My Llittle Cuppy Cakes

My latest experiment in the kitchen stemmed from the infamous cake balls that we all know and love. I had seen them made into cupcakes (yes Heather, you inspire me) and thought they would be so cute, so I decided to give it a try. I didn't want have to deal with dipping 2 times so I decided to first dip them in vanilla almond bark, add sprinkles and then put them into cupcake liners filled with chocolate almond bark. Here is the cupcake line-up. It took several tries before I got all of the logistics right. At first the cake balls were too big, then I made them smaller, but didn't use enough chocolate, and so on until we get the perfect mini cuppy cake.

Oh, cute! I had to take a pic with my hand so you could see how itty bitty mini they are and that somehow makes them even cuter.
A whole bunch of cuppy cakes, seriously, my mouth is watering again. I spent so much time on these little monsters that I just sat and held them at the luncheon. I knew that the second I put them down, the kids would swarm and they would be gone. I really wanted to cry, they were my little mini cuppy cake babies. But alas, they served their purpose well.
Why go to all this work you might ask? Here she is, and worth every minute. (too bad she didn't get to enjoy them)
And now that we have cried over losing my cuppy cakes, we need some comic relief. My husband is always good for that.
Brian is working on his "Sympathy" skills.

That pictures is so funny! Your mini cupcake babys look so good. I would have kept them all for myself and then felt guilty about it after they were all gone. Good thing you shared!

It's hard to work so hard on something just to have it devoured in minutes! Those look so yummy and cute! Wanna give me some lessons?! And I can definitely see where Mo gets that face from! Go daddy! He's a hoot! I vote yes for Creed and Mo getting together later on in life! Are arranged marriages still legal? :0)

So, Jer wants to have those every day! That night he was telling me that we needed to make them and keep them around so he can have two a day for the rest of his life! You did well my sister. Can I put an order in for 2 a day for the rest of Jer's life? I don't know if I am up to the task!
