Remember Bakerella's Snow Cone Cupcakes? They were beautiful, but let's face it, a bit of work.
I made cupcakes for a work pot luck today, and didn't have the proper cupcake wrappers (nor the proper time!) but I did want to make show-stopper cupcakes.
I made white cupcakes from a mix, and added red sprinkles to the batter, stirring so that they appeared to have red stripes. Actually, they did have red stripes!
Then I bought some Duncan Hines Frosting Creations with Cotton Candy Flavoring. The cotton candy flavoring happens to be blue!
I frosted the cupcakes, and then worked on the tops.
For the tops, I took plastic appetizer forks (which I found in the wine aisle at the grocery store), added a couple of raspberries, and then drizzled melted white chocolate over the berries. When the white chocolate was set, I added the forks to the tops of the cupcakes.
And this is how they came out!
Decorating took less than 30 minutes. And they were a real hit at the pot luck!
Folks called me the Martha Stewart of our department. I hope they meant because of the cupcakes, not because they think I might be capable of obstructing justice.... :-)
