(Cup)cake by the Ocean

Let's talk about cake, baby

Sweeten up your end-of-summer gloomies with a buffet of tasty treats – cupcakes, to be more exact! Fit for a brunch, bridal shower, or a day at the beach, our cupcake roundup features unique blends – and plenty of beets, naturally!

We love to incorporate this ruby-red root veggie into both the batter and the frosting when it comes to cupcakes. Equally versatile, blending in cooked beets or swirling in beet juice adds depth of flavor and bonus nutrition to these summertime cakes!

Go big and start bold with our Ultimate Beet and Chocolate Cake. Dark and dense, this cake pairs perfectly with strong coffee and fifteen minutes of peace and quiet. A light dusting of powdered sugar provides a contrast against the beet-hued cake itself, allowing for a pretty canvas for customization!

Delicately pink and dreamily lemon-y, these Vanilla Beet Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting are ideal for poolside nosh. Brightly hued thanks to a dose of Organic Beet Juice in the frosting, nothing screams summer like a sweet treat dressed in its best pastels.


Keeping our cupcake theme but flipping the color palate, we’ve got Red Velvet Beet Cupcakes on deck (and best enjoyed on a sunny deck!). We love these because they celebrate the richness of beets, whose sweetness is intensified by dark cacao in the batter. Bring these to an end-of-summer cookout – only you will know you’re having your cake and eating your veggies, too!
