Exploding Cupcakes

Exploding Cupcakes | From SugarHero.com

You know what the Fourth of July needs? More exploding food. We have lots of grilled meat. Plenty of fresh fruit. Loads of lemonade. And heaven knows we don’t need any more ridiculously tall desserts in our lives. But…exploding food? Yeah, I could do with more of that. I’m here to solve all of your not-having-enough-exploding-food-dilemmas. (File…

Chocolate Rose Cupcakes

Happy Valentine’s Day! Have I ever told you you’re my favorite? Because you are. Yes, you. (All those other people reading this think I’m pointing at them, but it’s definitely you.) In this season where we celebrate love and friendship, I’d be remiss if I didn’t take a second to thank you for reading, and…

Brain Cupcakes

This one goes out to all the zombies out there—I brought you brains, sweet braaaaaiiiiins. Although, in full disclosure, I served these to some friends who weren’t sure whether they were brains or intestines. And I have to admit, I can see the intestines comparison too—so think of these as the disgusting food blogger version…

Spiderweb Cupcakes and Chocolate Spiders

Halloween is next week, eeeeee! I wasn’t always the biggest Halloween enthusiast (although I always did like the candy…) but since becoming a parent, I’ve gotten into it in a weird way. I think it’s because I now have a small person I can force into whatever cheesy costume I can dream up. Last year…

Pear Cupcakes with Honey Buttercream

Pear Cupcakes with Honey Buttercream | SugarHero.com

Buckle up, cupcakes, there is major cuteness ahoy. What, like you’ve never made a recipe just so you could top it with an adorable miniature candy fruit? Actually, these pear cupcakes served a dual purpose: I got to indulge my love of whimsy and painfully literal cupcake decorating, and also got to address what is…

Snickers Cupcakes

I have never understood the gourmet cupcake craze. Don’t get me wrong—I understand the appeal of cupcakes themselves. Bite-sized cakes, with a 50/50 frosting ratio, adorably petite, so cute they’re practically batting Disney princess eyes at you, and socially acceptable to eat as an afternoon snack? That I get. What I don’t get is paying…

Strawberry Cupcakes With Vanilla and Strawberry Buttercream

Okay, I know I was just waxing rhapsodic about fall and fall flavors, but you can’t expect me to quit all berry desserts cold turkey, just because it’s October. Besides, these strawberry cupcakes were for a baby shower, and I’m pretty sure there’s a Cute Baby Exclusion Clause in the Big Book O’ Seasonal Produce…

Four-Ingredient Nutella Cupcakes

Just when you thought Nutella couldn’t get awesomer, someone comes along with the idea of making cupcakes out of it. But not just any cupcakes–four-ingredient cupcakes. To be honest, I think these are actually even three-ingredient cupcakes, because one of the ingredients (chopped hazelnuts) is a garnish and could easily be omitted with no hard…
