I used to make these little cupcake bites from Bakerella quite a few times on my own (you can see my halloween version here). I feel it is a very relaxing process to make these because there are so many steps, but yet it’s very simple to make. It’s almost like an assembly line. Such order can make you feel like everything is in your control. You can change the colors of the candy melts or the cake and frosting in the middle, but the whole process usually stays the same, which I like. I also like making the chocolate go on perfectly (no cake is showing). It is quite difficult, but once you get it, it feels so good!
Deciding to take a baking class was probably one of the most fun decisions I had all year. I met some new people and learned how they like to bake and who they bake for. I got to spend more time with one of my friends, since she wanted to take the class with me. I was able to bake almost every week something new and got to learn some new techniques. Oh, and did I mention you just bake cookies?! It was so awesome to me because I love cookies so much!
I decided to make Bakerella’s cupcake bites for my company potluck for Halloween. I love to make them, even though it is a long process. The first time I made them, they didn’t turn out as great because I didn’t master the dipping process. This is my third time making them, and I think I pretty much got it down. It took me about 3 hours to make. Some people might say that’s too much work, but I find it so relaxing and satisfying to see my cupcake bites turn out just right. They were a big hit at the potluck. These are definite crowd pleasers because they look so cute and taste delicious.
I have always been a fan of cupcakes, even before Sprinkles existed. I loved the idea of having a mini cake all to yourself, not just a slice of a cake. Not only that, you can also get the perfect amount of frosting with your cupcake! I’m the kind of person who wants the middle of the cake, because it doesn’t have too much frosting like the end piece does. Cupcakes are the best kind of cake out there!
