Being in charge of our monthly work (night shift) birthday parties, I have way too much fun making up the food themes and cooking. This month was no exception. The theme I foisted upon my fellow coworkers for February was "White Trash/Trailer Park" where we feasted on Pigs-in-a-Blanket, Sloppy Joes, Cheese-in-a-Can, and junk food like these mock-Hostess-cupcakes. Okay, junk food that's good for you. Okay, junk food that's not chemical-laden and bad for you. Yeah, I can live with that definition for these.
Well worth every minute it takes to make them from scratch, they're also simple to decorate even for a novice decorator armed with a pastry bag and two basic tips. They're even more fun to eat. Of course!
There are three parts: The Cupcake, The Filling, and The Chocolate Frosting
