Well it was my sisters 25th birthday so like every year I had to come up with some cool cake for her. I did make her a cake too but this post is about her cupcakes. She LOOVES fashion & every girl who loves fashion loves shoes so I made her high heel cupcakes.
To make these I used: funfetti cake mix, graham crackers, white chocolate melts, colored sprinkle, decorating gel, colorful cupcake holders, homemade vanilla frosting, hazelnut piroulines,
First I baked some cupcakes & let them cool down. As that was happening I cut the hazelnut piroulines on a diagonal & the graham crackers as you can see below. I cut them on a diagonal (they dont need to be perfect) then i melted the white chocolate & dipped the graham crackers in them. I used a knife to spread the white chocolate out. * if the white chocolate in the bowl starts to harden just put it in the microwave again to melt it. Once that dried i took some of the frosting gel & lined the edges & then dipped the sides into sprinkles I put on a plate. After that was done I made some vanilla frosting which I dyed different colors, frosted the cupcakes & designed however.
Once that was all done I took a spoon & took some of the cupcake off. Making these next time I would do it a little differently. I would place the graham cracker in first to see how they should be placed in & then spoon some cupcake away.
Once you take some of the cupcake away you place the graham cracker into the cupcake & at the same time dip the edge of the hazelnut pirouline into some white chocolate & stick it to the graham cracker to hold it up. Hold it there for a second til it dries & DONE. To decorate the shoes more I made some fondant bows. Now this was my first time making these so I learned my lessons & would be able to do them better next time. My advice do a few cupcakes fully through & then go back to the rest & do those. You can then learn from your mistakes & have most of the cupcakes turn out wonderful. (So bake all the cupcakes & separate the few when it gets to the spooning out some cupcake step)
Below are a few close up & side views of the cupcakes.
