Spaghetti and meatballs cupcakes recipe

These cute cupcakes are going to be your April Fools' prank that will leave the whole family with a giant smile on their faces. They look just like spaghetti and meatballs but these are vanilla cupcakes, iced and topped with jam and a Lindt ball.




Step 1. Prepare the cupcakes and leave to cool.

Step 2. When cooled, prepare the icing and fill an icing bag with a very skinny straight tip.

Step 3. Pipe the icing over each cupcake to resemble spaghetti.

Step 4. Place jam in a bowl and stir it well until it has a runny consistency. Dip a Lindt ball into the jam and place on each cupcake. Drizzle a little extra jam over the Lindt ball chocolates to look like spaghetti sauce.

  • Don’t be tempted to heat that jam. It will melt the icing and create a kitchen disaster.
  • You can use Ferrero Rocher chocolates instead of Lindt balls.
