Share To:

martha hi hat cupcakesDo I need to explain why I chose to feature these Hi-Hat Cupcakes by Martha Stewart for Cupcake Monday today? I mean, just look at them. WOW! They look amazing! Has anyone ever attempted these? From the comments on Martha’s site they aren’t the easiest to accomplish, but I think it’s worth a try!

Get the recipe here!

Have a sweet week, friends!

    I have seen these many times and have ALWAYS wanted to try them, so I think this weekend I will!

      Let me know how they turn out! They look so delicious!!

        I watched the video and I think that will be VERY helpful to insure success. The only thing that obviously seems like the tricky part is the dipping in the chocolate part, I mean how on earch does the icing part stay on there? I know you need to refrigerate them but it just seems like the top part would pop right off after it is dipped in the chocolate and you are pulling it up. Now I am very intrigued and will take this on as a personal challenge!

          For some reason, “Seven Minute Icing” has been my Kryptonite, so I am hoping I finally can overcome my fear of this and master it once and for all!! I feel totally confident making pie dough from scratch, tarts, elaborate dinner parties…but oh, me and Seven Minute Icing are going to tangle!!

  2. I bake cupcakes all the time and I am only unsuccesful when I try a Martha recipe 🙁 But her ideas are always soo tempting so I may have to give these a try…
    Happy Monday!

  3. These look SO yummy! I need to try this out soon. Thanks!

    I’m not a big frosting fan (and these look to have more frosting than cake), but I wonder if it would work to put soft ice cream on top and dip that in chocolate like a chocolate dip cone….

    • I don’t like frosting either. I usually scrape it off … too sweet & sugary. If I remember correctly, the white part was more like marshmallow & the chocolate dipping “frosting” is basically just melted chocolate so should be able to use any kind of chocolate you like … semi-sweet, dark, bitter, etc.

  5. I made these a couple years ago & they were outstanding!! A lot of work because of all the steps, but very yummy. I wouldn’t make them again just for kicks, but definitely for something special like a party, birthday, etc.


    And just as an FYI to some of the other ladies out there, if you are struggling with MS cupcake recipes, try them again. I always have great results & lots of compliments when I use her recipes. I’ve had people request that I make certain MS cupcake recipes for their bday or other special events cause her cupcakes become some of their/our favorite desserts.

    I followed the Martha Stewart recipe. They were actually easy to make. They make quite the statement. Dont be afraid. Just go for it!!!

  7. I love the look of these but have never tried them before. It always seems like a science experiment that gravity would ruin for me! 🙂 I’m sure one of these days I’ll get around to giving them a try, though!

    I made these last year for my daughter’s Valentine Party at school – I did mini cupcakes on a stick and made the frosting inside pink. They were fabulous – perhaps wasted on Kindergarten children but I loved them. I have had great success with MS recipes in general. I just make sure I’ve read each one a dozen times before starting. I think these were pretty easy – the frosting is so thick it doesn’t even budge when dipping it in the chocolate. I covered them with sprinkles while the chocolate was still wet. I’m getting so excited about them again, I may just have to try them on preschoolers, 1st, 2nd and 4th graders this year. 🙂

    I made these a few months ago. They turned out amazing and weren’t too difficult. Definitely worth trying. I also have a very similar recipe with a peanut butter frosting instead of the marshmallow and am dying to try them.

    Made these today, loved them! They don’t look as great as yours but for my first time I was happy.
