Valentine's Day is right around the corner and my little one has been begging me to make those cute little Princess Peepers cupcakes. So, we decided to go PINK and have fun! The original recipe came from author Mary Ann Dames on her recipe blog here: Princess Peepers Party Glasses
Since I didn't have any food coloring paints, I decided to use something that was edible, malleable, and already in Princess Peepers pink: Laffy Taffy's!
In order to make the taffy more like dough, I put the candy in the microwave for 10 seconds.
Then we rolled it and started cutting out the lenses. We used all kinds of shapes with our nifty jello cutters (aspic) we got from this online shop:
Sur La Table!
Then my little princess cut out the lenses, and the arms of the glasses. We made about four glasses, but three got eaten. Oops!
Here's the finished product:
The hardest part about making these is NOT, I repeat, NOT to eat the glasses before they can go on the cupcakes! But at least we had one finished cupcake to show you.
Now, I'm off to eat another cupcake because I have a cold and I deserve it...tee hee!
