Oh yes, I'm going there.
If you are a fan of the TV show "Glee," you know there were two very beautiful weddings on Friday. Since I've loved Kurt and Blaine since they were introduced, I wanted to make a little treat for the occasion. I would have made these for Friday if I hadn't been at a hotel, so they came a bit late for the big "Klaine" wedding on Friday.
For the cupcakes, I decided to go with the red and yellow roses theme that spans throughout the Kurt and Blaine relationship.
First thing is first: I used my chocolate coffee cupcake recipe for these, because if anything says "Klaine," it's a cup of coffee.
|New York + Klaine please.|
Along with the red and yellow roses theme, we already had yellow, purple and teal cupcake liners in the kitchen - which fits perfectly with the color coordination that the pair favor in very significant scenes.
Next up, the obvious: make the cupcake batter (with the recipe linked above) and fill the cupcake pan with appropriately colored liners.
After the cupcakes cooled, it was time for the fun part - decorating! I just used a plain white frosting (cream cheese - yum!) and then placed the roses on the cupcakes. We sort of experimented here: some only had one, others two.
The result: beautiful and colorful cupcakes! The chocolate roses are an extra - delicious - treat!
I feel you could adapt this recipe for your own use in many ways. It be perfect for a Spring themed party or treat. There are so many different color candy melts: pink, blue, green, yellow - all of which would bring some color into the next few months. And I know, florals? For spring? Groundbreaking. But it works.
If you decide to do any spin off of this - or explore other chocolate molds - do feel free to share them with me! Enjoy!
Until next time,
