This is the perfect time for cupcakes, but then I think you can have cupcakes just about any time. They're small, cute, and so great to give as gifts and people just love cupcakes. So I got the notion to check around with some bakers and see what unique cupcakes they've come up with. What did I find? I found some really interesting cupcakes, ones that would make great copycat models for my candles. So I picked my favorite unique bakery cupcake, and I began to work on its candle duplication. That candle duplication challenge would be (drum roll please) buttermilk pancakes. 


Maple Pecan  Cupcakes With Buttermilk Pancakes

I knew this was going to be a challenging task. The cupcake candle that the Moon Blush Baker completed was really fluffy, gorgeous, and I'd never seen anything like it. But I thought, 'It's a cupcake, right?' I mean, no need in being intimidated by a little cupcake. So I started my copycat venture. Honestly, that little cupcake (that I probably should mention I made jumbo) was done at least three times before I was actually pleased with the design.

My icing was going to be similar, but because my pancakes were not real, I could not get the fluffiness of real pancakes. Once I got the icing intact, I put my mini pancakes on top.  My candle was not complete without butter and maple drizzles.


Size and fluffiness being different from its model, I have to tell you that this jumbo pancakes and maple cupcake smells some kind of fabulous. It's designed to burn down like a pillar candle and will not melt all over the place. This copycat fake food is now in my shop and ready for the world! After all, dessert is better burned.
