Introduction: Spaghetti and Meatball Cupcakes

Here is a fun cupcake idea for the family to enjoy and make together, they are very easy to make :) My son really thought they were spaghetti and meatballs. He is such a picky eater I didn't think I could even get him to try one. But once I told him that it was chocolate, he dug in and ate every bite. My husband loves these, they are fun and sooooo yummy!

You can place the cupcakes together to make a bowl of spaghetti, or you can make individual plates for each person. I think this would be fun for a party or April fools. I've always thought that cupcakes that look like the main course are so fun, so I just had to try out making spaghetti and meatballs!

What is needed
Cake Mix or your favorite cupcake recipe (You need everything to make it)
1 Can Vanilla Frosting
2 Cups powder Sugar
1 Package of Ferrero Rocher Chocolates
1 Pint of Strawberries
1 container of Strawberry Glaze
3 Small White Chocolates (to look like cheese on top)

Step 1: Making Cupcakes

Make Cupcakes according to cake mix box or make your favorite recipe.

Let cupcakes cool

While the cupcakes cool you can mix up the vanilla frosting with the powder sugar until the texture is thicker so that you can decorate with it, and it will hold its shape. I didn't put any dye in mine, but if you want you could add a little dye to make it look more like a "noodle" color.

Place frosting in a decorator bag with a number 5 tip (I used a number 7 but I think a 5 would make things look better)


Frost your cooled cupcakes to make your "Noodles" you can make seperate cupcakes or drape the "noodles" across multiple cupcakes like I did. Just squeeze the bag and slowly move it across the cupcakes making it "noodle length", then release it, and repeat as many times as you would like for how ever many "noodles" you want on our cupcakes.


Step 2: Making Meatballs

Make the glaze by adding strawberries and glaze in a blender until it is the color and texture you would like to have your "sauce" be.

Unwrap the Ferrero Rocher chocolates and place them in the bowl of glaze you mixed up. Don't add too much sauce because you want your "meatballs" to still have some texture to them.

Then place the "meatballs" on top of your "noodles" and spread some "sauce" across the top of the cupcakes.

Step 3: Top With "Cheese"

Take your white chocolate and slide it on a cheese grater to create your "cheese" to go on top of everything. Sprinkle it over the top of your spaghetti and meatballs, and you are ready to dig in.

Enjoy! They are yummy!

Idea is great! It would be a good April Fools thing cuz I know that id take a "meatball" and expect to taste...well, a meatball! Instead it would be this ball of chocolaty fruity goodness!
