Foodie Friday: More Cupcakes!

For Easter, I ended up making two kinds of cupcakes with butter creams to go along with each.

For the cupcakes, I used tried and true recipes that I always use. Here’s the chocolate and the honey whiskey.

My butter cream is an adapted version of’s. Here’s my recipe (but you can follow their instructions in the honey whiskey link):

  • 2 sticks of butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup powered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 c heavy cream
  • flavoring

For the cappucino butter cream I added 2 tbs of espresso (make sure it’s not hot!!) and about a tsp of cinnamon. For the caramel I added about 1/3 c of homemade caramel, and decreased the sugar by 1/4 cup.

These were definitely a hit.. and continue to be almost a week later haha I made so many that at least 20 were left over. Store them in the fridge, and enjoy for another week!
