It has been pretty baby fabulous among my friends lately! We've had several new little ones making their debut and several more celebrating their first birthday! So fun! I don't need too much inspiration to bake cupcakes, so it didn't take me long to find some adorable baby cupcake toppers!
Who doesn't love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter? OK, maybe a few of you with allergies out there. These rich, chocolate cakes have a peanut butter cup baked right in. I liked it best with the light, creamy peanut butter frosting...but dark chocolate frosting was great with it too!
I thought the monogram idea would be good for a housewarming gift...so I took a batch to my recently relocated sister!
These cupcakes were almost as fun to make as they were to eat! They are a delicious apple spice cake, topped with gooey caramel sauce and chopped walnuts. Guaranteed to make a mess but they are completely worth it!
One of my favorite flavor combinations is chocolate and orange. I LOVE the Terry's Chocolate Oranges and have a real weakness for those chocolatey orange segments. If you've never tried one, you really need to! A Christmas stocking just isn't complete without one!
The Chocolate Orange was my inspiration for these cupcakes. I loved the subtle orange flavor that resulted and my first attempt at dark chocolate frosting was a success...and a great accompaniment!
We may not have beautiful Fall foliage in Florida...but we do have tons of oak trees and tons of acorns! So while I can't take the puppy for a walk through crunching leaves, I make the most of the crunching acorns! Which probably explains all the oak tree shoots in random flower beds in our neighborhood...
You don't see too many changing leaves in the land of palm trees this time of year...we just have to make our own! These cupcakes are a simple, yellow cake with chocolate frosting and adorable sugar fall leaves!
After realizing that I wasn't the only one that suffered from this "affliction," I decided to launch Christie's Cupcakes!
From classic yellow cake to pink lemonade, here you'll find all things cupcakes to help inspire you to celebrate all the sweet moments of life!
I'm hoping this blog will serve as a catalog for the fun recipes and decorating ideas I come across. After living in NYC with easy access to Magnolia Bakery and Soho Cupcake, I just can't live without these petit treats! I love baking for family and friends and will use any excuse possible to hang out in the kitchen trying new things!
I'm the wife of my best friend and mommy to a beautiful baby girl. We have an adorable golden retriever that makes us laugh daily. I love cooking and entertaining and enjoying the weather in the sunshine state!
