These Raffaello cupcakes get their name from the Rafaello pralines in the frosting. The cupcakes themselves are flavored with almonds, as well as coconut. Once they have been baked and have had a chance to cool off, they are topped with a nutty frosting made from combining whipping cream and Nutella. A little coconut is sprinkled on top, as well as one of the aforementioned pralines. The results are a nutty, coconut-y, cupcake!

Halloween themed Low Fat Chocolate Mummy Cupcakes are a great choice for any Halloween cupcake needs. They are cute, decadent, and as healthy as a cupcake is ever going to get and still be called a cupcake. The simple vanilla frosting gets piped over the cupcake to give it the appearance of a wrapped mummy. Using M&Ms as eyes are a creative choice that allows you to customize the color of each cupcake. You could even make some mummies with spooky red eyes!

These butterscotch cupcakes are indeed supreme, thanks to their butterscotch filling, rum syrup and mascarpone frosting. They are a lot less difficult to make than they sound, as well. The cupcakes themselves are a mix of brown sugar, flour, baking powder and other ingredients. Once they have baked, top them with homemade rum syrup (which turns them into an adults only goodie), fill them with butterscotch sauce, top with mascarpone frosting, drizzle on some more butterscotch (and some toffee) and enjoy!
Caramel and coconut go hand in hand, much like peanut butter and chocolate. In order to make these double flavored cupcakes, you will need a tool that holds one side of the batter in place while you pour in the other. It sounds far more complicated than it really is. After these coconut on one side and caramel on the other cupcakes have baked, top them with a layer of caramel sauce, another of coconut flavored buttercream, and then some caramel drizzles. You really do get the best of both worlds!
