Upcoming Cupcakes

OK. I feel like I've been making a bunch of promises on upcoming cupcakes but barely following through. I would like to remedy this situation. I need to be more accountable and doggone I'm going to do what I do best: make a list! MY FAVORITE!! Here we go:

To the best of my knowledge, here are my most recent promised cupcakes followed by their current statuses:

Status: COMPLETE! Just need to take photos. Stay posted!
Update: Here they are!!

Status: Still looking for a good recipe Update: COMPLETE!
--I tried (and subsequently scratched) one recipe. Not gingerbread-y enough. My Executive Cupcake Analyst, a gingerbread purist and self-proclaimed expert on all things gingerbread, found that the molasses taste was barely noticeable (a mere aftertaste, he said) and he wanted something more pronounced.

Status: Not satisfied
--I liked the spice cake recipe that I used for this one but the filling came out less like apple pie and more like applesauce. I don't know how I feel about that.

Status: Back burner
--I could sit here and pretend that this has nothing to do with the fact that my interest in anything coffee is approximately 0% but, well, what's the use in pretending? Neither my husband nor I like coffee and therefore this one totally fell into the "save for another day" bin.

Status: Untried but found a recipe! Update: COMPLETE!
--I found this recipe on How to Eat a Cupcake's site and it looks really promising. I can't wait to make these! My Cupcake Testing Specialist has hinted on more than one occasion that these need to be made. Of course, I've hinted on more than one occasion that she needs to keep supporting my pecan pie addiction but I have as yet to see another one of her glorious deep-dish pecan pies on my doorstep when I get home from work...

These are some cupcakes that have been mentioned at one point or another and have definitely piqued my interest but I just haven't gotten around to making them yet:
