Some of you may remember that awhile back, I created some edible cupcake toppers.
They looked like tiny cupcakes. But really, they were just mini Reece’s Cups.
It was like a cute food version of a Jedi mind trick. And for a quick minute, they were pretty popular.
The girls on The View talked about them (Whoopie, of course, had some controversial things to say, but whatever), Joy the Baker did a video on her blog called “Bake Out with Pretend Tiny Reece’s Cupcakes”, and Pioneer Woman posted a picture of her Basset Hound, Charlie, eating a tiny Cupcake Cupcake Topper.
I was even contacted by Lifetime Television with a Cupcake Cupcake Topper movie proposal. But then I found out that my part was to be played by Tracy Gold, and I had to put my foot down, because if Kirk Cameron saw me being played by Carol Seaver, he will look at me as a sister and that would totally ruin all my childhood dreams.
Okay, so maybe none of that happened.
But it totally could. Except for the Pioneer Woman part, because chocolate is bad for dogs.
Anyways, I came to a decision that my Cupcake Cupcake Toppers would not be complete until they were followed up by a slightly less awesome sequel.
That’s just the way of the world, isn’t it?
So here is my attempt at another edible topper. And because I am super creative, I have named it the Cake Cupcake Topper.
Because it looks like a cake.
Somewhere, deep inside of my heart, is a tiny pink princess who never lived her dream of attending sparkly tea parties.
I wonder if I can pull my son away from his nunchuks long enough to sit and eat pink food with me.
Wanna know how to make these?
- Double Stuff Oreos (Golden or Chocolate, your choice)
- Canned Frosting
- Red candies (I used Mary Engelbreit Cherry Berries that I found at Michaels. I'm sure that Sixlets or large nonpareils would be good also)
- Piping Bag and 16 star tip
- Desired gel color, I used Wilton Rose
- Put some frosting for decorating in your prepared piping bag, fitted with the star tip. Color remaining frosting and heat in microwave, checking and stirring every five seconds. You want it runny, but thick. If it's too runny it will drip all over the place.
- Spread melted frosting on top of cookie with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon. Spread right to the edges of the cookie so it will drip down the sides just a bit. Let set for a minute or so.
- Pipe accents on with star tip and garnish with red candy. Place on cupcakes. /
Then, sit and admire them.
But never……..ever eat them.
Okay, dang it. You can eat them.
But I don’t want to know about it.
Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!
