Breakfast Club Cupcakes

As soon as I heard that the Flavor of the Month was to make something as a tribute to John Hughes, I immediately got excited. I love his films! My top three favorites include, Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, and Sixteen Candles.
I knew I wanted to make some sort of cupcake and I didn’t want to just make pink cupcakes. Then Natalie, from Bake and Destroy, reminded me about her French Toast Cupcakes. It was the perfect idea for my crazy, busy schedule.

I decided to make a basic buttermilk vanilla cupcake and throw in some cinnamon. For the frosting, I initially started with a maple buttercream, but didn’t like the taste at all. So that one went in the trash and I started again. The cupcakes were topped with cream cheese frosting and a dusting of cinnamon. Really the cupcakes weren’t much like French toast at all, but more like cinnamon cupcakes, but who cares because they were so good!


  1. Cinnamon Breakfast Club Cupcakes?!?!? I LOVE this idea! This means we can eat them for breakfast, right? ;)

    The linky is now open, so be sure to link up so everyone can see your yummy cupcakes!

  2. Definitely can do these for breakfast...I know my reliable taste testers dived right around 8:30AM...yum!

  3. Sounds good to me, french toast or otherwise. One of my favorite frostings is a cinnamon cream cheese (think Cinnabon). I'll bet yours is really great!

  4. I love these!! The cinnamon sprinkled on top make them irresistible. :-)
