10 Great Cupcake and Frosting Combinations


6
Banana Cupcake with Chocolate Frosting

This delicious cupcake and frosting combination is reminiscent of a chocolate-dipped frozen banana, or a fireside banana boat. And few things go better with bananas than chocolate. What's more, you can get creative with this recipe by adding chocolate chips to the cupcake itself, or sprinkling crushed walnuts on top to give that nutty banana bread flavor.

Not a fan of chocolate? Change it up in a way that Elvis Presley would approve of by topping it with peanut butter, instead. (Elvis was known to enjoy peanut butter and banana sandwiches.) Other great toppings for a banana cupcake include butterscotch, caramel and vanilla.
