Zero calorie cupcakes

Now you can have your cake and ......... well, actually, you can't eat these ones!

A couple of weeks ago, a friend and I attended a fabric cup cake making class. We liked the idea of these, and thought they may be an interesting and enjoyable project for our younger Textiles students. They are quick to make, and reasonably easy to 'ice', although I managed to get myself in a bit of a mess! They use silicone cupcake moulds and beads, buttons or ribbon for icing decorations. The ideas are only limited by your imagination!

Could this be a new weight loss fad, do you think?

For those who want to try these cupcakes - the lady whose workshop I attended said to use Selley's 'No More Gaps'for the icing - she claimed it was more successful than other brands. You then add a very small amount of cornflour (about 1/8th teaspoon) and food colouring as desired. Happy icing!
