spaghetti and meatballs (on a cupcake!)

While perusing Facebook last night, I saw some photos from a college friend's birthday party. I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw the AMAZING "spaghetti and meatball" cupcakes that his girlfriend made for him.

Photo and recipe found on

After a little Googling I found that this adorable idea comes from the book Hello, Cupcake! which I'm prettttttty sure I need to have. I mean, come on — I AM Mrs. Cupcake!

The "spaghetti" is piped icing; the "meatballs" are Ferrero Rocher candies; the "sauce" (or gravy, if that's your thing) is raspberry or strawberry jam; and the "parmesan cheese" is grated white chocolate. has it pegged as an April Fool's Day recipe, but I think these would be adorable anytime. Maybe dessert following a yummy Italian meal?


  1. Adorable idea! I absolutely LOVE cupcakes. Thanks for posting!

  2. that is a great idea! those are so cool!

  4. this reminds me of the fab cookbook that Terry got me for X-MAS
