DRUM ROLL PLEASE..........................................Oh My Goodness.........these cupcakes are stunning!!! And very difficult to make. I'm giving you fair warning in case you get brave and want to try yourself. I was inspired to make these beauties from viewing the A*M*A*Z*I*N*G Bakerella Blog and if your not already reading her blog, You should be. It's amazing!!!
So yes, while beautiful and fun, as I was beating the frosting over boiling water for 12 minuets with my 11 month old clinging to my legs, I thought "I'll never make these again." I would say these are moderate to difficult on the difficulty scale. I also had trouble finding a piping tip that was big enough so I ended up buying a plastic one and cutting the tip off with a box cutter. Yes, these babies were not smooth sailing for me but I have to say I am very pleased with the way they turned out.
Also I would like to thank Alexandra over at Enchanted Events and Design Blog for donating these adorable cup cake toppers to me. You can also find her here on her website where she offers beautiful wedding planning.
Now, I have to say, after all that moaning and groaning I did about what a pain these were to make I had a thought. What if I made these but dipped them in light pink chocolate for Ginger's baby shower???? G*A*S*P!!!! Wouldn't that be amazing? I might just have to!!!
