This year Santa brought Sydney a Bella Cucina Cupcake Maker.
We made one of the recipes that came with the maker and it was terrible. The outsides were burned and the middle wasn't even cooked at all. We decided to clean it up and try it again another day. I was a little disappointed and thinking "what the heck did I buy?". We pulled it back out the next day and decided to just do a cake mix out of a box and try that.
I put some red hot candies in the middle of some of them and pushed then into the batter. This turned out really good and gave them good flavor and the candy became chewy. (sorry this is kind of a blurry picture)
It only took 3-5 min for these to cook and they turned out super light and fluffy!
We tried this red and white striped frosting and a few of them turned out ok. Sometimes you couldn't really see the white frosting. It was kind of hard to squeeze out and was hard to control where it went on the cupcake. I don't think that I will ever use it again.
We used some Valentine's sprinkles to dip the cupcakes in. Sydney loved doing this. She had a lot of fun coming up with different designs.
Do you have any treat makers that you have? like it? I would love to try some of the other ones in the future.
