Cherry Bombs

Vanilla Buttercream topped with Fresh Cherries

May was quite the busy month over here in little miss land. Between birthdays, dreadful apartment searches and a new school placement I just haven’t had much time to blog or bake for that matter.  I apologize for the absence from the blog in recent weeks and promise to post more frequently in the upcoming weeks.

Chocolate Banana Cupcakes

Chocolate Banana Cupcake

Sometimes you buy bananas thinking your going to eat them but life gets in the way and they’re left to get all spotty and brown on your counter.  Stuck with some very spotty bananas that were simply too brown to eat, it was time to either use them or throw them out.  After some debating about the possible flavor combinations to use with my bananas I decided on a simple banana chocolate combination.

These cupcakes were rich and decadent. The perfect pick me up for those days when life just needs to be a little sweeter.

Pina Colada Cupcakes

Pina Colada Cupcakes 

I’ve been recently inspired by all this terrific spring weather we have been having. So long snow, hello sunshine and springtime flavored cupcakes. I wanted to make a cupcake that was light and citrusy to ring in the new season…. So with a little help and inspiration from Jimmy Buffet I decided on Pina Colada Cupcakes.

These cupcakes are jam packed with coconut and pineapple flavors. Try them out for a fun spring time treat or for your next patio party

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies & Milk

There is absolutely no food that I love more than peanut butter. If given the choice I would eat peanut butter for breakfast, for lunch and most definitely for dinner. Not a day goes by where there isn’t at least one jar of natural chunky peanut butter in my fridge.

As such I was quite amazed to discover that I had never posted about peanut butter cookies.  I make these cookies on days when cupcakes just wont do.  They’re a soft, slightly crumbly, melt in your mouth sort of cookie. Perfect for cold windy days like today.

Chocolate Blackberry Cupcakes

Chocolate Cupcakes with Blackberry Filling
& Blackberry Buttercream Frosting

My boyfriend (being the special guy that he is) was given free range to choose whatever cupcake flavor he wanted for his birthday. Anything his little heart desired… After many ridiculous suggestions mostly involving ice cream cones, he finally decided on chocolate blackberry.

Guest Post: Gluten-Free Ding Dongs

Vegan Gluten Free Ding Dongs

Hello fellow Little Miss lovers,

I have been honoured with the task of writing a guest post for Little Miss Vegan Cupcakes. I looked through recipe after recipe trying to find one worthy of Little Miss. Oh the pressure of finding one that would uphold the Little Miss Vegan Cupcakes standard! After much contemplation, I simply decided to keep it classic and chose (drum roll please)...the Ding Dong.
