Question Cupcakes and icing HELP

I need:
chocolate cupcakes recipes,
carrot cake cupcake recipes,
white icing recipes,
chocolate icing recipes
&
cream cheese icing recipes (I would also love to dye the cream cheese green).

I have never made cupcakes before and I would love your advise and recipes.

Thank You!


P.S.(I am over at my friend's house now that suggested this site to me. She says that you rarely get recipes here - please prove her wrong.)

Hi and welcome.

You can check out the recipe section for cupcakes, you can also look on Epicurious.com: the World's Greatest Recipe Collection or All recipes – complete resource for recipes and cooking tips. Good luck on your cupcake adventure!!!

Who are making cupcakes for adults or kids?Next do you want to make all this from scratch or use cake mixes,mixes are faster and much cheaper to make.How many do you want to make.

There are 43 pages here you can be looking through for cupcake recipes. Thats what I was saying, not to mention the links people have already posted here for you.

Hi Canuck, on the blue bar across the top of the site there is a Search Function. Click on that, go to Advanced and type in cupcake and the particular type you want to search for. (Chocolate, carrot etc) I recommend you limit your search to just the Dessert Forum as well.

There are just so many recipes for those particular items I can't pick out just one for you. Good luck on your search.

OMG, Mish, that's such an awesome site! Thanks for sharing it. Someday when I ahve more time, I'll be trying some of those recipes and techniques!

Canuck, like Alix said, there are a lot of the recipes you're looking for in our forums. Most likely you'll find them as cakes. Any cake recipe's cooking time can be adjusted to make cupcakes.

If you find some recipes you're interested in and have questions, let us know. We're happy to help!
