I apologize in advance if you have a sensitive stomach or are easily squeamish. But this was too gross and too awesome not to share.
Last month my son T turned 10. For his birthday he wanted me to make Cupcake Cones:
T decided he wanted colored cones and chocolate cake and icing.
Everything went as planned and they were actually starting to look pretty cute.
Until the icing. Then things went horribly wrong.
Do you see what I see?
Are you simultaneously laughing and throwing up in your mouth a little?
Every cupcake looked like a dog took a big ol’ dookie right on top of it. It was the grossest thing E-V-E-R.
Good thing the party was full of 9 and 10 year old boys. They thought the “poop cupcakes” were
THE BEST THING EVER.
Of course they did…
We convinced them it was a “dog poop themed” party. They thought I was the coolest mom ever.
So, was it really a FAIL?
They were delicious and the boys loved them.
But, on the other hand, they looked like poop.
The verdict is still out.
Moral of the story: Don’t use the ziploc bag trick (and here) to ice your cupcakes when you are using chocolate icing. Unless you are purposely going for crappy cupcakes. Then by all means, throw some chocolate chips into the icing as well. Might as well make it chunky looking.
I think I’ll stick to vanilla icing in the future.
