Christine's Orange Dreamsicle Cupcakes

  Posted by LoveonCloudCupcake Everyone loves the ice cream bars? Am I right? Or am I right? Creamy vanilla and fresh orange just go together like peas and carrots, peanut butter and jelly, rice and chicken…you get my drift. These were amongst my first cupcake recipes. I tried a from "scratch" orange cake and they were basically corn muffins. I was not pleased. So for Super Bowl Sunday I made these, but at the time with just an orange cake mix and nothing else. I slowly doctored it everytime I made them and this is what i came up with. I hope you enjoy and let me... read more

Mountain Dew Cupcakes

I decided what better than Mountain Dew cupcakes that she had been asking me to make for about four months now. What?Don't judge I have been busy :). She originally saw the recipe on I made some changes as the original didn't have any orange flavoring so, I definately had to correct that. Hope you enjoy these as much as we did.

Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake Pops

Posted by CakePoppett I have always been a fan of desserts and puddings and the idea of doing a cake pop version of some of my favorite desserts is too exciting to ignore! It has taken me a while to decide upon the first such recipe I was going to try. I have settled on that most classic of English desserts - Sticky Toffee Pudding - one of my personal favorites! If you haven’t had Sticky Toffee Pudding before, I urge you to try it. It is quite sweet, but SO good and perfect with a dollop of vanilla ice cream or swimming in hot english custard.
