Cupcake Flops

Aren't these the cutest little treats you have ever seen? I thought so too. I'm helping with my friend Heather's upcoming bridal shower and I thought these Cupcake Pops from Bakerella would be the perfect treat at the shower. The looked kinda tricky to make so I decided it would be a good idea to practice before I made them for other people. Thank goodness I did! Just check out these disasters:
Not quite the same, is it? Instead of cute mini cupcakes, I got what resembled lumpy blobs on a stick. To my credit, they were pretty complicated and super messy (see the mess in the background.) I guess I just don't have the gift. BUT they did taste delicious!!! So I will be making them again, I will just form them in to cupcake balls so they look like lollipops instead of trying to make them look like cupcakes. That was where everything went wrong for me.

Hey, it's the taste that matters, right?? Martha Stewart had a "cupcake week" on her show- I never watch that but heard that she was doing that and had to watch every day for a week. They made those one day and I thought they were so cute! Good to know that it's more complicated than they make it look, though, so I guess I won't be trying them out!
