What better way to get into the holiday spirit than to add cupcake baking to your list of Easter traditions? Get your kids in on the fun by assigning them an easy task (if your tots are anything like mine, they'll forego wanting to hold a mixer and potentially creating an insane amount of mess in favor of decorating their bunnies with cute candy noses and ears). Whip up a big, yummy batch of these darling cupcakes the day before you plan to color your Easter eggs and -- voila -- you'll have an instant and memorable treat loved by every member of your family.

    Remember a couple years ago when we told you about the cupcake ATM that was supposed to be arriving in New York City? The first one went up in Beverly Hills with the promise of another on this coast. And so I waited. And I waited. And I waited. At last, the blessed day arrived. I woke up to the sound of angels singing yesterday morning and didn't understand why until I read the news: The Sprinkles cupcake ATM had finally opened in New York. At last! And because this was clearly very important news, I made a beeline for the ATM to give it a try myself.

    There are a few very important things that we think of when we think about weddings. We think of love, we think of dresses, we think of parties, and we definitely all think about cake. A cake, most of us would agree, is central to a wedding. The image of the newly wedded couple slicing the cake together, of feeding it to each other, those are hallmarks of a wedding.

    People will oooh and ahhhh over how a cake tastes. Women will even take pieces home and sleep with them under a pillow in the hopes of dreaming of their own future spouse. You want your cake to be memorable. You want your cake to be delicious. But in a sea of wedding cake options, everything can start to look the same. So how do you make yours stand out from the crowd?

    There are cupcakes, and then there are cupcakes that trick you in the best, most obscenely delicious possible way. You bite into them and -- wonder of wonders -- you discover they are filled with heavenly custard cream. Consider that the secret behind the success of these outrageous Banana Cream Pie Cupcakes. I'm not going to lie -- you'll have to dedicate a bit more time to making these than you would your typical cupcake.

    Snickerdoodles are heaven-sent. Cookies of any sort are delicious, to be sure. Only a philistine would disagree with this sentiment. But snickerdoodles, with their chewy, buttery sweetness and cinnamon-scented warmth, are something special. Make a plate of them and almost immediately they vanish before they are cool, leaving only their lingering aroma behind them. Can you think of anything more perfect when it comes to hand-held desserts?

    As a matter of fact, we can. Snickerdoodle ... cupcakes. That's right, the best of both worlds -- if by both worlds you mean cakes and cookies. Snickerdoodle cupcakes give you the airy buttery warmth of cake with the crackling sweetness of a Snickdoodle. I'm drooling just writing about it. Serve these suckers up, and you've got a crowd-pleaser on your hands like no other before you. But be sure you plan to double the batch if you plan on having leftovers! Don't say we didn't warn you.

    Even though they're a food most people associate with the holiday season, sweet potatoes really do fit the bill any time of the year. They're delicious straight out of the oven. Or in a casserole. Or even as the main ingredient in a hearty soup.

    But if you're looking for a fun twist on this old favorite, this Sweet Potato Cupcakes recipe from Allrecipes just might convince you that potatoes and dessert are a winning combination.

    And aren't they a nice switch from regular sugary-sweet cupcakes? (I'm so over chocolate, vanilla, and everything in between at this point.)

    Brrrrr! So far in 2014, we've had more than our fair share of frigid temperatures (at least in the Northeast). That's why it's pretty hard to resist staying indoors and warming up with a nice big mug of hot cocoa.

    But you know what's even better than a cup of chocolate goodness? This recipe for Hot Chocolate Cupcakes from Me and My Pink Mixer. OMG. Hot. Chocolate. Cupcakes! Why didn't someone think of this a long time ago? Regular old chocolate cupcakes are just so ... boring.

    But these babies? Topped with creamy frosting, marshmallows, and drizzled with fudge -- you may just give up your go-to drink in favor of baking up a batch of these irresistible treats.

    There will always, always be a really warm and cozy spot in my heart for chocolate, but sometimes, I get really defensive of vanilla. It doesn't deserve its lackluster, plain Jane reputation, you know? It can be just as luscious and decadent as any other flavor. Especially when a dessert gets it right! And what better vehicle for that than a recipe for the ultimate, perfectly fluffy and creamy (not to mention versatile!) vanilla cupcake?
