    Anyone have any yummy cupcake/frosting recipes? I like to bake from scratch and want to play with some new versions to possibly have at our AHR. I have a decadent lemon recipe but I'm looking for some variety. Thanks :o)

        Have you ever used Allrecipes.com? They have lots of great cupcake/cake recipes(chocolate, raspberry, strawberry, and coconut-orange) and they are all rated from 1-5 stars. Here is one of the top rated cake recipes(you could just modify it to cupcakes) that looks really yummy-

        COCONUT POKE CAKE

        1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
        1 (14 ounce) can cream of coconut
        1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
        1 (16 ounce) package frozen whipped topping, thawed
        1 (8 ounce) package flaked coconut

        DIRECTIONS

        Prepare and bake white cake mix according to package directions. Remove cake from oven. While still hot, using a utility fork, poke holes all over the top of the cake.

        Mix cream of coconut and sweetened condensed milk together. Pour over the top of the still hot cake. Let cake cool completely then frost with the whipped topping and top with the flaked coconut. Keep cake refrigerated.

        Good luck!

          I have a great recipie for Buttercream icing, its vanilla, but you can add fruit puree's, or melted chocolate to it to make it whatever you want. I always use the buttercream as my base, unless someone wants a cream cheese icing. Let me know if you are interested. You need a mixer though (I use my kitchen aid), to get it the right consistency, do you have one?

                I have it at home, I am at work now, so I will PM you with it sometime this weekend, how does that sound? If that is too late (I will not be going home tonight, heading out straight from work), look on line for a Buttercream icing, they should not be hard to find.

                  here is one that I love:

                  Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Icing
                  3/4 cup butter
                  2 1/8 cups sugar
                  3 large eggs
                  2 teaspoons vanilla
                  3 cups flour
                  1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
                  1/4 teaspoon salt
                  1 1/2 cups buttermilk
                  2 teaspoons lemon juice
                  1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas
                  Frosting
                  1/2 cup butter, softened
                  1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
                  3 1/2 cups icing sugar
                  1 teaspoon vanilla
                  chopped walnuts

                  Preheat oven to 275°.
                  Grease and flour a 9 x 13 pan.
                  In a small bowl, mix mashed banana with the lemon juice; set aside.
                  In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
                  In a large bowl, cream 3/4 cup butter and 2 1/8 cups sugar until light and fluffy.
                  Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in 2 tsp vanilla.
                  Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk.
                  Stir in banana mixture.
                  Pour batter into prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for one hour or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean.
                  Remove from oven and place directly into the freezer for 45 minutes.
                  This will make the cake very moist.
                  For the frosting, cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth.
                  Beat in 1 tsp vanilla.
                  Add icing sugar and beat on low speed until combined, then on high speed until frosting is smooth.
                  Spread on cooled cake.
                  Sprinkle chopped walnuts over top of the frosting, if desired.
