The best combination since pb & chocolate? Oh yes, it is the high heel shoe made from a cupcake! This were really fun to make after watching the clip from Hello Cupcake's segment on the Today Show.
The base is a cupcake (obviously). The sole is a grahm cracker coated in chocolate. The heel is made of a pirouette cookie dipped in chocolate. They were decorated with frosting and decorating sugar. I would have liked to make a label for the inside of the shoe, or paint the sole red like Christian Louboutin shoes. These could get really fun!
I would do a few things differently next time (mostly in regard to the construction of the heel to the sole as they didn't travel well). Most likely will try to use royal icing, since it hardens and holds better.
However, these are supposed to be featured in the next Hello Cupcake book entitled Cupcakes, Cookies, and Pie, Oh My! due to release in January 2012. I look forward to seeing their instructions to see how they differ from my attempt.
Yes, it is a cupcake!
