20 unique cupcake recipesI think cupcakes are so much more fun to make than regular old cakes.  You can make them so pretty and individually unique.  And you can get some great inspiration from the following 20 unique cupcake recipes listed below.

I found some really awesome cupcake recipes to try.  The cupcake recipes I listed here are very unique and deserve to shine in the spotlight.  I don’t know about you but I really don’t know which one to try first!

After you check out this list of unique cupcakes, let me know if any strike your fancy.  I bought Oreos yesterday and I’m thinking I’ll try the Oreo cupcakes later this week, that is unless hubby finds them stashed away!

cherry coke cupcakesChocolate Cherry Coke Cupcakes – Besides Coke added into the batter, there’s a nice Coke glaze on top and cherries in the middle.  They sound yummy!

Strawberry Lime Stuffed Cupcakes – These cupcakes offer up a delicious surprise in the middle of each one.  A whole strawberry!  What a cool idea!

caramel pecan cupcakesCaramel Pecan Cupcakes – These cupcakes have an unusual ingredient, mayonnaise!  And the caramel frosting sounds pretty good too!

pineapple cupcakesPineapple Cupcakes – A few simple ingredients and you have these delicious cupcakes.  With pineapple in the cake and frosting, these sound perfect for summer.

oreo cupcakesOreo Cupcakes – With a full Oreo cookie in the bottom of this cupcake and Oreo chunks in the batter, these cupcakes couldn’t get any better!

guiness cupcakesGuiness Cupcakes with Baileys Irish Creme Frosting – The name alone is intriguing but there’s also a ganache & whiskey filling in the middle.

orange cupcakesOrange Cupcakes – These cupcakes sound really nice with a touch of orange extract and balanced out with a nice cream cheese frosting.

grapefruit and chai cupcakesGrapefruit Cupcakes With Chai Icing – This unique combination sounds very interesting.  Topped with a nice chai and spice frosting.

snickerdoodle cupcakesSnickerdoodle Cupcakes – Love the cookies, wonder what they taste like as a cupcake.  Topped with a cinnamon frosting, these look like a tempting treat.

Where can I find some of the unusual ingredients for these cupcakes? Are they requested at your local grocery store, have to be ordered online, or found in a specialty store that I am not aware of? Thanks to all those bakers out there for the answer to this question. I would like to make some different cupcakes for my son’s 13th birthday!
