Roopa After what felt like ages, I’ve had the opportunity to bake something! I had finals through April, and a practicum (and subsequent lack of kitchen) through May, and then some travelling around at the start of June. For my first foray back into baking, I wanted to try something new! I found this recipe for … More Purple Velvet Cupcakes
Roopa I always thought that the correct spelling was ‘St. Patty’s Day’ because it was from St. Patrick. I recently found out that the correct spelling is actually St. Paddy’s because it’s actually from Padraig, the Gaelic spelling. Fun fact of the day! Having just come back from Ireland, I felt compelled to make some celebratory cupcakes. … More St. Paddy’s Day Cupcakes
Roopa I got a baking blowtorch for my birthday (!!!!) and finally got an opportunity to use it! I made s’mores cupcakes, because what is better to torch than marshmallow?! I made a graham cracker based cupcakes (adapted from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World), and covered them in marshmallow creme and a piece of … More S’mores Cupcakes
Roopa I found a new recipe for red velvet cupcakes, so I thought I’d give it a try. I haven’t actually seen many eggless recipes, and none of the ones I’ve tried have been as good as the normal version. The ones I tried were adapted from ‘Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World’ with some … More Red Velvet Cupcakes
NUTELLA CUPCAKES Roopa I made a batch of these cupcakes with some leftover icing from this cake. ❤ Nutella.

It’s pretty much my favourite so I figured I really couldn’t go wrong. I used a vanilla base with a peanut butter white chocolate icing, and filled … More PB&J Cupcakes
CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES WITH WHIPPED CREAM TOPPING. Roopa I made a batch of these and covered them in whipped cream and raspberries. Simple, but delicious. I always add vanilla and a little bit of granulated sugar to my whipped cream, which I think makes a big difference.
Roopa I still had some leftover ingredients from the butterbeer cupcakes, so I decided to try yet another version. I used more cream soda in the cupcakes, and some clarified butter as well for a more potent buttery taste. I was lazy to make icing so I just topped them with some whipped cream (that … More Butterbeer Cupcakes: Version 3
BUTTERBEER CUPCAKES: VERSION 2 Roopa I still had some leftover butterscotch ganache and icing from yesterday, so I figured I’d try a slight variation on the cupcake. I used the exact same cupcake recipe from my first attempt at butterbeer cupcakes, but I replaced ¼ cup of milk with ¼ cup of cream soda. They … More Butterbeer Cupcakes
Roopa To understate it, I am a little bit of a Harry Potter fan. I have read the books countless times, and always get sad about two things: I don’t go to Hogwarts, and I don’t have butterbeer. Apparently they actually sell butterbeer these days, but Canada is kind of far from Harry Potter World. … More Butterbeer Cupcakes: Version 1
