It's been a little too long since my last post. I am a slacker to say the least! I am snowed in today and had a revelation that I would blog. I can not believe how long it has been since my last entry. So, If anyone is still following me, Hi......Here is a cute little tutorial on sprucing up some cupcakes for a baby shower.
Make cake balls (the right way, see my tutorial here, If your a comedian and want to see how NOT to make them then read this)
I like to dip my stick in melted chocolate to act as "glue"
If you don't have a candy melter, use a double boiler (I usually put a glass bowl over a saucepan with enough water to boil, but doesn't touch the glass bowl bottom). This is my niece's candy melter, I didn't think it was any easier to use than a double boiler.
get some miniature cupcake liners and cut a slit down one side
Dip all of the cake pops in melted chocolate. I tinted these with a very small dot of orange to make a flesh color. Place in refrigerator for about 15-30 minutes to harden
After the chocolate has hardened, place each one into the liner and tape the bottom around the stick. This makes the top flare out like a little bonnet.
Hot glue a bow, and with brown colored chocolate, or melted chocolate chips, pipe a face onto each one. I put them back into the refrigerator for 15-30 min and your done!
I carried them in Tupperware with wax paper between each layer and placed them in the cupcakes at the event. I also make some chocolate letters of the babies name and used them as cupcake toppers.
I need one of those great cameras so my pics actually look as cute as the finished product!
Here is Diana, the Mommy. She had a boy by the way.......
