Meat Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Frosting

I have a sweet tooth. Or perhaps sweet teeth is more apt.

I like chocolate and cake and candy and ice cream and all things sweet.

I have never understood people that don't have a sweet tooth.

Which brings me to my brother. Who always passes on dessert. Doesn't matter what kind. 

So for a milestone birthday, one has to be creative.

Hence a meat dessert.

That has an air of celebration about it.

Bake your favorite meatloaf or meatball recipe in individual portions in a cupcake tin (skip the liner, it will just get greasy). Bake, remove from pan and set them to cool on a wire rack.

Place on a pretty plate, platter or cake stand.

Whip up your favorite mashed potatoes and scoop into a piping bag (once they are cool enough to handle or use a kitchen towel to hold the piping bag).

Frost (realizing that it would have been wise to whip out all the lumps ahead of time).

Sprinkle/push in diced colorful bell peppers and thinly sliced scallions into the mashed potato frosting (in lieu of chocolate sprinkles).

Top with candles.

Light and sing Happy Birthday!


  1. I've said it before and I'll say it again. You are a genius.

    1. I can't take credit for the idea (just execution) as I researched 'meat desserts' and there are quite a lot of fun ideas out there!
