On a flight to New York, I had a Coke and Bishoff cookies. Since I have eaten both Coca-Cola cupcakes at West Egg Cafe in Atlanta, and I have baked cupcakes with Biscoff, then it makes sense to create a recipe to incorporate both of those flavors. I have created this recipe yet, but I would welcome any ideas from cupcake bakers.

It's Ocho de Mayo, but margarita cupcakes are great for parties any time of the year. Cupcake Queen made these cupcakes.

Prince Rogers Nelson has died. He was an artist who has inspired to be more creative and authentic. I was looking for Prince Cupcakes on Flickr and I found Purple Rain and Raspberry Beret cupcakes. BTW, I wrote a little something about Prince on my personal blog.

When I'm not eating cupcakes, I'm watching movies and reviewing them for the local paper. Here are some cupcakes that represent that crossover love from so far this year:

My current obsession is with the 2016 Presidential Campaign, so I thought I'd merge that with my constant obsession - Cupcakes! Look at the yummy, funny and sometimes crazy images I found online on the subject here. For some reason, it was harder to find cupcakes related to the Republican frontrunners than for the Liberals...not sure what that means...

I have had a sip of a White Russian cocktail once. My first boss when I was an internal auditor was having one while we were waiting on a flight in the Delta lounge. I thought it was early to drink, but he said it was afternoon in Cincinnati. For the uninitiated, a White Russian is a cocktail with vodka, coffee liqueur (usually Kahlua), and cream served with ice in an Old Fashioned glass. Although I like the ingredients, I always thought that a White Russian is too sweet for an alcoholic drink, but it's probably perfect for a cupcake recipe.
Apparently a recipe for White Russian cupcakes from 3 Bears Gluten Free Bakery has gone viral, so it makes sense that I post it on Cupcakes Take the Cake. BTW, Kahlua is not gluten-free, so this is a NOT a gluten-free cupcake recipe. Owner doesn't give out the full recipe, in the Facebook post. However, she gives enough information for a cupcake baker to create these popular cupcakes. This is great because not everyone lives in Potsdam, New York.
White Russian Cupcakes
- Start with a vanilla cupcake recipe
- Add White Russian Liquor and coffee to the batter.
- They are filled with a White Russian Mousse
- Topped with a White Russian Frosting (Probably a buttercream frosting. I would substitute vanilla extract for the chocolate liqueur)
