Long live Hostess, with a copcycat cupcake recipe and wedding cake ideas
Have you heard? Hostess is closing, but their sweet inspirations will live long in our hearts. In fact, we recently saw an eBay auction for 20 boxes of Hostess Cupcakes and Twinkies that sold for $7,500! That's probably a little out of most of our budgets, but you can try a Little Debbie version of a tiered cake by stacking Swiss Cake Rolls, Nutty Bars and Oatmeal Cream Pies. This larger-than-life Hostess groom's cake (above) has us eager with anticipation for wedding season to arrive.
DIY-ers have come to the rescue by offering their own versions
of the Hostess Cupcake recipe. Cover the cupcakes with chocolate ganache, fill with whipped topping and pipe on the familiar icing curl for a cupcake that could fool most any Hostess Cupcake lover.
