Hi All,

I couldn't believe I saw this on the news the other night. There's a "bakery" in Chicago that charges $8 apiece for a regular-sized meatloaf cupcake frosted with mashed potatoes!! So, as a joke, (and because I was dying to pipe something and had no legitimate reason to make a cake icon_wink.gif ) I made them for dinner tonight. My husband said that they were delicious, but he'd never pay $8 for one. Apparently, though, this new business is thriving. Maybe the economy isn't as bad as they say icon_confused.gif

The attached photo is of mine, not the professional ones. I left the skin on the potatoes for nutrients and used shredded carrot for color on top.

Here's their website:

I just had to follow the link you provided....and...I lost my appetite! That's look so....ucky. Did you by chance click on the PARTY TIME TAB? Planning a birthday bash....I don't think so! My kids shriek and their friends would not let them live it down.

I do however love their creativity and originality, I wish them the greatest of success!

Wow yours look so delicious! I make meatloaf muffins all the time but I never thought to pipe on mashed potatoes for "icing"

Good thinking!

I made my son a meatloaf and mashed potato 9 inch round "cake" for his second birthday dinner. I decorated the border with peas. Martha Stewart made it 3 years ago, thats where I got the idea.

That is so disgusting...I hate meatloaf, though, so maybe I'm not the best judge!
