P.B. & J Cupcake









Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were a staple in my house growing up. None of those sandwiches, however, tasted as good as these P.B. & J Cupcakes! These are a fun cupcake that kids and adults can both enjoy. They start out with a vanilla cupcake that is filled with your choice of strawberry or raspberry jam. It is topped with a peanut butter buttercream and decorated with chopped peanuts. Who wouldn’t want one of these in their lunchbox?


Happy Spring!






Spring is here, which means Easter is just around the corner! I am taking orders for Easter Egg Cakes and for Cupcakes. The Easter Egg Cakes serve around 6 people. I recommend a pound cake or a chocolate cake as the base for these cakes.(My Pop-Pop used pound cake.) They pair nicely with the smooth chocolate ganache that coats the top.

Easter Cake

Spring is in the air which means that Easter is just around the corner! Around this time of year, I like to take out my grandfathers egg-shaped cake pans and put them to work. The result is this cute little egg cake that would be a perfect dessert for any Easter dinner. This is a chocolate cake that is covered with a chocolate ganache. Any cake flavor could be used here. These cakes are on the small side and feed 4-6 people (depending on how hungry you are!).

Cherry Cheesecake Cupcakes

I love cheesecake and have never met one that I didn’t like. The thought of putting the flavors of a cherry cheesecake into a cupcake seemed like a no-brainer to me. And boy was I right! This cupcake starts out with a graham cracker crust bottom and a vanilla cake. It is filled with a cherry filling and then topped with a cream cheese frosting. Graham cracker crumbs are sprinkled over the frosting and then a single cherry sits atop this delicious cupcake for decoration.
