Edible cupcakes! :)  10-Calorie Cupcakes?  Haha.

These are my Micro Cupcakes AKA Thimble Cupcakes!  I really love making these, even though they take lots of time and consideration for detail and there is *little* room for error.  :]  (I've made them a few times, for a birthday, for family, for a graduation and my husband is taking a "dozen" into work today.  Hahah!

I set out to find the most true-to-shape way to make the smallest cupcakes possible, and, without making my own sheet metal pans with micro-mini divots and the ability to make AIR-Bubble-LESS cake mix...well, this is the way.  With thimbles!

Thimble safety - Mine are nickel-plated and this is what I found online - I did some research on nickel plating and saw that they do this for oven racks and people cook on those. Further research said that nickel plating would only be broken up by constant exposure to acidic properties. So I figured that as long as there is no acidic properties in the cupcakes, all is well. :)  My advice, is to check that the plating exists in the insides of the thimbles when you open them, not just on the outside.  Look for the shiny silver.  This is based on information from spending time on google and searching before I baked in them.

Step 1: What you need!

Cake mix, or your own batter recipe.
Thimbles (more will save you time!) - I got mine 3x- $1 at the dollar store!! Hale-yeah.
A Pan to Pam and put the thimbles in.
Squeeze bottles from the dollar store or Michael's for condiments.
An eye for detail, and PATIENCE.  :D

Network Marketing is a funny industry that's simultaneously full of almost religious <a href="http://www.philkrnjeu.com/" rel="nofollow">network marketing training</a><br>Many people who begin a network marketing business forget the importance of the word 'network'. The path to success in this business model is to build a sales organisation and you receive commissions for referring people to the business opportunity. There are different terms for this role but the one that is widely understood is Sponsor. You are sponsoring people into the business opportunity.<br><br>Most network marketers quit, except for the leaders, who start looking for additional training and education. Hungry for success, members of the latter group end up easy prey for the current network marketing training scams.<br><br>Unfortunately, most MLM companies' network marketing training programs consist of barely motivational meetings on conference calls. Most mlm companies fail to teach their distributors the basics of marketing and communications skills. This is considered one of the major reasons for the high rate of failure in multi-level marketing programs.<br><br><br>There are many things to take into consideration when trying to find out what is the best network marketing company. While some people may consider their company the best because they have a great pay plan, others might consider theirs the best because their company made the most money last year. Some people might say they have the best MLM company because they have the tastiest products, while others will say that their company is the best, simple because they were told to say that and they are really looking for a <a href="http://www.philkrnjeu.com/" rel="nofollow">mlm business opportunities</a><br><br>lastly The <a href="http://www.philkrnjeu.com/" rel="nofollow">best network marketing company</a> for you is one that has several characteristics. Having said that not all companies in the network marketing industry can be the best. That doesn't mean the rest are bad. It just means that to be the best for you a network marketing company must have the 4 elements Which I reveal to you.

This was a lot of fun! <br>I had to up the temperature 350. It was taking 10 minutes instead of 4. And since I had 5 thimbles, I had to change it so I could save on time. <br>Other than that I loved it. Thanks for this fantastic Idea!

These are totally wild cupcakes. I really like the eerie electric blue batter. Thanks for sharing.
I am not much of a baker, and more of a crafter, so I guess that was the part that kept me captivated! :D &lt;3
could I make moulds from kitchen aluminum foil?<br>I have a hard time finding cheap thimble.the only ones I could find had the tops cut off....
