What are your best selling cupcake flavors? My customers are boring me to death by buying the same three flavors even though I have several to choose from.

Red velvet is my number one seller, hands down. I have a long list of flavors, too, but it is very rare for people to go out of the red velvet, chocolate and vanilla bean comfort zone. Beyond that, strawberry is also popular for me.

Maple bacon...that sounds AMAZING! Is that the flavor of the cake itself? Wouldn't even know how to begin making that.

Katiebelle74 Posted 28 Sep 2011 , 8:48am

Lemon with white chocolate lemon curd and cream cheese icing
double dark chocolate
snickerdoodle with cinnamon apple filling and cream cheese icing

aside from that yes red velvet, carrot, vanilla.

I'm in Ireland, but my top three flavours are:

1. Banoffee
2. Hi-hat
3. Red velvet

me_me1 Posted 28 Sep 2011 , 11:56am

1. Rose & cardamom
2. Chocolate Guinness
3. Hummingbird

Maple bacon sounds amazing! Might have to have a go at making something like that!

MrsBowtiy Posted 2 Oct 2011 , 3:29am

It's Maple Cake with Bacon Bits mixed in and then Maple Buttercream topped with more Bacon Bits and then a strip of bacon.

My top 3 sellers, are Triple Threat Chocolate, which my daughter developed, Peanut Butter Surprise, and Red Velvet. I don't understand myself, why people are so obsessed with Red Velvet, but they are. I don't sell many fruit flavors for some reason, in my area. CHOCOLATE does the best.
I do a Maple Bacon too. I use maple flavoring, fry bacon and put it in my batter, then use a maple buttercream and top it with a piece of bacon. Men are my biggest customers for these.

lynn780 Posted 3 Oct 2011 , 1:53am

Does anyone have a recipe for the maple bacon. It sounds like it might be real good.

DeshiaCakes Posted 9 Jan 2012 , 5:25am

Red velvet, key lime, chocolate......in that order

nancyg Posted 9 Jan 2012 , 5:49am

I too would love the recipe for a maple bacon cupcake....

sandra05 Posted 9 Jan 2012 , 1:57pm

pinkfluffycupcake Posted 9 Jan 2012 , 6:34pm

This is similar to the recipe I use, then top with crispy bacon (crispy bacon dipped in chocolate or white chocolate for an extra treat!):

If you want a from-scratch cake, then just do a search for "maple bacon cupcake recipe."

Oh I really would love to hear your maple bacon recipe! Is that something you mind sharing? It would be for a work function (I am not baking professionally).

thanks, Dizzy

Dizzymaiden Posted 9 Jan 2012 , 9:51pm

sorry - I did not read entire thread icon_redface.gif - I am off to get bacon!

Kathy107 Posted 16 Jan 2012 , 5:39pm

Hi Did anyone ever make that French toast cupcake recipe? If so please share your results. Thanks.

I did. I was so excited to give them a try! The cupcakes were the worst I've ever tasted. They were sooooo dry and tasted like egg nog!! First time I've ever thrown away cupcakes! The icing recipe is too heavy in my opinion. When I think of a french toast cupcake with maple flavored icing, I think of a more smooth and light icing.... this was very sweet and heavy. I will attempt this again... but much differently! I'll just stick my vanilla cake recipe and add some cinnamon... make a batch of whipped icing and flavor it with maple... I think that will be so much better... my attempt would be to direct it more as a sweet breafast treat rather than a dessert.

Not sure if any one else had other opinions... but you have mine! icon_smile.gif

Hobby baker here. I make French Toast cupcakes for my family, and they love them. My own recipe, and it's my sister's second favorite after chocolate.

leah_s Posted 26 Jan 2012 , 7:15pm

I'm pretty surprised at the RV on nearly everyone's list. Since I hate it SO much, I don't even offer it. May have to reconsider . . .

Anyway, Chocolate X 4, Chocolate Chili and Salted caramel are some popular flavors for me.

jgifford Posted 26 Jan 2012 , 7:40pm

French Vanilla with Prickly Pear Frosting
Black Magic Chocolate with Peanut Butter Frosting
Chai Spice with Cream Cheese Frosting

sillywabbitz Posted 26 Jan 2012 , 8:12pm

My most popular is guiness choc cake, irish cream filling with ganache tops. That and WASC...boring but I love the taste of WASC with choc ganache as the frosting. It's actually my all time favorite flavor.

My great grandmother's strawberry cake is also popular with a traditional strawberry buttercream frosting.

new2bake Posted 17 Oct 2012 , 5:58am
