Banana Chocolate Cupcakes!

Is there anything better than baking on a rainy day? I am going to a pool house party with some friends tomorrow and wanted to bring something baked ... the verdict ended up being these banana chocolate cupcakes I had seen on Pinterest last week. I topped the cupcakes with a banana chip for garnish. I like these because they are not too sweet and the banana flavor really comes through. The chocolate frosting is light and fluffy and only lightly sweetened.

Pink Velvet Cheesecake Cupcakes!

I made these cute pink velvet cheesecake cupcakes for a lovely co-worker birthday last week. Unfortunately the cheesecake part came out more red then pink velvet, but I compensated by making a hot pink vanilla buttercream topped with white sugar pearls for an elegant finish. I used confetti oreos for the crust!

Red Gold Cupcakes!

I made these simply flavoured vanilla cupcakes with a red-tinted, golden sparkly vanilla buttercream for an FSU-loving coworker's birthday a few weeks ago. I am clearly enjoying the wilton 1M tip to make the rose design, it is both easy to use and lovely to look at. Recipe from Annie's Eats!
