Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes

Even though my mom is not the kind of woman who loves everything pink (her color is purple) there is something about planning an elegant Mothers’ Day brunch that makes me want to make pretty pink cupcakes for dessert. These strawberry lemonade cupcakes are perfect for an elegant brunch, an afternoon tea party, or really […]



Red Velvet Cupcakes

I got an email a few days ago asking about bakeries in the New York area that make good parve red velvet cupcakes. Since I tend to make most of my desserts I didn’t have any good advice, so if anyone else knows of a good place please leave a comment letting me know. The […]



S’more Cupcakes

As I mentioned in my last post, once I had made graham cracker cupcakes my mind immediately turned to smores. I had some extra batter left over from baking the bases for the ice cream cupcakes, and decided to make mini cupcakes (mostly because I had cute new mini cupcake papers I wanted to use).

One of the reasons I have not been blogging lately, besides just being extremely busy with finishing up school (I am being ordained on Thursday!), is that I have been experimenting with my own recipes.

In the year the I have owned Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World I have read it cover to cover probably a dozen times. The cupcakes look great, but somehow I wasn’t quite able to put aside my skepticism that vegan cupcakes could be as good, or even better, than parve cupcakes I could make […]

Strawberry-Rhubarb cupcakes, revisited

by Shoshana on August 24, 2008 · 1 comment

Since my shabbat dessert plans fell through (see previous post) and I needed to come up with something that could be made quickly I decided that this would be a good opportunity to revisit the strawberry-rhubarb cupcakes I had made earlier this summer. I had liked the original version, but the cupcakes did not have […]

Strawberry-Rhubarb, the essence of summer

by Shoshana on July 24, 2008 · 0 comments

Ok, so maybe that is an exaggeration, but strawberry rhubarb happens to be one of my favorite flavor combinations of all time. Actually, it is really the rhubarb that I love. As a kid I used to eat it raw, straight out of the garden at camp. So when I saw fresh, local rhubarb in the store […]
