Bourbon Chocolate Malt Cupcakes

Oh hai guys! I made more chocolate things. It seems to be all I’ve got on the brain lately. Which is totally weird for me, because I would not call myself a chocoholic by any means. If you name something “death by chocolate” you’ve pretty much guaranteed that I’m not going to try it.

But for whatever reason I’m pulling the ultra-girl card the last month or so and all I can think about is chocolate. And then all I want to do is listen to Jason Mraz and Michael BublĂ©, curl up in comfy clothes and watch endless episodes of House Hunters International with The BF. Ugh. I’m my own worst nightmare.

Maple French Toast and Bacon Cupcakes

Ugh look at the wrinkles. I’m sorry.

Yeah, I know. This is the third recipe with bacon in it in the last week. Also it’s the second consecutive picture using the same dishtowel in the background. I’m sorry. I’m a terrible blogger and neglecting my duties. But c’mon! It’s bacon in a cupcake, it’s amazeballs and my most requested cupcake from my friends. Are you really going to hold it against me?

Limetastic “Dotto” cupcakes


I may have mentioned before that my good friend Coach is paying me for cupcakes about twice a month. What I may not have mentioned is how totally awesome this gig is because I can literally choose any flavor I want and she is completely gung-ho and onboard. It’s a freakin’ dream. No nagging, no hemming and hawing, just pure, unadulterated enthusiasm.

Glimmer Cupcakes

A few weeks ago my friend Coach approached me about possibly making cupcakes based on new wall-covering designs her company was selling. I wholeheartedly agreed, because this sounded like loads of fun. And it is! I delivered her first batch a few weeks ago, and luckily had made extras with all the leftover batter that I was able to deliver a second batch two days later, due to such high demand. Can you believe it? I made something in “high demand.” Best news ever.

Tequila Sunrise Cupcakes

Images are so fuzzy because I was in such a rush before the party started, I'm so sorry!

So this Cupcake party I held was apparently quite the rager. Maybe it was the tupperware tequila shots that did folks in. Maybe. I mean, I had about half the people I invited show up – roughly 40 total, which is impressive for my small apartment. And while nothing was technically broken, my fridge wasn’t working the next morning. It’s a really great story actually, in retrospect, though last weekend I was righteously pissed about the whole thing.

Jack and Coke Cupcakes

This was the first cupcake idea I thought of when I was beginning to plan my cupcake party. Throughout college (sorry Mom!) I {adored} Jack and cokes. I think a lot of that might have something to do with my first college boyfriend being in a heavy metal band and drinking a lot of Jack, I may have wanted to impress him. I mean, I was over a foot shorter than him, studying philosophy and living a hippie lifestyle (I had dredlocks for a very brief period of time that was thankfully never documented) and I wanted to prove that I was not all sunshine, flowers, peace, love and happiness. I had a dark side dammit.
