Cappuccino cupcakes from HowStuffWorks are a little bit off the beaten path, but still familiar enough to ease adventurers into sampling new flavors. Those brave enough to try truly unconventional cupcakes might enjoy baked bean and tomato cupcakes or avocado lime cupcakes, both of which were created as part of The Cupcake Project. Vacation-starved landlubbers can try tropical luau cupcakes to get a taste of the beach without actually making the trip.
