Okay, so if you’re a follower of the Live Laugh Love Craft Facebook page, you know that I got my Babycakes cupcake maker yesterday! :) I have been dying to use this thing!!

Isn’t she purdy?? :)

Now, for my first endeavor with my new machine, I didn’t just want to make plain ‘ol cupcakes.. Especially on New Years Eve! I came up with the idea of doing Pop Rocks cupcakes and they turned out SO cute and fun!

Want to know how to make your own? :)

First, bake your cupcakes. Whether it be in an oven or Babycakes cupcake maker.

Cut a hole in the center of your cupcake(s)..
