I think I must have channeled Martha Stewart in my sleep, because I woke up feeling a need to make cupcakes. I started looking at food blogs and we all know how that ends.
I decided to make a basic vanilla cupcake recipe and focus on the frosting. I made one batch of cupcakes but divided the mixture into small and medium cupcake liners.
I covered the smaller ones with a vanilla buttercream frosting and a cherry on top.
The bigger ones got a coat of classic Swedish icing (water and confectioners sugar) colored dark grey. I then used licorice rope as legs and licorice allsorts as eyes.
Now I've only got one problem. Who's gonna eat all these cupcakes and save me from a sugar rush that's gonna last for days?
