National Cupcake Week: Top 10 Cupcakes

Monday 17th September 2018

National Cupcake week is here!

This doesn’t necessarily mean you need to go out and buy as many cupcakes as possible to fully immerse yourself in the occasion. Because after all, it’s quality over quantity. Although it does mean you should at least have a go at making your own cupcakes. Don’t be shy, feel free to tag us in pictures of your creations on social media so we can see how you’re doing.

In light of this occasion, we have decided to construct a list of our top 10 cupcakes that we have made or had shared with us over the years:

Top 10 Cupcakes


10 – Reindeer Cupcakes

Get into the Christmas spirit three months early with these fabulous Reindeer/snowflake cupcakes.

Better start preparing now, it will be here before you know it. Check out the recipe here


9 – Oreo Cupcakes

These delicious looking Oreo Cupcakes were shared with us by a Renshaw Baking community member, and we love that you’d have a bit of Oreo Crunch within the soft topping. Yum!

Check out the recipe here.


8 – Valentine’s Cupcakes

Valentine’s Day may seem like an eternity away but these cupcakes are sure to let your loved ones know how much they mean to you.

Check out the recipe here.

7 – Nutella Cupcakes

Definitely one of the tastiest cupcakes on our top 10, and since they’re not hard to make, they prove to be an excellent choice for beginners.

Check out the recipe here.


6 – Bouquet of Flowers

The bouquet of cupcakes is a great alternative to buying someone flowers because they express the time and thought you’ve put into this simple gift. This recipe was shared with us by a member of the Renshaw Baking community, and we love it!

Check out the recipe here.

5 – Strawberry Dream Cupcakes

Don’t be put off, these are simpler to make than you’d think! Use a glass to prop your piping bag up, add some food gel to the inside edges of the bag and pop your frosting in after. When you pipe it out you’ll get this awesome effect.

Check out the recipe here.

4 – Hamburger Cupcakes

This choice is for those who possess a sweet tooth and would sooner have a cupcake than an actual burger.

Don’t worry, you’re not the only one. Check out the recipe here.


3 – Ice Cream Cupcakes

Not your conventional cupcake as we’ve hidden it away under a crunchy cone; nonetheless, they make the top 3 because they’re unique and they look sensational.

Check out the recipe here.


2 – Unicorn Cupcakes

Who doesn’t love a unicorn cupcake? These cakes are a big hit at the moment especially for parties you may find yourself planning.

Check out the recipe here.

1 – Bumblebee Cupcakes

The big No.1! Just look at these magnificent creations; they’re so cute and taste unbelievable (if you don’t feel guilty eating the bee).

Check out the recipe here.
