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.
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?
