Apple Pie Cupcakes


Before I get into the cupcakes, I have an announcement to make. Last week, I took my oath in the Naturalization Oath Ceremony. I am a United States citizen finally! Woo hoo!!! (Doing the happy dance!)


After being in the US for 11 years, I am finally a citizen. It really has been a long journey. I have to say that I never thought I would be a US citizen. When I first got to the US, I just thought to complete school and go back to Hong Kong. But then I met Bryan, we fall in love and we got married. And here I am. I am so honor and proud to be a US citizen. Now, I can really call the US home. 🙂

When I was in the process of getting my citizenship, I wanted to make some food and write a post in here to celebrate my love of this country. What food is a good representation of America? It definitely has to be apple pie. But I think apple pie is too classic. Therefore, I present you these apple pie cupcakes! They are light and sweet with some slighty-tart apple bites. Great for any occasions. Hope you will enjoy them!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Valentine’s day is around the corner. Bryan and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s day. But this is a good excuse for me to make some delicious desserts. 🙂 Nothing says Valentine’s day more than a vivid red cupcake. Red velvet cupcake is pretty new to me. I have never seen or had this in Hong Kong before. At the beginning, I am not sure about the color of this cupcake. But soon after I tried my first red velvet, I have fallen in love with it. It is not that scary, in fact, it is just a chocolate cupcake with cream cheese frosting. This recipe is great! The cupcakes were light and flavorful, and the frosting was so creamy. They were not too sweet at all. For those of you who don’t like desserts too sweet, these cupcakes are for you. Enjoy!

Bacon OR Cupcake?

Would you prefer bacon or cupcake TOOTHPASTE?

Yup….. I am talking about toothpaste. It is interesting and weird at the same time. I am sure both of these toothpaste would not be refreshing at all! I like cupcakes, but not to this level!

Pumpkin Cupcake with Cream Cheese Icing

This Thanksgiving, I was thinking to make some kind of pumpkin dessert. But I have made the pumpkin gooey bar (Read) for the past two years. I wanted to have something new and different. Finally, I have decided on this pumpkin cupcake recipe. My father-in-law ate 3 of these cupcakes at one time, and my mother-in-law asked me to make these again for Christmas. I love these cupcakes too! They are not too sweet, but flavorful. The cream cheese icing is absolutely perfect with the cupcakes. This recipe is very simple, and it won’t take you all day!
