I’m feeling a bit jealous of the Cupcake War judges. Not only do I want to taste those yummy gourmet cupcakes, I’d even want to try baking a batch.
To some that may be laughable (I’m a terrible baker), but one day I’ll try!
Until then, I’ll continue drooling over these delicious cupcake creations.
Red Velvet Cupcake
I love a good red velvet cupcake. This one is from the Manna Cupcake Cafe, and is a good ‘ole traditional red velvet cake with cream cheese buttercream.
The Kitchen Whisperer takes an already mouth-watering dessert, tiramisu, and turns it into an even prettier concoction. What’s best of all? The tiramisu cupcake recipe is up for grabs on the site– all the more reason to try it.
Chocolate Raspberry Cupcake
I’m usually not a big chocaholic. Chocolate that is too rich usually makes me sneeze uncontrollably. Weird, I know. But I’d be willing to take a gamble on this dark chocolate cupcake with raspberry buttercream frosting.

Champagne Strawberry Cupcake
Then there are times when a bit of simplicity goes a long way. And what better representation of simple than a strawberry cupcake? This sophisticated version is from 20 Something Cupcakes.
Ordinarily, I’m not a fan of lemon flavor. I don’t even like it in my water. But there’s always an exception to the rule, and this lemon cupcake from A Piece O’ Cake is it.
Isn’t the sugary heart adorable?
