hi hat halloween cupcakes


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!!!

These cupcakes are amazing, Hanna! Yes, you are one brave woman. While stunning, I don't think I would ever attempt these!! Yes, I love Bakerella's Blog, too. As always, your photography is gorgeous ~~ love the photo of the cupcake cut in half and the glistening chocolate chips!

Oh well done, they've come out perfectly!
Love the pink idea for the shower, maybe with a tiny bit of edible glitter . . . I like a bit of bling on my cakes ;-).

Jackie said...

MMMM. These look a-mazing!

Little Mochi said...

Oh my!!!! I will have to find the courage and buck up and make these little yum yums ;)

Holly said...

These look so delicious. I'm so glad you posted that they were difficult though, because otherwise I'm sure I'd be trying to whip up a batch right now. My baking skills are still set at kindergarden level. ;)

I have an award for you over on my blog today! Check it out here:

Aimee said...

OK OMG these look amazing... I am sad to hear they are a bit difficult to make. I am a very beginning baker meaning I have only made basic cookies, fudge, and brownies. I will have to wait till I get more baking under my belt.

Alicia said...

Those look sinfully scrumptious

Drama Queen said...

RTF'ing the follow! Thanks for stopping by. Aren't these blog hops a lot of work? Trying to hit as many as possible, then go back over the next few days and actually read the blogs. And those cupcakes are yummy looking.

Wowza, can't imagine making those with a baby. Great food photos. The pie pictures almost made me love pie (I'm not a pie person).

Canadian Thanksgiving was last weekend...which means FOOD, FOOD, AND MORE FOOD. I gained 4 pounds. No cupcakes, no matter how stunningly gorgeous, for me. Eat a couple for me, would ya? I'm licking my lips and rolling my eyes. Delicious.

Jen said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog Hanna! I'll definitely head over to the giveaways.

And wow. Talk about amazing cupcakes, but I have to admit, don't know if I would attempt them with my 14 month old hanging at me knees. Thanks again!

Brenda said...

WOW!! Absolutely stunning. You have far more patience than I do. Excellent job!

Jacqueline said...

I am tickled to follow you back Hanna. These are a work of art. I love blogging because even if you have a few mishaps along the way you don't have to show them and no one has to taste them. I made cupcakes today and liked my finger, much to my dismay, I thought I was sprinkling sanding sugar on them and it was citric acid, kind of vanilla frosting with a kick! Off came that frosting. So nice to meet you, I love your blog.

adrienzgirl said...

These are so cute! I love them. Looks like a dipped ice cream cone!

Simplegirl said...

Oh my those look so yummy! Now following your beautiful blog.

Buffee said...

The thought of licking my screen actually crossed my mind! OH MY GOODNESS! These look so delicious and so adorable!

Ashley said...

Ok seriously, what kind of camera do you have? Your pictures are so beautiful! I had never seen sparkly chocolate until now. You sure have a way of making food look great!!!

Thanks for stopping by Forever In The Kitchen!

Gosh Hanna how do you manage to take such BEAUTIFUL pictures of your food. I mean it's stunning how you make chocolate chips look like sparkling jewels. And as hard as they were to make, I'll bet those are tasty little suckers.

Oh and yes if you aren't completely exhausted I say a big YES to pink frosted ones for Gingers shower. My mouth is watering for one
