Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

Pin It

Grocery shopping, or cupcake concocting?

You can guess how it turned out, but that was the dilemma I toiled over last night as I made my way home from work. Sensibility was gaining the lead as I considered all of the preparation I need to do for Christmas Eve dinner, which I'll be hosting at my house. I very sensibly considered all of the things I could accomplish early by getting my grocery shopping done that very night. Frivolity, however, edged out a narrow win - I think the bumper to bumper traffic and kamikaze-esque drivers wore me down. By the time I got home, I was in full denial mode. Christmas Eve, looming only three days away? No big deal. I have LOTS of time, right??

Red Hot ~Holiday~ Cupcakes

Red-Hot-Polka-Dots and Full of Holiday Cheer!!!
  I fell in love this year...with a cupcake.  It was the Red Hot Cinnamon cupcake for February at Icing on the Cupcake.  I'm a huge fan of Hot Tamales, too.  HUGE fan.  And, if I could find a hot cinnamon flavor Australian liquorice, I'd be in heaven almost every-single-day.  So, I've had this recipe from Erica at Sweet Tooth in the BIWB vault for quite some time.  And, since RED is my favorite color, my posts this month all seem to involve RED baked goods, and RED is one of the primary colors of Christmas, I decided to make these for you.

Pomegranate Cosmo Cupcakes

Little pomegranate-bejeweled,
tangy and sweet treats...Smooth.
  If the truth be known, this is my signature cocktail.  No joke, I've made over a hundred of these for friends at Casa de Haertle.  I seriously honed my cocktail shakin' skills on this cocktail combination.  I won't go back to cranberry...Pomegranates are the only way to go, with this cupcake or the cocktail.  And, getting an extra dose of antioxidants in your diet isn't a bad thing either!

Raspberry Amaretto Mini Cheesecakes

Luscious, gorgeous and oh, so good!
These were so fun to make and so easy, really.  Trust me, I don't do complicated on a whim.  I made these, literally, on a whim one Sunday afternoon.  I had all the ingredients, some time on my hands, and VIOLA'!  These Raspberry Amaretto Mini Cheesecakes are adapted (mildly) from The Boozy Baker by Lucy Baker.  So far everything I've made and sampled from Lucy's cookbook has been just great.  Easy recipes and great results. 

I'm sharing this recipe over at Cake of the Week for this month's Baking with Spirit Challenge, Raspberry Liqueur!  Check out Janine's latest creation: Honey Cupcakes with Raspberry Liqueur Icing...You'll love these!!
