Chocolate Stout Cupcakes with Stout Fudge Frosting

Deep, robust and richly rewarding. Just as Deschutes Brewery describes its Obsidian Stout you could describe these chocolate stout cupcakes in which the chocolate and espresso flavors from the stout beer pair perfectly with the decadent chocolate cake and fudge frosting.

Homemade Naturally-Dyed Sugar Sprinkles

Use your imagination to come up with fruits and veggies to dye the sugar. Spinach juice, carrot juice, and berry juices (all giving slightly different pink-purple hues) are just a few of the options.

Homemade Easter Peeps with Naturally-Dyed Sugar Sprinkles

This year we took our Homemade Easter Peeps to a new level by making our own sugar sprinkles with natural dyes. I used the same homemade marshmallow recipe and dusted the bunny cut-outs in homemade {naturally-dyed} sugar sprinkles.

Coconut Syrup

A little bit of this coconut syrup goes a long way. It is rich and sweet and will transport you to the islands in just one bite. I use the syrup for breakfast on banana macadamia nut pancakes and I also like to incorporate it into desserts.

Coconut Pecan Frosting

This rich, gooey, caramel-like frosting is arguably the best part of a German chocolate cake. The chewiness of the shredded coconut paired with the crunch of the pecans and the sweetness of the evaporated milk makes for a frosting and filling that can be eaten by the spoonful.

Chocolate Avocado Glaze

Though chocolate and avocado seem like an unlikely match, they pair up nicely in this chocolate glaze that is the perfect finishing touch to chocolate avocado cupcakes. A hybrid between a buttercream frosting and a powdered sugar glaze, the avocado replaces the butter but you wouldn’t even know that there is avocado in it.

Whipped Cream Frosting

Made with powdered sugar, this whipped cream frosting seems to be more stable than the whipped cream that I normally make but it is still light and fluffy. Though it is plenty rich, it is lighter and less sweet than buttercream frosting, making it a perfect option for angel food cake and other light summer desserts.
