I found this lovely image somewhere on the internet and was very intrigued by it. A dessert that can soar through the air and so festive at that! There was no recipe so I made one up partly with a little inspiration from an old recipe about making "snowballs" from cupcakes.
So here are mine, I took the photo at an angel to give it that flying through the air look...
My how-to: Any flavor cake will do. I used chocolate just because I had some batter left over but red velvet cake or coconut or even strawberry would be neat. Only fill the cupcake wells about half full. Bake even number of cupcakes. Let cool, cut tops to make flat. Ice the tops of 2 cupcakes and stick together; top to top. Ice sides. Cover in flaked coconut. Pipe green leaves on top. Add red candies such as m&m's or red hots. Place candle. Light and stand back just in case they take flight!
Now, the top photo says 'ice cream'. Which could be done by making a ball of ice cream and covering it in coconut. Or perhaps, the recipe I wrote above could have the cupcakes hollowed out and ice cream put in the center. I do not , however, recommend throwing them on a plate like a frisbee as a serving suggestion! I have a feeling the spoon wouldn't stay on the plate like the picture shows!
update: Barb from Woof Nanny found the recipe for the ice cream version of the snowballs !
