The class was hosted by Karen Tack, and cupcake design creator and food writer. Her books include Hello, Cupcake! and What's New, Cupcake? I highly recommend these books. They include inventive and very creative recipe ideas for cupcakes for ALL ages. The next cupcakes I would like to create are "spaghetti and meatball" cupcakes made with Rocher chocolates, strawberry preserves and shaved white chocolate to mimic the grated cheese. You can even add decorations such as grape juice for wine and a red and white checkered table cloth to create an Italian restaurant feel. These cupcakes are great for holidays, birthdays and any type of celebration. They even have wedding cupcake creation ideas. These are easy, fun DIY projects that are fun for the whole family.
|This was supposed to be a cockroach...A date was used for the body and caramel for the wings.|
|He says rarr!|
|My pumpkin! The mouth is made of Starbursts and Tootsie Rolls|
|I love my Turkey!|
I will be keeping my eye out for future classes with Karen. She was such a pleasure to work with and learn from! I also look forward to creating these cupcakes at home with my family and friends.
I gave the alien to my uncle, the pumpkin to my brother, the werewolf to my mom, the Turkey for myself, and the cockroach I gave to my dad. They all enjoyed them :-)
