Cupcakes r yum had the very difficult choice of deciding the winner for the most creative cupcake of the week. After much debate we have decided to award this to Mrs Costillo for her BBQ Cupcake.

The Winner of the Creative Cupcake of the Week

The winning cupcakes are cute and innovative cupcakes.

The idea that Mrs Costillo suggested when she delivered them to the store for judging was to use them for a themed party, clearly a BBQ party/park party. This would be a cute idea for a boys or big boy’s party.

Check out this cute lunch box picture where each guest receives their own small lunch box, complete with BBQ cupcake.

Lunch Box Cupcakes


I did some further research into the great idea and have found some other similar themed cupcakes which are very cute and all vegetarian of course. Originally it is believed that BBQ cupcakes started out as  “farmhouse barbecue muffins” and these gradually become know BBQ Cupcakes.

Here is an interesting concept for a BBQ flavoured cupcake…yes I know sounds strange but it tastes delish. The All American BBQ cupcake.  Basically this is a chocolate cupcake with the additional  ingredient – liquid smoke. The liquid smoke gives the chocolate a fantastic smoky smell and taste. The frosting is a sweet corn cream cheese frosting.

The Smoky Chocolate Cupcake Recipe (makes 16 Cupcakes)

I added liquid smoke to our  favorite chocolate cupcake to make this recipe.

Liquid Smoke


  • 1 1/4 C sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 C (1 stick) butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 C flour
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t baking soda
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/2 C unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 C milk
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 2 t hickory flavored liquid smoke


  1. Beat butter until softened
  2. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until well combined
  4. Measure the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder into a small-sized bowl and whisk to combine
  5. Measure out the milk and vanilla and stir to combine
  6. Add about a third of the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar and beat to combine
  7. Add about half of the milk/vanilla and beat to combine
  8. Continue adding, alternating between dry and wet and finishing with the dry
  9. Add liquid smoke
  10. Scoop batter into cupcake cups about 1/2 full. These cupcake will not dome. If you fill them too high, they will just collapse
  11. Bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean

The Sweet Corn Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe


  • 1 15 oz can corn
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 C (1/2 stick) butter, room temperature
  • 3 C sifted powdered sugar


  1. Cream the butter and cream cheese
  2. Drain any liquid out of the corn and food process it until it becomes a big corn mush
  3. Add the corn to the butter and cream cheese and mix well
  4. Mix in the powdered sugar

Easter Cupcake Couture


Cupcakes r yum will feature a variety of Easter cupcakes.

Such as the one below.









  • A cupcake (baked from your favourite recipe)
  • White icing
  • Shredded coconut
  • Pink decorators’ sugar
  • Jelly bean nose
  • Chewable Sweet Tart eyes
  • Large marshmallow
  • Mini marshmallows


  1. Frost a cupcake (baked from your favourite recipe) with white icing and sprinkle on shredded coconut fur.
  2. Cut a large marshmallow in half. Squeeze each half slightly to give it an oval shape, then decorate the sticky side of each one with pink decorators’ sugar and set them in place for ears.
  3. Add a jelly bean nose and either jelly bean or snipped Sweet Tart eyes, and mini marshmallows for cheeks. For a finishing touch, draw on decorators’ gel pupils or whiskers if you like.

Too Cute!

Not only does Cupcakes r yum raise money for the worthwhile charity ‘End Poverty.’ We also like to support issues closer to home. 

In consideration of the flooding in Queensland, we would like to recognise the animals that were affected by this natural disaster. Countless animals (domestic, wild and farm) fled their homes and were either caught in flood waters, have become lost or have been injured because of this natural disaster. The RSPCA has, as always gone above and beyond the call of duty to rescue distressed and injured animals.

While the animal welfare organisation was helping animals, including horses, around flood-affected parts of the state, it faced a crisis of its own, with the Fairfield shelter in the flood firing line.

The RSPCA is exempt from disaster relief funds offered to other charities that assist human needs, this makes the RSPCA entirely reliant on the generosity of the Australian (and international) community to help the RSPCA get back onto their feet,  and continue to help the 42,000 animals who rely on the RSPCA each year.

The charity has appealed for donations to its Flood Recovery Appeal to help rebuild, refurnish and recover from the flood that wiped out several buildings, equipment and supplies at the shelter.

……..So Cupcakes r yum is donating all proceeds from the RSPCA Cupcake Day to the RSPCA. Check out our Facebook  page to find out how you can play a part in this worthwhile charity.
