I had such a fun Mother's Day weekend. Gerhardt and I went to Leavenworth, which is the inspiration for my "Life in Icicle Falls" series. In addition to meeting readers and signing books, we had some girl time on Saturday afternoon and made these darling high heel cupcakes that my daughter found and displayed on her Facebook page. I tried to find the original source for this recipe but it's all over the Internet and I'm not sure who originally came up with the idea. In fact, you can see a lot more complex and fancy versions if you poke around. I just love the idea and think these are perfect for a b
This is such a simple yet adorable recipe. All you need is cupcakes (make your favorite flavor!), Milano cookies, Pepperidge Farm Pirouette rolled wafers, and frosting. As you can probably see we had some frosting issues. This was because we were traveling and my daughter had to buy canned frosting. Best bet is to make your own frosting and make it thick and sturdy enough to hold up your cookies. (Actually for my glue, I would use royal icing and then ice the cupcake with butter cream frosting). To assemble, cut off the rolled wafer to the desired heel length. Put frosting on each end. One to anchor it and the other to glue it to the cookie. Stick your cookie into the cupcake at a slight angle and then balance and glue it onto the rolled wafer "heel". Then secure your heel to your cake plate. One assembled decorate with frosting.
