Spice Cupcakes with Brown Butter Cream Cheese Frosting

(Please excuse the picture quality! My beloved camera’s memory card slot is sadly broken, so in the meantime while I decide to fix/replace it, I’m just using my phone. This pic is from our Instagram account.) Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays! Leah and I are home from school after a busy and productive semester. We are thrilled…

Funfetti Cupcakes

I hope everyone had a happy Easter yesterday! Leah and I took an unexpected blogging break- in the past couple of weeks, we have taken two college visits to locations in the 6-hour range away,¬† gone to prom, and worked a lot at the bakery we were hired at- about 18 hours between Thursday and…

Banana Black Bottom Muffins

Have you ever had a black bottom muffin/cupcake? It’s basically a chocolate cake base with a cream cheese cheesecake-like topping and it is definitely a decadent treat. These have some redeeming nutritional value since they have three bananas and we used low-fat cream cheese, but do not be fooled- even though these are acceptable for…

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

A few weeks ago, our parents went to a party and requested that we make something for them to bring. We made these cupcakes (a whole bunch of mini ones, plus a few regular ones for pictures!) and wow, were they amazing! The pumpkin cake is truly delicious, with the perfect amount of spice and…

Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

Since we are back in school, that means that we are back to regular requests for baked goods to be brought in. Since we love baking, we don’t mind it at all (although unfortunately we have not had the time to make large quantities of treats)! Anyway, we brought in these particular cupcakes for a…

Strawberry Lime Cupcakes

Leah and I arrived home from a school retreat on Friday, and our mom bought some cupcakes, a very rare occurrence in our house. They¬† were lemon with raspberry frosting and quite delicious, although we ate so much junk at the retreat that cupcakes weren’t the best choice ever! Our little brother dropped his on…

Orange Vanilla Bean Cupcakes

Neither of us have mentioned on here much, if at all, that we love to read. If I were to be completely honest, I (Celine) like reading better than cooking. That may come as a surprise since I have a cooking blog! Well, during the past couple of weeks in English we spent some time…

Baby Bluebird Cupcakes

Happy almost Easter, everyone! Sorry we haven’t shared any spring-related recipes prior to this; we’re not very good about planning ahead so we generally do any holiday baking on, or the day before, the holiday. But we do have these to share, and they are quite possibly the cutest cupcakes ever (or at least the…

Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Yep, this happened, and it was awesome. We have been looking for an opportunity to make these, but couldn’t justify the copious amounts of butter and sugar involved. Well, I (Leah) wanted to bring in food for my lunch table for the day before Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras, and that served as the ideal way to…

Almond Tea Cakes filled with Jam

Say hello to a very elegant Valentine’s Day treat that is perfect for enjoying with a hot cup of tea. These popped out to us recently in our Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes book. The question is, why on earth did we wait several years to make these? They may possible win the prize for the most…
