¡Lo siento!
Ipagpaumanhin ninyo ako!
Xin lỗi
Je suis désolé!

(And now you know how to spell “Sorry” in English, Spanish, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Japanese and French. Don’t say I never taught ya anything! *wink*)

I know Cupcake Hero::November is long delayed and I apologize profusely. I never claim to be very tech savvy and Flickr threw me for a loop by changing up the way they link pics in the groups so it took me a few days weeks to figure out how to do it. On top of that I was in the middle of moving into my new home. Talk about stressball! Thanks to all IHC readers for your housewarming well wishes. I am happy to say we are moved in, most of the boxes have been unpacked and we can finally park one car in our 2-car garage. Hey it’s a start right? HA! I can’t wait to get back into the kitchen and bake!

Without further ado. LET’S ROCK THE VOTE! — > Poll on the side menu bar. Voting ends December 6th @ 11:59pm EST. But you won’t win on votes alone. That will be decided in my kitchen. May the best cupcakes throw down!

Good luck to all cup-testants!

PS- Don’t forget that Cupcake Hero::December is being hosted by Jamieanne of The Sweetest Kitchen. Click HERE for more details. I might even try to enter myself!

Peanut Butter Cupcakes w Bourbon Buttercream & Candied Bacon (Entry #2)
by Stephanie of Honey I’m Homely
In her own words: The title pretty much says it all. I really loved the combination of salty/sweet in this cupcake. Throw a little booze into the mix and, well, what’s not to like?

Peanut Butter Cupcakes with Apple Buttercream
by Josie of La Vie Nouveau
In her own words: I decided to go with a basic peanut butter cupcake recipe and try my hand at “inventing” an apple buttercream. The end result was delicious. The actual cupcake held its shape and didn’t crumble all over the place as you bit into it, it was definitely peanut buttery-y but not over the top, it was just enough. I also made it with whole-wheat flour and all-natural PB, YUM!

Flutternutter Cupcakes
by Michelle of One Ordinary Day
In her own words: This cupcake takes you back to childhood by recreating the fluffernutter sandwich in dessert form, and adding a little milk chocolate for good measure. Please pass the milk!

Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes
by Sandi of Put A Cupcake In It
In her own words: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups made into a ganache buttercream and sprinkled inside a moist chocolate cake and topped with a few more for good measure! This frosting is so yummy, soft and silky….It’s hard to stop eating it.

Chocolate Peanut Butter and Banana Cupcake

Caramel Apple Peanut Butter Cupcakes (Entry #1)
by Sally of Sally’s Smorsels
In her own words: This may appear to be just another delicious peanut butter cupcake, but waiting to explode your tastebuds, are apples and caramel baked right into the middle. It’s then topped with a white chocolate frosting and swirled with caramel.

Sundae Cupcakes (Entry #2)
by Sally of Sally’s Smorsels
In her own words: This cupcake is based off my most favorite way to eat peanut butter – smothered with hot fudge over vanilla bean ice cream. So I made a vanilla bean cupcake, hollowed it out a little and filled that hollow with homemade hot fudge and peanut butter. It’s topped off with whip cream frosting and drizzled with peanut butter and hot fudge.

Apple Dip Cupcakes (Entry #1)
by Paige of Starting All Over Again
In her own words: It is an apple cupcake frosted with a peanut butter concoction that is supposed to be used as an apple dip but is the perfect consistency for frosting!

Double Trouble Goodness
by Chaya of Sweet and Savory Says It All

by Jamieanne of The Sweetest Kitchen
In her own words: This rich little peanut butter cuppie is pretending to be his favorite snack – a chocolate peanut butter cup! He hopped into a chocolate peanut butter shell which was filled with creamy peanut butter and topped himself off with chocolate ganache and a little peanut. And he tastes very very good! Disclaimer: This cupcake should not be consumed without a glass of ice, cold milk.

Coconut Cupcake with Apple Pie Filling & Peanut Butter Frosting
by Samantha of Sweet Remedy
In her own words: When the Cupcake Hero ingredient was announced I kept thinking: Coconut. I don’t know where I got this crazy idea to use coconut with peanut butter, but it came to me, maybe in a dream, who knows. But I couldn’t get it out of my head. So I pretty much HAD to use it so it would stop haunting me.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cupcakes
by Margaret of Tea and Scones
In her own words: I made Martha Stewart’s One Bowl Chocolate Cup Cakes and added a swirl of Peanut butter Frosting to the mix. The PB frosting is also from MS – Creamy PB Frosting. It added a hint of PB to the cup cakes. Then used the same frosting to put on TOP of the cuppys and sprinkled with chopped Reese’s Pieces. The cup cakes are dark and dense and delicious.

Peanut butter, Coconut and Caramel Cupcake
by Sharon of Test With Skewer
In her own words: Trying to get away from the pairing of peanut butter and chocolate, I opted for caramel and coconut instead. Many Asian desserts utilize peanuts, coconut and sugar together, and I figured the flavour would translate well. Some of the cupcakes have a caramel frosting and some have a a peanut butter frosting. Decorated with peanut M&Ms (of course).

The King Cupcake
by Lindsey of TuTu Cupcakes
In her own words: Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip cupcake, topped with a Banana Cream glaze, frosted with a thick and fluffy Peanut Butter frosting. Garnish with Chocolate Chips for a hunk-a-hunk of burnin’ cupcake love.

by Allie of Zucchero Dolce
In her own words: Peanut Butter Cupcakes, Nutella Filling, Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting, Nutella Drizzle

  6. Oooo, they all look so good! Thanks for posting!

  7. CB,

    You forgot my Sundae Cupcakes! They are not on the list. But they are on flickr and I got an email from you saying you got them. I’m not sure what happened but is it too late to add them to the poll?



  8. OMG. I’m so sorry!! I edited the roundup and poll to include your second entry. Give the poll a few minutes to update. Again sorry!

  9. No worries! Thanks CB!

  10. This is killing me before breakfast! :) All so yummy looking… but my vote went to Alicia of the Red Deer and her Chocolate Peanut Butter and Banana Cupcake… so hungry now!

  11. Well done on moving house and doing the round-up! They all look fantastic :) Totally forgot to check here and get readers to vote..ooops:)

  12. Don’t forget the smores (everyone really loves them!) Just have bowls of

    marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate bars ready along with the skewers or roasting

    sticks. Depending on the age of the graduate, you may need special supervision here.
    Ice cream sundae bars are also a hit for all graduates! Set out vanilla ice cream

    with all manner of toppings plus whipped cream and school-colored sprinkles for added

    school spirit.
