Cupcake Bites

30 Aug

I decided to try Bakerella’s infamous Cupcake Bites – I was not disappointed.

Original instructions can be found here.

So I baked my cake – er, cakes. I did chocolate and yellow butter cake:

Crumbled ‘em up and mixed in some vanilla icing:

Made them into little balls and froze ‘em:

And apparently forgot to take any other pictures of the “making” of the cupcake bites. But it’s really easy. Just fill your candy molds about half full and drop a cake ball in until the chocolate reached the top of the cup. Stick in the fridge or freezer for a bit and let the chocolate cool.

Then, you take the cake balls out with their new bases and dip them, top side down into another colored candy coating of your choice. Top with some sprinkles and maybe an M&M:

And there you have it!.

I have to say though – sorting M&Ms is just one of those things that makes you feel a little insane – and very much OCD.

I wrapped mine up in a couple of boxes, decorated with some stamping pizzazz, and sent them off as thank you gifts. We’ll see how they make it in the mail…
