I made this "cake" for my son's 12th birthday. He thought it looked so cool. No one really ate any of it because they couldn't get past how much it really looked like spaghetti.
I got the idea from the book Hello Cupcake, it is really one of the best, cutest, easiest cupcake book ever and they just put out a new one that I need to get.
It's just about 15 cupcakes, they are iced with a thin layer of icing and then placed touching on a plate. Then you put your icing in a Ziplock bag and cut a very small piece of the corner and start swirling over the whole plate. At first, I didn't think that it would turn out, but then it started to really look like spaghetti! The "meatballs" are Candy House chocolate truffles. The "sauce" is strawberry jam.
Even though no one ate it---even my husband----it was really good.
