Ingredients
  • 1 package Orange Hostess Cupcakes
  • 1 can white cupcake icing (with decorating attachments)
  • 1 package Ferrero Rocher hazelnut chocolates
  • 1 container strawberry jelly
  • 1 chunk white chocolate
Instructions
  1. Unwrap your cupcakes and discard the small cardboard square from the bottom.  If any orange icing is hanging over the edge of cupcake, you can gently remove some of it so it does not show on your finished product.

  2. Prepare your frosting can by attaching the small circle decorating tip.

  3. Begin assembling by piping a pile of 'spaghetti' all over the top of your cupcake.

  4. Add a hazelnut chocolate 'meatball' on top of the soft frosting.

  5. Next, carefully spoon or squeeze some jelly 'sauce' right on top of the meatball.

  6. Now grate some white chocolate 'cheese' over the whole top of the cupcake.

  7. Repeat the process for all the cupcakes and allow them to set. 

  8. The icing will be soft for a while, especially in warm weather. 

  9. You can pop them in the refrigerator for a few minutes to speed up the setting process, but don't leave them in too long or the cupcakes will get hard and chewy.

  10. Enjoy!
