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.
