked if I would be interested in making a class. If you don’t know what Skillshare is, it’s basically “a learning community for creators.” So creators (baker me) will make a short, 10-25 minute class, split up into 1-5 minute videos and work through a specific task to help you learn something. My class is 14 minutes of 30 second – 2 minute long videos, going through…

Watermelon Cupcakes

Watermelon Cupcakes

Hi everyone! Sorry for later than usual post today. But I’m keeping with the season and getting back to cupcakes! Today I bring you watermelon cupcakes. Not those vanilla cupcakes dyed to look like watermelons, but genuine watermelon flavored cupcakes made with real watermelon. They are also made with fake watermelon flavor (thanks jello! [this post is not sponsored honest]), just to help bring some more watermelon flavor into them. They’re really really delicious.

Buttered Toffee-tastic Cocktail Cupcakes with Toffee Frosting

Buttered Toffee-tastic Cocktail Cupcakes with Toffee Frosting

Today’s cookie for the Drunken Girl Scout project is toffee-tastic. It’s a butter cookie full of toffee. And fun fact – there’s a cocktail called “Buttered Toffee“, which is absolutely delicious. It’s kahlua, baileys’, and amaretto mixed with half-and-half (half milk, half cream for those of you who don’t have this in your stores). Because it’s a milk based cocktail, I pulled out my good ol’ White Russian Cupcake recipe and modified it to make delicious, moist, crumby, toffee cocktail cupcakes. My boyfriend took a bite into these and exclaimed…

Drunken Thin Mint Cupcakes

Drunken Thin Mint Cupcakes

Everyone, I’m really excited to announce this project! I bring you The Drunken Girl Scout. For the next 4 weeks, I’ll bring you a booze filled recipe featuring your favorite girl scout cookies. Now, we only have access to 8 kinds of girl scout cookies being sold – Samoas, Thin Mints, Trefoils, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Rah-Rah Raisin, Toffee-Tastic, and Savannah Smiles  – so they’ll only be recipes for those. But, I’ve enlisted the help of some other great bakers for this and I can’t wait for you all to see what they’ve created! And…

Drunken Spiced Rum Pumpkin Cupcakes

Drunken Spiced Rum Pumpkin Cupcakes

Happy almost Halloween! To celebrate I’ve made some BOOzy cupcakes! Drunken spiced rum pumpkin cupcakes But seriously, when I say these are drunken, I don’t mean there’s a bit of alcohol that bakes off and you can’t even taste it, I mean these are drunken. Deliciously, deliciously drunken. I made two batches and used up all the rum I intended to drink at the party I was heading too. But they’re delicious. You can for sure taste the spiced rum and the pumpkin and the Marshmallow frosting pairs with it…

Margarita Cupcakes

Margarita Cupcakes

Note: This post – pictures and recipes were updated on  May 5, 2016 Hello everyone! It’s Cinco De Mayo so I made some cupcakes for the office! I’ve been wanting to make these Margarita cupcakes for a while so I was really excited to finally do it. Let me tell you, they are delicious. The recipe is adapted from Brown Eyed Baker, but I punched up the alcohol content a bit – because honestly, who doesn’t want more alcohol packed into a mini cupcake. And you can up the alcohol…

Banana-Cinnamon Cupcakes with Fireball Whisky

Banana-Cinnamon Cupcakes with Fireball Whisky

  What do you do when you have a bunch of ripe bananas and a bottle of fireball whisky hanging around? Make some cinnamon banana cupcakes of course! And dump a bunch of fireball in there because why not!   One of the things I always worry about when making banana cupcakes is that they’re going to turn into banana muffins. And these certainly do not. It’s a spongy banana cake. Perfectly light and not overly sugary, but exceptionally banana-y. Moreso, next day. Baked goods with pureed fruits/veggies always have…

White Chocolate Candy Cane Cupcakes

White Chocolate Candy Cane Cupcakes

Happy belated holidays everyone! This is a late post because I was home to Michigan for the week and came back with that horrible flu that’s going around. So that knocked me out all last week. So let’s recap. Michigan was beautiful. We got a terrible ice store that knocked out power for half the state, but it was gorgeous in its destruction   This is a real ice store. The one we had here in Memphis a few weeks back was a joke comparatively. Also, despite all the cold…
