Taco Cupcakes

Today's national food holiday happens to be my boyfriend Tomas favorite food, which happens to be tacos. Yay for tacos!!!!!!! Tacos are always his first choice when I ask him what he wants for dinner. Therefore to celebrate this day we are having tacos for dinner and as for a special desert we are having taco cupcakes. The flavor of the cupcakes are not taco flavor, that would not have tasted so good, they are just a regular white cake with a taco decoration on top. To make the taco shell I rolled out a caramel square into a round shape. I then rolled it into a taco shell shape and filled it with things that looked like the things you would put in a taco. The taco meat is raisins, the shredded lettuce is coconut that I died green, and the tomatoes are chopped up sour straws. Everyone got a kick out of these at my house and I hope you enjoyed this quirky cupcake as well :)

  1. How did you get the caramel to stiffen up and stay in the tacco shell form. I'm making these for some K-2 graders who's favorite song is about eating cheesy tacco! this is a perfect fit for our end of the year celebration! :)

  2. They kind of just stayed put when I did it. If yours don't stay maybe try some frosting. Hopefully that will help. :)
