I love Martha Stewart! Also, cupcakes. So when she had Cupcake Week going on, I was actually caught up on my Tivo. Anywho, they did these fun CUPCAKE POPS. The chick from Bakerella was the guest! I went right to the Martha site to add the recipe to my FAVORITES. I kind of forgot about this for awhile, till I was blog hopping and came across the Bakerella blog. She had other ideas for these cupcake bites and all sorts of stuff. So I decided it was time to make them. I thought it would be fun to take pics, hoping they came out cute...Oh and the Cream Cheese Buttercream frosting was sooo good, it barely made it to the crumbled cake!!
(I may have skipped the step about only using 2 cups of frosting...wasn't paying attention to how much the frosting recipe actually made! LOL!!)
I didn't have the thing she shaped hers with, nor the patience to do each one. I was, after all, working with melting chocolate. If you take too long, it gets all hard, and you can't dip anymore. So the first few got kind of hand shaped. (Note to self, shape before getting chocolate melted!)
The kids loved them. They are still trying to sneak them. I had to take some to work and my sisters to get them out of the house!!!
