Here at the Test Kitchen, we’ve noticed a disturbing trend. In terms of fantastic desserts, cupcakes just aren’t getting the love they deserve. That’s downright heartbreaking, because cupcakes bring something very special to the sweet world of desserts. With their bright, beautiful colors, and fantastically fun flavors, there is a tasty cupcake for every person, on every occasion. If you haven’t joined the cupcake fan club just yet, you’re in luck; today we’re talking about some easy cupcake recipes that I’m sure will change your mind!
Easy Cupcake Recipes for Potlucks & Parties:
The first reason to join Team Cupcake is that they’re perfect for entertaining. The title of this section is slightly misleading because, the truth is, all cupcakes are perfect for a pass-around potluck or party dessert! The cupcake should be one of your staple dessert options because they’re perfect for sharing!

When you need to feed a large group of people, you can go for something classic that everyone will love, like these Strawberry Patch Cupcakes! The sweet strawberry flavor is going to be a summertime favorite. And no one can turn down a Classic Vanilla Cupcake. I mean, chocolate might be a fan-favorite, but vanilla cupcakes will always have a special place in my heart. These more traditional flavors are a safe bet when trying to please a diverse group of people, and the simple decorating scheme is perfect for a yummy dessert in no time at all. They’re called “easy” cupcake recipes for a reason!
