Bakerella. I did these cupcakes last year. It ties in well with the lemony snickets theme, as I was unable to find the black rope licorice and ended up having to cut regular licorice in sixths lengthwise for 50 cupcakes (for a grand total of 300 legs). I call them my tarantulas. You can read more about them here.Family. Check out their Jack Skellington Cupcakes.
And I haven't forgotten about the big reveal. Remember last week's Grape-Lemonade Ghost Ice Pops attempt (from none other than Martha)? Well...
The directions said to give it 3 hours to 1 week (quite the gap??). I gave it 3 days and it STILL wasn't done. Hmm... and this is how they looked.The left one was by far the best and the stick is crooked. The right one is good if you didn't know it was supposed to have pupils. You might notice the one on top that we are calling a hat. And the other is still a mystery. I can't help but wonder how many hundreds of tries it took to get their perfect popsicles. So, a bit of a flop. Martha is back to my crap list. Why oh why must she tempt me with such fun ideas?
