Happy National Cupcake Week

In honour of National Cupcake Week this week I baked a different batch of cupcakes everyday this week for friends, coworkers and fellow teammates.  Fortunately I didn't have to eat nearly any of them myself because I had enough events this week to spread the cupcake love around.

Monday: Red Velvet Cupcakes
These were wedding samples I made that I plan to do again in October.

Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing.

Tuesday: White Cupcakes
Made a few cupcakes for my volleyball team: The Beach Slappers - don't ask.  Hopefully these cupcakes gave the boys the sugar rush they needed.
White cupcakes with semi-sweet chocolate drizzle.

Wednesday: Dark Chocolate Mint Cupcakes
Cupcakes for my boxing mates and coach, cause I love 'em!
Dark chocolate cupcakes with blue peppermint frosting.

Thursday:  Cinnamon Coffee Cupcakes
(partly vegan)
Cupcakes for the coworkers, a nice compliment to your morning coffee - some coffee cupcakes! When I do drink coffee in the morning, I've recently made a habit of adding a bit of cinnamon to it and it's sooooo good.

Friday: White Chocolate and Maple Cupcakes
For Michael and his family - white chocolate being his favourite chocolate and since I won't be seeing him all weekend I figured I should send him off on a sweet note.

Maple and white chocolate cupcakes with whipped Maple frosting - baked with a white chocolate Lindt chocolate inside!

National Cupcake week continues into this weekend, so have fun, bake or just eat a cupcake!


  1. Wow, the Friday cupcake (as well as all other) is breathtaking!
    I like very much also the Wednesday frosting - what a soft, dreamy blue colour you've achieved! :)
    Other 'days' are also very nice ideas. :)
    Can't wait to see what's coming up :P Best wishes to you, Sarah-Lyn.

  2. Holy cow, they all sound so good, especially the cinnamon coffee ones! And that first picture...the icing looks incredible, almost like the cupcake is topped with soft serve ice cream :)

  3. they all look so delicious! I want a cupcake now :D

  4. I came across your blog and I must say that I LOVE the maple cupcakes :) You've inspired me! Keep up the great baking.

  5. Aww, thank you! :)

    Maple is a lovely flavour, good in almost anything.
