Today was Uncle Bug's birthday. I made a tray of my famous lasagna for supper and served spaghetti for dessert... look closer. Spaghetti cupcakes!
They were lemon cupcakes that we first scratch frosted with buttercream icing and then I piped the "noodles" with a plain tip on my pastry bag.
Loopy was in charge of the meatballs. They are Ferrero Rocher chocolates tossed with unsweetened raspberry preserves. For a fun touch, we grated white chocolate "parmesan cheese" on the top of the entire dish before serving.
I can't take credit for the idea... it came from this cool book entitled Hello Cupcake by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson. Check out their website. If you follow this little blog, I will be attempting most of the cupcakes in the book in the near future.
Tell me about the cutest cupcakes you ever did see, Dear Reader.
