Celebrate National Cupcake Day



Make some yummy cupcakes from our Pinterest board

Celebrate National Cupcake Day

Celebrate National Cupcake Day on December 15. Get in on the fun and make a dozen or two of the delicious cupcakes we have listed below. 


These cute little cupcakes are super easy to make. Celebrate the holidays or a winter birthday with these fun little guys. They are simple to decorate with just made with marshmallows, mini chocolate candies, and buttercream. Kids will have a blast helping decorate…and eat them!








These cupcakes are a fun way for the kids to be able to “toast” the New Year without feeling left out of the celebration. Hit your local discount store for the toppers. Add a cup of cider and some noise makers and your kids will feel as festive as you do on this special night.




The Super Bowl will be here before you know it and what a great treat for game day. A little chocolate icing goes a long way to decorate these yummy delights. These tasty brownie cupcakes are so easy to make and give everyone an extra boost while they cheer on their team.




I am in love with the pinata theme. Talk about being a big hit at a birthday party any time of the year. What kid doesn’t love a candy surprise in their already sweet treat? Made with vanilla cake batter, these cupcakes are light and springy and topped off with vanilla frosting. The sprinkle filling can be easily color-customized to suit any occasion. Just cut a hole in the top, fill with tiny treats and frost. 




Go international with your cupcakes. I love churros and what a great dessert for Taco Tuesdays. Delicious, moist vanilla cupcakes topped with rich cinnamon cream cheese frosting and sprinkled with cinnamon & sugar will be a hit with your whole family.
