Must. Bake.Cupcakes.



This weekend I received a fabulous gift from my Aunt & Cousin when they came by to see the casa.
 My cousin Lily is also a blogging diva.
Check out her fashionista tendencies over at Lillies And Lace.
They presented me with a teacup cake baking set!


They are silicone cups that hold their shape without needing a muffin tin.
You fill, bake and decorate.
 Then place on their cute little plastic plates and serve.
 I had to try them out right away!

Out of the Oven

Cupcakes on Parade




Then it was on to my REAL project.
The real reason I dug out all the pots and pans to get my baking underway.
I had a request to bake "Opening day Baseball cup cakes"
Here is what I came up with!

HOTDOGS!!!


How to?

Circus Peanuts = buns
Squished up caramel squares = wieners

Use toothpick to make wiener lines on the ends

I filled my almond cakes with cherry pie  filling.
 I thought it seemed all American and fitting for baseball.
Plus I like Cherry WAY more than apple.

Frost the  cupcakes

Throw on some Mariners colored sprinkles

Boom. Baseball cupcake.

Turned out pretty cute!

ahhhh you used the teacup cake molds!! they're so adorable! and i like your weiner cupcakes, esp. the fact that you took the time to texturize the ends of them to make them look more realistic.
