High Heel Cupcakes

My, it's been a little while since I've posted.  Things have been rather up-in-the-air around here lately with school starting and our schedules being upended. I'm sure we'll adjust eventually, but right now we're just trying to work it out.

A coworker of mine was throwing a bridal shower for her sister and asked me to make cupcakes.  She sent me a photo of some cupcakes and asked me to recreate them. I did my best, and I think they came out kind of cute.


They're high heels!  I had never seen such a thing.  If anyone knows who came up with this idea, please, let me know.  They're cupcakes with Milano and Pirouette cookies.


Making them fit in a cupcake box was an experience.



The lid just barely fit over them without squishing.


Anyway, these were a lot of fun, but rather time consuming.  Sorry for the awful pictures.  I fell off the wagon and went back to using my phone.I need to charge my camera.


Well, that's all for now.
Enjoy!

  2. The high heel shoe idea comes from a book called cupcakes, cookies & pie, oh, my!It's written by Karen Tack & Alan Richardson. I have the book & it has some really cute ideas. Your "shoes" turned out awesome!

  4. I love them!! You did a great job. Knowing my luck I would never manage to balance the cookies on the "heel" part!

    1. Haha! Thanks! The heel was glued in place with lots of icing. I was surprised they stayed put!
