Spaghetti and Meatballs

Or is it......?


They are actually cupcakes! Here's how to make them:

  1. Arrange iced (with slightly yellow tented frosting) vanilla cupcakes on a platter - stack them - make sure its not too perfect.

  2. Put more pale yellow icing into a plastic Ziploc bag and snip off the tip ever so slightly. Squeeze icing out to make "noodles" (your hands will hurt).

  3. Place some Fererro Rocher (hazelnut truffles) randomly over cupcakes to be the "meatballs".

  4. Whisk seedless strawberry jelly to get clumps out and make smooth. Pour over cupcakes and truffles as the "sauce".

FINALLY, Grate some white chocolate over it all for some Parmesan topping :)

I got this idea from the adorable book Hello, Cupcake!

I love them!

I've been thinking about you recently, as one of my fave bloggers... I'm reading 'Abundance' right now, which is about Marie's life, but told from her semi-fictional point of view. I'm falling in love with her! I can only hope that she really felt the feelings like in the book. It has some beautiful frothy and dreamy scenes in it, and I think you'd adore it.
