The Birthday Party Project #3

It’s fairy floss that make the cute little “Bunny Tails” on these mini cup cakes.  This isn’t a recipe so much as the cup cake is a gluten-free packet I found at Maxi supermarkets.  Why is that gluten-free cake mixes can be made additive free, but not regular ones?  The fairy floss is from Allergy Train and the “Bunny Tails” are put together with a little dark cooking chocolate.  The fairy floss disintegrated over night and the cup cakes were a little bit harder around the edges the next day, so these are best made on the day you want to eat them.  This is Oscar’s favourite recipe so far – he also helped with the clean up!

The cup cakes can be made one day in advance, but the fairy floss should be attached as close as possible to serving time.
