Ingredients

  • Store bought cupcake or pound cake

  • Store bought buttercream frosting

  • Strawberry ice cream sauce

  • Chocolate malt balls

  • Blanched walnuts or almonds

  • Coconut

  • Green sprinkles

  • White chocolate chips

  • Lady fingers

Directions

Place a half of cupcakes(top or bottom) or a half a slice of pound cake in the center of a plate. Spoon the buttercream frosting into a decorating tube fitted with a large, circular tip and pipe it in a looping fashion around the sides of the biscuit or cake- do not frost the top. Spoon strawberry ice cream sauce on top of the muffin or cake to cover. Drizzle a little over portions of the spaghetti as well. For the meatballs, use a butter knife to rough up the surface of two or three chocolate covered malt balls. Place them on top of the "sauce". For the Parmesan cheese, crush a handful of blanched almonds or walnuts in a blender and then sprinkle the pieces over the sauce and "meatballs". For the garlic bread, toast some coconut (for garlic) in a shallow baking pan at 350°F, stirring often, for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden. For butter, melt 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips in a double boiler or heat in a microwave for about 1.5 minutes at half power and stir until smooth. Spread the melted white chocolate on the toasted lady fingers. Top with toasted coconut and green sprinkles for parsley.
