finally… a bit o’ recognition from Martha

Despite being horribly un-photogenic and terrified of being on TV, it is a dream of mine to be on Martha, and I get pangs of angst and jealousy when I see anything cookie related on her show (surely, that should be me showing Martha that). Well, I feel a wee bit closer to achieving said dream, and I must brag, for I was selected as one of the winners of the Cutest Cupcake Contest 2009! Yay!

My pig-head-on-a-stick-cupcakes won this:

I can’t wait to bake something from the book. See all the entries HERE.

how to make piggy cupcakes

you will need:
piggy cookies on a stick
shredded coconut
green food coloring

step one: make your piggy cookies on a stick
View my post HERE to make piggy cookies on a stick, making sure to use small lollipop sticks (about 4 inches).

step two: make and frost cupcakes
Place shredded coconut in a sealable baggie and add a few drops of green food coloring. Shake the sealed back well to tint the coconut. Top cupcakes with frosting that has been tinted green. Immediately press the green coconut on top of the icing.

step three: assemble your cupcakes
Simply insert the lollipop stick into the cupcake.
