spaghetti and meatballs (on a cupcake!)

While perusing Facebook last night, I saw some photos from a college friend’s birthday party. I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw the AMAZING “spaghetti and meatball” cupcakes that his girlfriend made for him.

Photo and recipe found on foodbuzz.com

After a little Googling I found that this adorable idea comes from the book Hello, Cupcake! which I’m prettttttty sure I need to have. I mean, come on — I AM Mrs. Cupcake!

The “spaghetti” is piped icing; the “meatballs” are Ferrero Rocher candies; the “sauce” (or gravy, if that’s your thing) is raspberry or strawberry jam; and the “parmesan cheese” is grated white chocolate.

About.com has it pegged as an April Fool’s Day recipe, but I think these would be adorable anytime. Maybe dessert following a yummy Italian meal?
