April Fool’s Day- Spaghetti Cupcakes


spaghetti cupcakes


The office where my husband works, people regularly send in treats for everyone.  I had not sent anything in a while and needed to come up with something.   While I was looking around the net for an idea, I saw these spaghetti cupcakes and since Friday is April Fool’s Day I thought they would make a good funny treat. 

These cupcakes are so easy to make and took little time. You could buy premade cupcakes from a bakery and turn them into spaghetti cupcakes easily. My son thought they were so funny.  These are perfect to make with the kids, you can’t really mess them up. 


All you need is a tray of cupcakes.


Icing, a piping bag with a small round tip.  I used a Wilton No. 5 tip.  I added a dot of ivory food coloring to give the icing a more pasta color.


I put all the cupcakes on the tray I was sending the cupcakes on.  It made the icing noodles look a bit more like a platter of noodles having all the cupcakes together.

Then you need to add the “meatballs” and “sauce”.  I used chocolate candy and raspberry jam.  You could also use truffles.   Heat the jam just a little to make it easier to dip the candy and spread the jam.  Dip the candy in the jam and place on the cupcake. Spoon a little extra jam to make the sauce.  I keep the jam light on my cupcakes. 



Ready to serve
