Who's Excited for a New Cupcake?! I am I am!! Here you have it.. Hi-Hat Cupcakes. To start off bake however many cupcakes with whatever cake mix you want. My chosen beauty for today was a classic red velvet cake that I used to make some MINI cupcakes.. their just so dang adorable! Then, to create the masterpiece you must carefully mix egg whites, sugar, vanilla & almond extract over simmering water until the temp slowly rises to 160 degrees.. in addition, there will be stiff peaks forming.
This batch is ready to rock n roll.. Next you quickly pile it into a piping bag and start creating your white mountains of joy! I tried to get some of them very high.. It was pretty fun :)
Don't they just look so fun?! Since this was my first try they all came out very different. Like I always say... practice makes perfect!
Ta-da! Mini adorable Hi-Hat cupcake ready to be dipped.
|I had some of the topping left over so I decided to be creative and just make some "hats" they were very much like a fluffier divinity. YUM! I could eat these all day without the cake :) |
Next to the dipping... I tried to find a good container to dip with and my ice cream dish was the best I could do.. and you know what!? It worked perfect!
Finished Beauties! What do you think? wanna try one?
Some didn't make the cut, I ran out of chocolate so I tried the drizzle method :) Looks cute but they don't keep very well if they aren't dipped.
I know you wanna peek! Here's the inside..I used a butter knife so it's not the cleanest cut.. but you get the idea.
I even Almond-Joyified some of them by adding some coconut. Double Yum.
Wanna bite!? Sorry.. this one's been eaten :) What do you think? Is this recipe a keeper?
