Fun, easy, and (her's are) adorably sweet - I'm 100% on the cupcake bite bandwagon and it's left the station (how many more incorrectly used cliches can I cram in here?).
Let's put it plainly - I saw these, knew I had to have them one way or another and thought "while I'm not likely to make a cake resembling a baseball glove or tree laden with fall-colored leaves, this I might be able to do".
The best part is that these are so within your reach! Don't be intimidated (do-not!) that you have to use a little candy mold or that you think you might need to buy any other special tools (you don't!) - heck, if I can do it, you can too - sure, my process and technique needs some refining but for a first attempt, I wasn't disappointed.
And go figure, PW is nice enough to provide step by step directions (from when everything-cupcake queen Bakerella visited a few weeks back) that hit the mark.
Lastly, I hate to tempt you like this, but if you think my attempts above are even remotely cute, do NOT click here... oh my gosh the cuteness is just out of this world. If you do risk it, though, remember I warned you... just sayin'.
