i’ve said before, i have very few new ideas, but i LOVE to try out the ideas that other people have, just to see if i can do them! i found this tasty project at Crazy Domestic. I saw it and knew i had to try it. good thing i had a cake mix!! (like it’s a problem, me running out of cake mix!)
the hardest part for me was deciding what colors to make… i thought i’d try a red/pink one because it’s getting to be that time of year, and went with other colors on that end of the rainbow… i love the idea of using the flourescent food coloring, i’m going to have to get some of that!
i could’ve taken pics of the mini cupcakes all afternoon… but there were small children whining about how they wanted to eat them… so, whatever. the first part of the project is to make some mini cupcakes in various colors. 1 cake mix will make about 48 mini cupcakes, or 2 mini pans, use as many colors as you’d like. just be sure you have an even number of each so that you have matching tops and bottoms.
cut off the bottoms of the cupcakes. this sounds KRAY-ZEE, but feed those parts to the small children. they can’t whine as effectively if their mouths are full. use a can of frosting and color as many colors as you made cupcakes. this is where i was glad i didn’t go crazy cuz getting the frosting into the piping bag really was the most time consuming part of this whole thing. you can schmere it on with a knife, but i love those disposable piping bags and different decorator tips. they make me smile.
squeeze the frosting on the bottom of one, squoosh another one on top and wa-LA! tasty little cupcake sandwiches!
i ate 2, and i think my blood sugar is about 847 right now.
and so pretty, too!
