Today is National S’mores Day. Yes, I know, I too am experiencing simultaneous amazement and joy at the fact that the ooey-ist and gooey-ist dessert on the planet has its very own holiday. GO CELEBRATE, PEOPLE!
But before you go, check out some of THESE spins on the classic s’more equation, created at Sunset Magazine.
Celebrate the season with some yummy cupcakes in disguise by Martha Stewart HERE
So cute! These little guys were created by Karen Tack and can be found in her dessert cookbook “Hello, Cupcake!”
I think they would be just perfect at a summertime BBQ :)
- Vanilla Frosting
- Yellow liquid food coloring
- 24 Vanilla Cupcakes, baked in white paper liners
- 3 1/2 cups small yellow, cream, or white jelly beans, such as Jelly Belly
- 4 pieces yellow fruit chews, such as Laffy Taffys or Starbursts
- 1 tablespoon black decorating sugar
- 1 tablespoon white decorating sugar
- 8 sets of corn holders (optional)
- Color the frosting pale yellow with food coloring.
- Working with 3 cupcakes at a time, frost cupcakes with yellow frosting. Arrange 5 rows of jelly beans, close together, on each cupcake. Place the 3 cupcakes side by side on a corn dish or serving platter to resemble an ear of corn. Repeat process with remaining cupcakes, frosting, and jelly beans.
- Cut the fruit chews into eight 1-inch squares. Soften the edges slightly by hand so that they look like melted butter. Place 1 square on top of each ear of corn. Sprinkle with sugars. Insert a corn holder in the end of each ear of corn, if using. Serve.

While I’m only occasionally a beer drinker, when I do drink beer I almost always choose Guinness. What can I say, it can do me no wrong. And neither, by the way, can these cupcakes. According to Jamie at My Baking Addiction, “although the batter reeks of Guinness, the finished product is a moist, light cupcake full of chocolaty goodness.” Sounds great to me!

P.S. I love the detail of the Guinness bottle cap!
When I was little,
my mom leprechauns would dye our milk green on St. Patrick’s Day and give my brother and me a bowl of Lucky Charms for breakfast. The milk always freaked me out.
These are way better! Amanda of I Am Mommy (the very same Amanda of I Am Baker, who created the now-famous Valentine’s Day Heart Cake featured HERE) made these rainbow pancakes for no special occasion, but I can’t help but want a stack this morning! Any volunteers?
