The Flying Wedge of Sugar.

They need to make mini Peeps.

I love the rainbow cupcakes. Were they fun to make?

Erin said...

Have you tried Peeps on a Sweet Potato yet? LOLOLOL!

Dani said...

Erin, I'm glad I'm not the only one. lol

Shamy, we loved making the rainbow cupcakes!! Perfect foodie fun for the kiddies.

Dani said...

Erin, hahhahahaha!!!! They need to make Thanksgiving Peeps.

We love peeps...especially after they sit in the cupboard for a couple of weeks

Making Space said...

Those look amazingly adorable! Love the rainbow cupcakes, I keep seeing them on the interwebs and I'm a'skeered to try 'em, they look like a ton o' work. Clearly in this case they paid off. I never knew Peeps could actually be cute. Nice work!

Lovely job, Dani! Have the kiddies come down off their sugar high yet? Happy DSS!

Eggy

chickory said...

they are cute! little blue birds surfing the white wave. mmmm good. its okay as long as the cupcake is carrot, right?

chickory said...

you know, a peeps spray painted to look like turkeys is a perfect idea for thanksgiving!

Sandcastle Momma said...

Peeps are always so cute I feel guilty about eating them but on top of those cupcakes they wouldn't last any time LOL

Darla said...

Really cute here!

LaDivaCucina said...

Very pretty!

moi said...

LOOK at that gleaming shiny icing! I needs me that recipe. Before my dentist tapes my mouth shut for anything except vegetables.

Buzz Kill said...

Cupcakes can never have too much sugar. That's why the body invented the diabetic comas - to let you know when you've gone a peep too far.

I'm kind of going this route with my peep experimentation. We'll see how it comes out.

Erin said...

You all are cracking me up! do you know I have never even tasted a Peep or even bought one? I didn't even know what they were until a couple of years ago. Maybe I should come of of the Peep closet, or Peep Out! Am I the only one who thinks they look kind of gross? Maybe it's because I only like chocolate and nothing else, I even scrape frosting off cake. But I do love me some chocolate bunnies!!

Dani said...

Erin, I'll let you off easy since you like chocolate bunnies at least.lol

Do you eat the ears first?

Go over to Making Space to have a good laugh for the day.

ThreeC, I like my cookies like that. :)

MS, it was super easy. We did a box cake(gasp)and just split the batter and added food coloring. The Sweeties would love them.

Thanks Eggy!! It was a long night...lol

Chickory, you ROCKED that Peep Wreath girlfriend! It was so cute and creepy.

ScMomma, hehehe. You're such a sweetie. :)

Darla, I'm surprised you and the kids haven't done these. It's the perfect way to pass a rainy afternoon.

Thanks Diva. Next time, we're gonna try them with some brighter colored batter.

Buzz, can't wait to see it! You always come up with something good.

Moi, I'm like Erin, I could just feel my teeth hurting from all that sugar!

Boxer said...

and no peeps were injured in the making of these cupcakes.....

Big Shamu said...

...unlike Shamy's Peeps who were dissected with sharp Exacto Blade precision or Chickory's varnished Peeps.

Dani said...

*sniff* *sniff* poor little peeps.

LisaKay said...

The peeps never did much for me but let me alone with those cupcakes!!!!!!!!!

Dani said...

LisaKay, I hear yah cous!!!

Granny Annie said...

I love Peeps! I love to look at them, talk to them, then bite off their heads! LOL

Dani said...

Granny, I'm shocked!!!!!;)

lisaschaos said...

What a cute idea! I love the look of peeps I just don't eat them, lol. But I love them as decoration on the cupcakes. Fun idea!
