Cupcake Bites

The Vikings play the Packers tonight.  We're suppose to be having an outdoor tailgate at our house and suppose to be watching the game on the big screen outside.  However, due to weather, I have a feeling it will be cancelled.  Nonetheless, I made these yesterday just in case.

Let me just start by saying, these are a pain in the butt.  I got the idea from Bakerella.  Basically, you take a baked cake, mash it up, combine it with a tub of frosting, roll little balls out of the mixture, and then coat them in candy melts of your choice.  I urge you to visit her site, because what I created is nothing what they are suppose to look like.

There, that is from her site.  That is how they should look.  And, maybe you want to make me feel better and say "well, she probably makes hundreds of these and picks the best 5 for the picture".  True, she might.  But, I made at least 40 and I couldn't even find one that remotely resembled hers.

I mean, I had some really ugly ones.

However, they are delicious.  I had to hide them from Rob so he didn't eat them all, just in case the party does happen.

Either way, Skol Vikings!


  1. Can I come before lessons and eat one?? They look so yummy! And festive! :)

  2. I think you are being to hard on yourself. They look very good to me and have to taste good. That "Home Made" look always means they are better than the fancy looking ones.
