First batch- cupcakes.....
As you can tell, I had a mishap with the food coloring- so the actual cake balls are a strange mustard yellow color... *shudders*
The cupcakes themselves turned out pretty well for my first time. I am definately going to need my styrofoam next time- I ran out after like 8 pops.
Then I tried some bunnies. I didn't want to spend loads of time on the bunnies..... they turned out looking like a strange combination of a pig, cat, and the mouse from If You Give a Mouse a Cookie books.
A bunny only a mother could love....
Then I moved on to chicks. I decided I didn't want to get involved with more food coloring to make the chicks yellow- so they are my green-eyed albino chicks!
"Did you see that?" "See what? She forgot to give us eyes!"
For the future:
I do not need to buy paramount crystals- melting the dots in a mug worked fine enough- and it was deep enough to dip the cake balls into.
I do need to invest in better edible pens- I am sure the bunnies would have looked alot better with a black pen instead of blue (and bleeding red ears)
Cake balls can only be so big- I have a tray of heavy duds to account for that.
