When I first got the awesome book, "Hello, Cupcake", by Karen Tack & Alan Richardson, I saw this idea to make TV Dinner cupcakes. I laughed and was AMAZED at how clever it was, but always thought it looked way too hard to ever pull off.
Until one day I got brave and decided to try it.
And I am here to tell you that it is SO SIMPLE!!
Here's what went into the making of this hearty meal (note: I used a few different things than the book):
- Brownie = chocolate cupcake & sprinkles
- Peas & Carrots = green frosting, green jelly-beans, orange Starburst cut in squares
- Mashed Potatoes = white frosting, yellow Starburst, apple jam
- Chicken Drumsticks = cupcake, frosting, doughnut hole, crushed Corn Flakes, white chocolate shaped like a bone.
All placed in a small tin pan.
Perfect to sit down in front of the Tube with and dig in!
