This was just so cute, and was really perfect as a dessert to a grilled lunch at the beach. Sometimes these fancy decorated cupcakes scare me away because I think they will be too time consuming. This one was pretty easy and didn't take too much skill. The decorations probably took about the same amount of time as it would have to have just spread frosting.
This recipe comes from Spoonful.
-1 box brownie mix + eggs and oil called for on the box
-Fruit slice candy to make the kebobs shapes
-Mike and Ikes (or hot tamales) to make the hot dog shapes
|Cut the fruit slices into about 5 pieces.|
|Thread the on a toothpick.|
|I just used a gel tube of black frosting to make 3 or 4 lines on|
|Top with a candy kebob.|
|Use a red candy to for the hot dogs.|
I used a toothpick to take a bit of the black gel frosting and
spread on the top so the hot dogs had grill marks.
Everyone who ate these enjoyed them and thought they were cute. They were something that looked like a lot of work and planning, but weren't really that hard to make.
