My dear friend Krystal at Mrs. Regueiro's Plate is expecting her second child any day now. I was thrilled to partner with her and make tiramisu together a few short weeks ago. She and I have become online friends, and I wanted to throw a virtual baby shower for her since I'm unable to throw her a real one in person.
I gathered up a few of Krystal's favorite blogging friends to help celebrate the upcoming birth of her baby boy. Since she has nicknamed him "Cupcake," we decided to have a cupcake theme for this virtual baby shower. I don't know about you, but I can always use a few extra cupcake recipes in my repertoire.
On to the cupcakes!
Jen at Beantown Baker made Chocolate Nutella Cupcakes for our guest of honor. You had me at Chocolate (and Nutella, for that).
Becky at Because Chocolate Can't Get You Pregnant contributed Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes for her friend. I love the idea of flourless cupcakes - this would be great for my gluten-free friends.
Brady of Branny Boils Over baked Vanilla Cupcakes for 2. I normally don't need a dozen (or more) cupcakes in my house, so a recipe that yields a small batch sounds right up my alley.
Amy at The Nifty Foodie created Funfetti Cupcakes.Sprinkles make everything better, especially virtual baby showers!
Melissa from Delicious Meliscious made Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes. Now why didn't I think of this? I love pineapple upside down cake, so turning these into cupcakes is a fantastic idea.
I made Triple Salted Caramel Cupcakes. Salted caramel. 'Nuff said.
Brandon at Kitchen Konfidence baked Maple Cupcakes. Oh, how I adore maple syrup and maple flavored things. This cupcake might be the next variety I try to bake next.
Sarah, the author of Taste of Home Cooking, contributed Cannoli Cupcakes. I love cannoli, and I can't imagine how awesome the cupcake versions must taste!
Melissa of I Was Born to Cook created White Chocolate Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting. I adore white chocolate and know that I would love these - off to bookmark!
Jessica from Sunny Side Up brought Chocolate Covered Pretzel Cupcakes to help celebrate Krystal and Eric's big day. Can you save me some, Jessica?
Nicole at Prevention RD contributed her Watermelon Cupcakes. These are so adorable that I want a plush one!
Carrie at Carrie's Sweet Life made Vanilla Chai Cupcakes for Krystal and Eric. Chai spices always captivate me, and I am smitten by their aroma. I would love to bake these and fill up my kitchen with the smell of chai spices!
Jessica of My Baking Heart baked Sangria Cupcakes. Boozy cupcakes? Count me in!
Cara from The Boys Made Me Do It made Strawberry Mascarpone Cupcakes. What a fantastic way to use up this season's freshest berries!
Stephanie of Macaroni and Cheesecake brought Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes to celebrate the momentous occasion.
Stefany from made The Balanced Baker created Double Chocolate Strawberry Cupcakes for her friend. Chocolate and strawberries are one of my all-time favorite food pairings, so I know these cupcakes are awesome!
The Granola Chronicles baked Lemon Coconut Cupcakes. Sounds like the perfect springtime dessert and a perfect way to welcome a baby boy!
A huge congratulations to Krystal, her husband Eric, and big sister Elena for the newest arrival in their family. I can't wait to see pictures of the newest foodie in the Regueiro house!
