cupcake

What do you think of when you hear lasagna cupcakes? My initial response is not good. I love cupcakes! The flav of the month is carrot cake with cream cheese frosting (I’m a traditionalist). I can honestly say that I’ve never once seen a lasagna cupcake advertized but I’m curious to try one after seeing this. I do love lasagna…

This recipe isn’t what you would expect for typical lasagna but keep an open mind. The ingredients are: spaghetti, bacon, sausage, tomato sauce, butter, eggs, parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese, and mozzarella cheese. What do you think? Anything with bacon, butter, and pasta I’m willing to try at least once! This would be a great party food.

Has it got you salivating? In look of more savory cupcakes instead of sweet? The Huffington Post has got you covered. They have gathered up 13 cupcake recipes that aren’t sweet but will tantalize your other taste buds. The mac and cheese looks heavenly. As do the chili cheese fries. Check out these and all the rest here.

Here’s the delicious recipe and video… Enjoy!


Flowers

Making cute marshmallow flower cupcake toppers is surprisingly easy. I had no idea! No professional baking background required. Every novice can master these yummy little flowers and that’s good news for me. These would be the perfect way to decorate an Easter treat.

They are a quick and easy way to take your decorations to the next level. Love! Grab your marshmallows and smush ‘em up nice and flat. You need cornstarch to keep them from sticking to your fingers, scissors for cutting, and food coloring spray. Using colored marshmallows would save you a step since they already come in pretty pastel colors.

What’s not to love about Marshmallows! I think every cupcake should be topped with these sticky gooey spun sugar concoctions. If not in the shape of a pretty flower, then in a delicious frosting recipe. Martha Stewart has the recipe to top all other recipes. Find it here.

Panda Cupcake

How cute are black and white panda bears? You have a heart of stone if they don’t make you smile even just a little. Seriously! This edible panda cupcake…adorable and delectable! He will steal the show at any party. What could be better than a scrumptious panda chocolate cupcake?!

Not only is this cuddly bear a yummy chocolate cupcake but he is filled with a rich vanilla cream. But wait, it gets better! He is topped with a brigadeiro. The head is made from a brazilian chocolate bonbon. I’d be happy just munching on that! You need to check out the complete tutorial and delicious recipes in the video below! I get the feeling these would take a long time to make, even for the experienced patissier (pastry chef) but Mr Panda would be worth it!

Ballerina Cupcake Tutorial

Adorable! I wanted to be a ballerina when I was little and this would be perfect for any little princess’s birthday. Who are we kidding, they would be perfect for my birthday and I’m a grownup! A bunch of these would take a while to make for a big party but it would be worth it. They would be a smash hit.

Glitter, sprinkles, rhinestones…perfect! I love how she even decorates the tutu. Fondant is delicious and easy to work with. The color can be changed to fit any occasion. Make the pink white and its now a brilliant bridal shower dessert! Bright pastels can make fairy dresses and there is a hue for every Disney princess. I love these cupcakes more than words and more than bacon. And that is my favorite food.
