So then my imaginations starts running. Oh, how many awesome and fun flavors there are out there that we could do! Not just boring white cupcakes from the grocery store. So to entertain the idea I started looking at recipes. Of course, my first stop was my favorite cupcake blog http://www.iheartcuppycakes.com/ .
I found several recipes there, then I also picked up a Home & Gardens special cupcake issue that has 150 different recipes...so let the brain storming begin:
The colors of the wedding are cornflower blue and tangerine orange. A very bright, summery, on the river event. So my first thought was orange flavors.
iheartcuppycakes has a triple-citrus recipe
BHG has this orange cream recipe
hmmm...I will have to think about that one, they both sound fabulous. Also, I love red velvet, I think it is probably one of the most popular flavors, so thats on the list for sure. In looking for a good red velvet recipe, i came across this blog....go check it out.
Red velvet cupcakes from bestcupcakerecipes.blogspot
Rachele's last name is Foster, so when I came across a recipe for Banana Foster cupcakes, I had to add it to the list.
This recipe from BHG looks a bit messsy
so I think I am going to modify my favorite (and most used) recipe idea from iheartcuppycakes
I make these apple pie cupcakes all the time, they are definitely a favorite, so I think I will do the same thing, scoop out the center, then fill it with the banana foster filling, then cover the whole thing with the yummy frosting!
Hm, on that note, maybe I should just add the regular apple pie cupcakes to the list too!
Now, these look too good to pass up, On the test list for sure!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Twist Cupcakes from BHG
And I like the lemon garnish on this, I wonder if we could that with oranges and use it on the orange cream cupcakes....worth a try!
to the test kitchen!!
