Did I ever tell you about the book Hello, Cupcake? It's a really cool sort of cookbook with all kinds of great ideas for cupcakes that look like everything from dogs to TV dinners. I've never actually made anything from it, but I got the authors' second book anyway...
This one is really similar, just more great ideas. What's great about these books is that you use regular household tools and candy etc. to make everything. You don't need any special cake decorating tools.
You know I'm a sucker for things that look like food. But these are cupcakes that look like a big sandwich!!
I think these would be great for a summer barbecue.
Yarn anyone? They didn't leave out the crafters. Pretty neat, huh?
I started with a bunch of candy. I took some doing, but in the end I found everything I needed.
**Note: Don't get distracted talking to your husband when you have taffy in the microwave, just sayin'. oops
And here's the final product, I call them Ode to Panda Express. I think they turned out pretty good, don't you? haha
I look forward to trying out another idea from one of those books. These were really fun! (I think the broccoli was the best part!)
