Magnolia Bakery Vanilla Cupcakes
These blueberry cupcakes are breakfast for dessert. Fresh blueberries are mixed into vanilla cake -- rather than muffin -- batter, which is then topped with cinnamon streusel and swirls of blueberry-cream cheese icing. This recipe appeared in episode 308 of Martha Bakes.
Banana Cupcakes with Honey-Cinnamon Frosting
For a handheld treat that takes the cake, try these cute confections -- they combine the flavor of classic banana bread with a creamy spiced frosting.
Kids can help with every step of these festive cupcakes, from mixing the batter and frosting the tops to creating the snowmen's plump marshmallow figures and affixing their candy eyes, noses, and hats. Set up an assembly line for the perfect afternoon project!
Red Velvet Cupcakes
With its distinct look, the popular red velvet cupcake is a top contender for favorite flavor. These red velvet cupcakes are easy to whip up for your next get-together. Top them off with a cream cheese frosting that's just as tasty as the red velvet cupcake itself.
For chocolate cupcakes, substitute 1/2 cup cocoa powder for 1/2 cup all-purpose flour.
Kids will gobble these up! Gummy candies, marshmallows, and toasted coconut flakes make excellent facial features and feathers for tiny Thanksgiving "turkeys."
