although the drop-off day came right on the heels of a monstrous, super complicated batch of cookies that i still need to share with you. so i was rather baked out at that point, but i made a commitment and i was sticking to it, dang it.
so after perusing my pinterest boards for something fun/easy/eyecatching, i stumbled across this adorable idea. using this recipe for delicious chocolate cupcakes, i finally got to use a set of super cute cupcake liners that have been in my kitchen, just waiting for the right opportunity.
with some leftover royal icing, i "glued" some chocolate chips onto white candy melts.
because i wanted to package the cupcakes individually (easier for me to transport, and i'm hoping easier for them to sell), i dropped the cupcakes into a plastic tumbler after cutting out a little section from the top. i dropped squirts (that sounds GROSS) of blue frosting onto each cupcake to make it look like hair:
then i wedged two of the "eyes" i'd made and stuffed a famous amos cookie into the hole i'd cut out.
although it definitely wasn't my idea, i think these are just so cute.
see, they present well, right?
the ladies at the drop-off were so sweet when i took them in. i'm really curious about how they did at the sale, but i feel like it would be weird to ask. oh, well. i'm just gonna assume they sold like hotcakes and brought in a crapload of cash for the fundraiser.
i'm an optimist, you know.
