So…I meant to post this for Labor Day weekend, but got behind with the whole Food-Network-In-My-Kitchen incident.
But here’s a holiday (or any day) dessert that’s super easy and totally freakin’ cute. It’s a semi-homemade masterpiece (my apologies to those of you who don’t do cake mix — I don’t like to labor on Labor Day.)
You can definitely make these in regular cupcake pans, but I prefer to bake them in these little glass votives so they look like mini-root beer floats. Shot glasses are adorable too. I think I bought 32 votives at Wal-Mart for like $8. Here’s the thing though…you have to heed the directions and bake at 325 degrees, okay? Glass is typically safe up to 350, but I wasn’t taking a chance — my votives are pretty thin. If you’re nervous, bake one test cupcake first. We don’t want any glass cracking to happen because that would require…you guessed it…labor.
