Honestly, I'm not sure I'll ever get tired of the trend of making sweet snacks smaller and plopping them on a stick. Anything that keeps my hands from getting sticky and my hips from getting fat has to be a good thing.
Do you ever get a little upset that gingerbread is so hard to chew and doesn't have any alcohol in it? C'mon, admit it, during the holidays with the family sometimes you just need to get a little buzz on to survive. This buzz is festive, holiday appropriate and best of all, really pretty to look at. Thank goodness the good people at the Jelly Shot Test Kitchen are around to give us creative jiggly ideas. No shame, down the hatch!
These cookies are cute, but wouldn't it be even better if that moon was a pinata and the shuttles were bottle rockets that you shoot at the moon to try to get all the candy out? Sure the candy might get a little singed but who doesn't love a little fire?
The killer here, the detail that puts it all over the top and makes even me, who is not a Disney fan, say AWWWWW is the little white circles on the cupcake bases. Just like Mickey's pants buttons! It's tiny touches like this that make me love love love my job every day.
So I know sometimes we all say something is too cute to eat, but honestly, do we mean it? No. At least I know I don't. But these, honestly, for reals, are just way way too cute to eat. I would like to find a way to dry and varnish them so they never ever change.
