Cupcakes for All! 20 Cupcake Recipes, Tips & Ideas

Recipe Roundup

Cupcakes are unexpectedly polarizing. Some love them to pieces. Others are ready for them to quietly go away and leave something else (say, pie) in their exalted place of popular appeal. But when professional bakers give us very good reasons why cupcakes are here to stay, we listen. A cupcake is, after all, a fairly irresistible piece of confectionery, with its tender interior and creamy dollop of icing. A cupcake is wonderful party food, and we've looked at them quite a lot, here at The Kitchn. Here's a look back at some of our favorite recipes, icing tips, and other ideas. There are maple cupcakes, gluten-free chocolate cupcakes, and angel food cupcakes. Read on, and share your own favorite cupcake recipe too!
