3  COOKING / Dessert / Re: That's-a Spicy Meatball! Spaghetti Cupcakes on: April 08, 2014 04:14:01 PM
I got the idea from a book called "Hello, Cupcake!"  It has a lot of really cute designs.  But if anyone is interested, this is how I made them:

Start with a box of yellow cake mix.  Instead of the water the mix calls for, use 1 cup of buttermilk (you can make your own with 1 cup milk mixed with 1 tablespoon lemon juice.  Mix and let sit for 10 minutes).  Use whatever amount of vegetable oil the box calls for, and use 4 eggs instead of whatever the box calls for.  Mix for 30 seconds on low speed to blend, then mix at a higher speed for 2 minutes.  Follow the baking instructions on the box.

For the icing: use 1 can of white icing (do not use fluffy or whipped).  Mix 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder and 3 drops of yellow food coloring with the icing.  Lightly ice the cupcakes, then set them right next to each other on the cake board or plate you'll be using to present them.  To make the noodles, you put the icing into your piping bag or ziploc bag with a "writing" tip.  Ice the cupcakes to look like noodles.  For the sauce, use low sugar strawberry preserves (low sugar has the best color).  Spoon the preserves onto the cupcakes right before serving.  For the meatballs, use the ferrero rocher candies.  Toss the candies with the preserves and put one onto each cupcake.  For the parmesan cheese, grate some white chocolate over the top.

I have so much fun doing video game swaps.  I'd prefer not to organize this one, so if someone else can that would be great.  Basically it would be any kind of craft for your swap partner based on their favorite games or characters.  Anyone interested?

Thank you!  Everyone liked them, but my brother didn't want to eat them because he said it looked too much like there was a real meatball on them lol.

I wanted to make cupcakes for my dad's and brother's birthday party (their birthdays are on the same day).  My dad is very proud of his Italian heritage, so I thought spaghetti and meatballs would be cute.  The spaghetti is white icing tinted with cocoa powder and yellow food coloring, the sauce is strawberry preserves, the meatballs are ferrero rocher candies coated with strawberry preserves, and the parmesan cheese is grated white chocolate.





And this was my trial cupcake to make sure I could get the cupcakes to look like spaghetti and meatballs.


Thanks for looking!

This is a very complicated method, but it's probably the best one for what you need.

There are also some charts you can google that say what percentage to copy the patterns for certain doll sizes (such as Barbie to American Girl and so on).  I don't have access to a certain doll forum anymore so I'm afraid I can't get a link for you.
