One of the best things about cupcakes is that it is so easy to make different types of designs and flavors.
I truly think this is one of the main reasons why cupcakes are so popular, because they allow people to go crazy with their imagination.
A recent study about the cupcake industry revealed that two of the most popular cupcake flavors are lemon and chocolate. In just about every bakery shop across the country you will most likely find some form of a chocolate or lemon cupcake.
The chocolate cupcakes come a in a wide variety of flavor options which include dark fudge and German chocolate chip. You can make fudge cupcake at home by starting with a box of chocolate cupcake batter. Once the batter has been made, melt some fudge candy pieces over a low medium heat in a sauce pan. Pour the melted fudge directly into the cupcake batter. This will provide the fudge taste and make the cupcakes very moist. Let the cupcakes bake for about twelve minutes. For the topping, take a can of milk chocolate frosting and blend it with small pieces of fudge. This particular cupcake taste good served warm or cold.
To make the German chocolate cupcake, start with a box of German chocolate flavored cake mix. Once the batter has been made, add in some chocolate chips. It usually takes about ten to twelve minutes for these cupcakes to bake. For the topping, take a can of German chocolate frosting and sprinkle in some chocolate chips and coconut. If you really want to make these cupcakes taste over the top, drizzle on some melted dark chocolate and caramel.
There are also numerous ways you can make lemon cupcakes. One of the most popular versions involves using a box of lemon cake mix, diced almonds, and some cheesecake flavored cream cheese.
Once the batter has been made, add in the sliced almonds. Let the cupcakes bake for about ten minutes. Once they are finished baking let them cool for a few seconds, then make a hole in top of the cupcake and spoon in the cheesecake flavored cream cheese. For a topping, use a can of lemon frosting and blend it with a few almonds. When you bite into the cupcake you will taste the crunchiness of almonds and the sweet flavor of the cream cheese.
Another very popular cupcake flavor combination is red velvet and white chocolate. You start this recipe with a basic red velvet cake mix and some white chocolate chips. Once the batter has been made and poured into the cupcake pan, place them in the oven for about fifteen minutes. While the cupcakes are baking heat a half cup of white chocolate chips over low heat in a sauce pan. When the cupcakes have finished baking, drizzle the melted white chocolate over each one. Afterward, let the cupcakes cool for about five minutes. Next, take a can of cream cheese frosting and blend it with a handful of white chocolate chips. Frost each cupcake and then place them in the refrigerator for thirty minutes.
