Hi Sugar Lovers!
Amazing, over-the-top cupcakes have been popular for years but my Crazy Cupcakes are a real game changer! Why bake a whole cake and slice it up when you can have little handheld cupcakes, piled high with frosting, filled with unique flavors?
I am 100% on the Crazy Cupcakes train and I am taking it all the way with this master recipe for Crazy Cupcakes! Just like my Crazy Cookie Dough and Crazy Dough Recipes, this recipe for Crazy Cupcakes is one easy recipe with endless possibilities.
WHERE TO START WITH MY CRAZY CUPCAKES
My Crazy Cupcakes start with a classic sweet sponge. This recipe acts as your Master Cupcake recipe, your Best Cupcake recipe. No matter what flavor you are making you will never need another cupcake recipe again. This cake is fluffy, moist, and sweet, making it the perfect canvas for whatever flavors you and your family crave.

All of these flavors are topped off with everyone’s favorite part, loads of frosting and extra toppings.
These Crazy Cupcakes are a sight to behold, and perfect for any party or just to bring to a friend. If you want to see all the flavors of frosting you can pair with your cupcakes you have got to check out my Crazy Frosting Recipe! I’ve got a recipe for all your favorite frosting flavors from mint chip or coffee, to strawberry and of course chocolate!
Below are just a few of my flavor ideas but you can make so many more.
RED VELVET CUPCAKES
Red Velvet is a classic combining moist cake, a hint of cocoa powder, and cream — usually a cream cheese — based frosting. The result not only looks so fun but tastes like milk chocolate heaven!
LEMON & CRANBERRY CUPCAKES
Tangy lemon and sweet berries are one of my favorite combinations! This is a great one to make when berries are in season, but if they aren’t you can always use frozen berries.
CARROT CAKE CUPCAKES
Carrot cake happens to be one of my personal favorite flavors! I love the lightly spiced cake combined with the sweet grated fresh carrot. This is a great way to get in those extra veggies!
COOKIES & CREAM CUPCAKES
Do you know what’s better than a cupcake? A cupcake combined with an Oreo! That is exactly what this is and it’s divine! They are RICH, creamy and of course chocolatey!
Another classic, these Birthday Cake Cupcakes are so festive! I love to go crazy with the sprinkles here, there’s no such thing as too much!
CHOCOLATE & PEANUT BUTTER CUPCAKES
This has to be one of the Best cupcakes I’ve made. My son loves chocolate and peanut butter, so this one was a must. These are a little salty, sweet, and pack that chocolate punch. They are addicting!

HOW TO STORE CUPCAKES
After the cupcakes are decorated you can cover them in an airtight container and store them for up to 3 days. If you’d like you can freeze the baked and un-frosted cupcakes for up to 3 weeks. To thaw, allow them to sit at room temperature until soft and fully defrosted. Once defrosted you can frost and enjoy!
