cupcakesIt's National Cupcake Day, have you had your cupcake yet today? If not, don't worry, any day is a great day for a cupcake -- the trendy hipster of the dessert world. There's a cupcake shop on nearly every corner of every town these days, but their popularity has given no signs of waning. And why would it? Cupcakes are amazing.

While those fancy ones from the cute shops are great, they're also pricey. You can just as easily ... OK, not just as easily, but pretty darn easily whip up some delicious ones of your own at home too at a fraction of the price.

So in honor of this scared day, here are five of the best cupcake recipes ever for enjoyment any time.

Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes Light and flavorful, these could almost be considered health food since they contain two fruits. Right?

Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes A little bit spicy combined with a cool cream cheese frosting, these are insanely good.

Black Bottom Cupcake This recipe combines a cupcake with cheesecake. To say they are incredible is an incredible understatement.

Pumpkin Cupcakes With Cream Cheese Filling The only thing better than a cupcake is a cupcake with filling -- especially of the cream cheese variety.

Chocolate Cupcakes With Peanut Butter Frosting This is the perfect combination of peanut butter and chocolate in cupcake form. They're sure to be a hit ... if you choose to share them.

What's your favorite kind of cupcake?
