Biscoff Cupcakes with Biscoff Buttercream

I have good news and I have bad news. Which one do you want first?

Ok, well since you can’t answer, I’ll start with the good news.

I got the job I interviewed for the other day! Yeah!

The bad news is that is just isn’t my dream job. Not even close to my dream job. Like so far removed from my dream job it kind of makes me want to cry. *Sigh*

But they’re willing to work with me on my children’s school schedule so that I won’t have to put them in after school care, and for this I am incredibly thankful! (I’m trying so hard to see the glass as half-full, so work with me here…)

To celebrate, I decided to make some cupcakes!

Actually, that’s a total lie. I just made cupcake because I really freakin’ like cupcakes.

And because I finally found some dang Biscoff Spread! The stuff has been circulating throughout the blogosphere for months now, and I felt like it was this big party that I just wasn’t invited to because I couldn’t find the dang stuff no matter how many stores I tried.

Turns out you can find it at Winn Dixie. Who knew!? By the marshmallows… cause that’s totally where I’d put it. Not.

I could seriously just eat this stuff by the spoonful, like the giant spoon you’d use to serve your mashed potatoes with. I may or may not have done this already… which may explain why my pants have been feeling a little snug lately…

If you’re still a Biscoff virgin, I highly recommend you seek this bad boy out. It’s soft and creamy like peanut butter, but sweet like your favorite cookies.

So here are some Biscoff Cupcakes topped with Biscoff Buttercream for you. Feel free to celebrate that it’s Friday or that it’s almost flip flop season here in Georgia or whatever makes you happy!

Biscoff Cupcakes with Biscoff Buttercream

Yields: 10 cupcakes

Ingredients

For the cupcakes:

6 oz. melted butter

1 c. + 2 tbs. cake flour

½ c. sugar

2 tsp. Baking powder

½ tsp. salt

¼ c. + 2 tbs. heavy cream

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 lg. eggs

3 tbs. Biscoff Spread

For the Biscoff Buttercream:

4 tbs. butter

2 c. confectioners’ sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1-2 tbs. milk

1 ½ tbs. Biscoff Spread

3-4 crushed Biscoff cookies (optional)

Directions

For the cupcakes:

Melt the butter and set aside until it starts to solidify again. You want it still pourable but not still totally melted.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 10 cups of a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine cake flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. With the mixer on low, gradually add the butter and heavy cream.

Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time. Mix only until combined to make sure that the cupcakes stay light and fluffy. Gently stir in the Biscoff spread till it’s evenly incorporated.

Fill prepared muffin cups two-thirds full of batter. Bake 17-20 minutes until light and fluffy or a cake tester comes out clean.

Cool in pan 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.

For buttercream frosting:

Cream together the butter and confectioners’ sugar. Add vanilla and then the milk 1 tablespoon at a time until smooth and creamy, should be around 1 ½ tablespoons. Blend in the Biscoff Spread.

Once cupcakes are cooled, spread cupcakes with frosting or frost using a #12 piping tip. Sprinkle with crushed cookies and serve.

Thanks for all your support and well wishes the other day! Hope you guys all have a fabulous weekend!

    I am so glad you got the job. Dream job or not, the fact that you have a flexible schedule makes it worth it right now! Good luck!

      Thanks Kristen – I totally agree. It is a welcome relief, and I really needed it. So I’m grateful and am trying hard to focus on the positive!

  3. 4

    Congrats!!!! I hear you on the non-dream job part, that’s mine too. But I love that they’ll work with your schedule for the kiddies! That’s amazing! And these cupcakes are perfect celebratory treats! They look amazingly fab! :)

    These would go wonderfully with my coffee right now. They look wonderful!!

    CONGRATS on getting the job! I think it’s great! And just because it doesn’t seem like your dream job now doesn’t mean that it a) won’t become your dream job as you are there longer or b) won’t open up doors to your dream job. Life is funny that way! So just relish in the achievement (especially when so many folks are unemployed) and… of course, eat cupcakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D Happy Friday chica and again I am happy for you!!!

      Thanks Tiffany! I am grateful to have a job, and I do hope that it will open doors or serve as a stepping stone to what I want.

    OK, I give up, I have never heard of Biscoff until the blog frenzie. Please tell me what the flavor is?

      It is soft and spreadable like a creamy peanut butter but it tastes like a Biscoff cookie – it’s like a cinnamon cookie that’s sort of like a cross between a graham cracker and a vanilla wafer. Kind of hard to describe… you can use it anywhere you could use peanut butter in a recipe, but it’s sweeter than peanut butter so you have to adjust the sugar some. It’s also pretty intense so a little goes a long way. I love it!!

    Congratulations on getting the job! Cupcakes are the perfect way to celebrate, or even be used as an excuse to make cupcakes :)

    I’ve noticed a lot of recipes using biscoff spread but I’m a bit late to the party as well. I haven’t come across any yet but when I do, this will be the first thing I make :)

  8. 13

    That is great Jen! Congrats! Your cupcakes look fantastic and even if it is not your dream job it is great to celebrate with your dreamy cupcakes!!!! Enjoy your weekend sweetie and take care!!!xoxo

  9. 15

    Congrats!!!! Hope the job turns out okay. Cupcakes look a.m.a.z.i.n.g… No idea what Biscoff is or tastes like or if I can find it here in Canada, but I am off to look for it this afternoon.

  10. 17

    Congrats on the job!! Maybe it will lead to something that is closer to your dream job. And working with your kids school schedule is awesome!
    I have yet to find biscoff spread :( No Winn Dixie here, but I will keep looking! In the mean time I will just drool over your cupcakes!

  11. 19

    Congrats on your job, it is early days yet. These cupcakes look incredible and now to search for the Biscoff. I have never heard of it but it sounds sweet. Hope you have a lovely weekend.

  12. 21

    Great news about the job! You might now be doing what you want, but for now it’s something. :)
    I’m still left out of the Biscoff party, but after seeing these cupcakes, I may have to drive across some state lines to find it!

  13. 23

    Congrats on the new job!! That’s pretty exciting! What a great way to celebrate. :) Any excuse to eat cupcakes is good for me! Your frosting is absolutely beautiful – I definitely need to work on my frosting skills. These sound delicious, and you’ve convinced me to try biscoff, since I too have not been able to find it – I will search it out now. Awesome recipe!

    • 24

      Thanks Lacy! I don’t usually need much of an excuse to make cupcakes! In fact I often make them for my youngest daughter’s stuffed animal birthdays… as for Biscoff, they have it on Amazon if you can’t find it anywhere local…

  14. 25

    Congrats on the new job! Even though it’s not the dream job, you never know what might happen. In the meantime, it is so nice they are working with your schedule.

    These cupcakes are so cute! I have yet to find or try biscoff anything, but once I do, these cupcakes are top on the list. Have a great weekend!

  15. 26

    Congrats on the job. I know it’s not your dream job but I have to tell you that a few years ago I accepted a job I was very disappointed to get. But I needed it so I took it. If I had made cupcakes then it would have been to console rather than celebrate. But, you know what? I ended up LOVING that job. Who knew?! Now, about this Biscoff spread. I have not heard of it (except in these blogs) or seen it so I’m having trouble imagining what it tastes like. But given my complete lack of willpower around peanut butter and Nutella, I’m probably better off :)

    • 27

      Thanks Anita – I’m so glad that your job turned out so well for you. I am trying to keep a positive attitude and learn what I can from it.

  16. 28

    Congrats on the new job!! Even though it’s not your dream job, flexibility with your job is huge. My job is the complete & polar opposite of what I dream about doing, but I have a good amount of flexibility here, and at least for now that’s what’s keeping me here.

    Seriously swooning over the cupcakes!

  17. 30

    i have yet to try biscoff, but now i’m really tempted….these cupcakes look delicious!

  18. 32

    Congrats on getting the job – woot woot! And I’ve never had the Biscoff spread, although I’m a big fan of the cookies and order them regularly off Amazon. I shall have to try to find the spread because the thought of such cookie goodness being turned into a spread is heaven =)

    • 33

      Thanks for the congrats! Amazon carries the spread too… just double checked! If you like the cookie, you’ll love the spread even more!

  19. 34

    Congrats on the job with flexible schedule…. that’s very hard to score these days. :) Cupcakes look amazing! I love Biscoff!

  20. 36

    Bravo, glad to see you have come over to the cinnamon circle of Biscoff eaters! I think it is a super ingredient to have in baked goods..however, I am biased because I love cinnamon. There is no doubt these are delicious. Stunning presentation. Enjoy the weekend!

  21. 38

    PS Congrats on landing a job. It is great that they are working with you on your childrens schedule, I am sure that helps a lot!

  22. 39

    Congratulations on the job! :) Well done, and it’s great they will work with you. I hope you find your dream job soon!
    And oooh, there can never be too much biscoff, I would just about swallow these hole!

  23. 41

    Congratulations on the new job, Jen! You’ll land your dream gig one day, though, I know it! These are wonderful and delicious looking cupcakes to celebrate nonetheless. Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to hearing what you decide for my guest post. Thanks!

  24. 43

    These are gorgeous! Oh, yum. I love Biscoff!

  25. 44

    Congrats on the new job! These look like a perfect way to celebrate, they sound delicious! Hope you have a wonderful weekend :)!

  26. 46

    These are beautiful! That mound of frosting has me drooling. I NEED to find that Biscoff Spread!

  27. 47

    Congrats on the new job Jen. I’ll tell you what I tell hubs. Each job is just a stepping stone to the dream job. It’ll happen for you. I have every faith in you. And sometimes a job that cares about your personal situation is far more important than the dream one.

    I am a tried and true biscoff virgin. I am not even sure we have it here in Canada. I am actually not even sure what it is. But I see it everywhere so I must try it. I’ll be sure to look near the marshmallows. Makes perfect sense to me, considering our marshmallows are near crackers. Now there’s a winner combo!

  28. 49

    I’ve still yet to find Biscoff spread. I’ll admit, I was seriously searching for a while, and then scaled back. These cupcakes make me ready to go out full force again! Congrats on the job! I love your attitude about it :)

  29. 51

    I hoard the biscoff cookies whenever I fly. I have a pretty big stash. I couldn’t find the spread for months then on a trip into NYC I found some this past fall. Now I see it everywhere. No joke. These cupcakes look fantastic. I really would like one now. please? Congratulations on the job!

  30. 53

    These are just gorgeous Jen and you have me very inspired to run out and hunt down some Biscoff! Congratulations on the new job!

  31. 55

    Congrats on the job! Maybe it will lead to other things in the future. These cupcakes sound incredible and a perfect way to celebrate. I guess I’ve been under a rock. Never heard of biscoff cream, but I sure know those cookies from too many plane rides!

  32. 57

    Congratulation on the job….I used to order biscoff back in the 80s when you pretty much only got them on airplanes. I LOVED the stuff! However, since I developed my cinnamon allergy, I don’t get to indulge…dang it! These cupcakes look incredible!

  33. 59

    Congratulations on finding a job and seeing the bright side of it. In the next year or so, I’m going to have to join the job market again too. I’m terrified. I know I’ll have to do something just like you do that can accommodate my kid’s school schedule so it will not be grand in any scale. I’m glad you found something.. even if it’s not what you want to do just yet. I hope it will lead you to the job that you will just love someday soon!! Hope you’re having a great weekend. ~ Ramona

      Thanks Ramona! I’m trying hard to see it as a temporary thing and as a blessing. My kids will only be this age once and I hate to miss it by putting them in after school care!

  34. 61

    Woops… I totally forgot to comment on those gorgeous cupcakes. I love cupcakes too…. so there really does not need to be a reason to enjoy some. :0) I don’t know what biscoff is… but it sure looks yummy. :)

    • 62

      Oh Ramona – it’s like deliciousness in spread form. It’s a soft spread like peanut butter that tastes just like a Biscoff cookie. You can use it in recipes the same way you would peanut butter or almond butter, but it’s sweet so you have to adjust the sugar and a little goes a long way!

  35. 63

    Congratulations on the job, Jen. I had no idea we can find that Biscoff stuff. Great cupcakes!

  36. 65

    Congratulation!!!!
    These cupcakes look really yum…. Perfect to celebrate your new job….
    You have a wonderful space here, I am glad I fund it.

  37. 67

    Congrats on your job! That’s great that they are flexible with your schedule!

    These cupcakes look SO good! And I have to admit that I have yet to try biscoff spread! I need to change this!

  38. 69

    Congrats on the job and I think that it is great that you are making it work around your kid’s school schedule! These cupcakes look divine. Love it We don’t have Winn Dixie up here so I guess I will have to find another source!

  39. 71

    Oh my gosh….why have I never heard of Biscoff before? I want to eat a sweet creamy version of my favorite cookie off of a spoon large enough to serve mashed potatoes! Your cupcakes are beautiful, Jen. I wish we were neighbors so you could give me some piping lessons! And congrats on your new job! It may not be your dream job, you you will never know where it will lead, what connections you will make and who you will meet. Keep your chin up and keep looking at that glass as half full! : )

  40. 73

    These are stunning! And yummy!!! Congrats on the job, Jen…just consider it a stepping stone till the right one comes along~

  41. 75

    Holy moly, I can’t wait to make a batch of these. I just found Biscoff at Walmart in the peanut butter section with $1.00 coupons attached. What a delightful spread. I will be baking these on Thursday this week and relish every morsel of them. ALSO, congratulations on the job. I still haven’t found mine. Then again, I have been a mom and homemaker for 41 years! Pay is lousy, benefits, HA! But sometimes great rewards.

  42. 76

    Cupcakes are always the best way to celebrate — good luck sweetie xoxo.

  43. 77

    Congratulations on the new job! As a stay-at-home mom I worried about what I would do after kids get older too. Do I find a job then? I don’t know. Most of people around me has a career, but I never had something that I really wanted to do with my career. This is just the beginning and I’m sure you will see a new road soon. :-) Delicious cupcakes to celebrate (or just to eat)! Good luck!

  44. 78

    I hear you on having to take a job you needed but didn’t really get all that crazy about. Beautiful piping job on the cupcakes! Love these!

  45. 79

    Wow! I never heard of that spread before! I definitely have to look for it and make those cupcakes! They look amazing :)

  46. 80

    YAY on the job and the schedule :) So awsm!!
    The cup cake looks so perfect .. the frosting is so neat! I don’t enjoy frosting much but this is my husband’s fav flavor. I have to make this next time.

  47. 82

    Congrats on the job – even if it isn’t your dream job that is still so awesome! I love the looks and sound of these cupcakes too! Yum!

  48. 83

    The look divine Jen!!!! Congratulations on your job! Maybe not your dream job, but perhaps a stepping stone to it :) Thank you for continuing to visit my site :)

    Holly

  49. 84

    Congrats on the new job! It may not be the dream job, but it’s awesome they work around your schedule (that’s so hard to find!)

  50. 85

    I have just come across your blog and I am taken with it. I have loved Biscoff ever since I ate the little cookies back in the 1980 s or early 1990 s when I was flying. I had kept the little package and called the number and ordered them as they didn’t carry them in the USA stores yet! I hope you are still enjoying them!
