This is a story about a failure.
What was originally supposed to be these beautiful 4th of July Cupcake in a Jar gifts for my VT girls...
|Aren't they beautiful?|
Mine did not turn out in any way like that. My cake colors weren't as vibrant. The cookie cutter didn't cut as neat and clean as I imagined it would. The cakes were A LOT more difficult to get in a jar and have them look cute afterward. The layers of frosting didn't turn out as pretty either. Wow. Cupcakes in a jar are apparantly not destined to be my specialty.
But now I had blue, white, and red (ok..pinkish) cakes...what do I do with them? Enter this lovely idea I remembered seeing online...
When the directions include "tear apart your cake you just baked", I knew I could make these with the mess that was my cupcake in a jar attempt.
And here's my finished product:
They were so easy to make!
I totally want to make some more. Like all of these pretty things:
The baseball cake pops would be a huge hit around here.
But I love them all.
