Blue Moon Cupcakes

Blue Moon Cupcakes
I’ve been an a huge cupcake kick lately. I made 3 different kinds of cupcakes in just a couple weeks (mind you they were for events but still it’s a bit excessive). They are just so fun and tasty and make a big impact with not much effort.

When I saw these Blue Moon Cupcakes at one of my favorite blogs, Erica Sweet Tooth, I knew they would be perfect for our Super Bowl party last month. And they were a really big hit with everyone.

The cake was light and airy with a great hint of citrus. I couldn’t taste the beer in the cake but that was more than fine with me since I don’t like beer. I took Erica’s advice and poked holes in the cupcakes and brushed them with beer. I still didn’t taste it all that much but it made the tops moist and delicious.

The frosting was amazing to say the least. I added even more orange zest than the recipe called for because I love the fresh flavor of orange and I knew it would be so tasty with the cream cheese. I’m not one of those people that love frosting so much they eat it with a spoon but this frosting….it could have happened. I will be keeping this frosting as a favorite recipe for cream cheese frosting (with or without the zest).

These are perfect for any get together, you have to give them a try! Grab the recipe here.

  3. […] can definitely taste the beer in the batter which surprised me since the Blue Moon Cupcakes I made last month didn’t leave a boozy flavor behind after baking. Probably because Guinness […]

  5. These sound great and are definitely going onto my to-do list. My son-in-law loves beer, so I am always looking for new ideas to bake for his birthday. I put an orange cream cheese icing on carrot cake and always make too much so that I can eat it! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us.
