I was able to make cupcakes for a baby shower a few weeks ago - happy day! I have seen so many cute cupcakes out there - aren't cupcakes all the rage right now?? - and I've been wanting an excuse to make some. The theme for the shower was pink and flowers, so I made plain cupcakes topped with flowers made out of Gum Paste. I had never used gum paste before, but it was kind of like fondant except that it dried hard. I used the tutorial over at the Make It And Love It CAke Series (love that series - makes me feel like I can actually tackle cake-decorating).
She hung them around the entryway to the room - super cute.
candy wrappers so you can put them to good use..... (do you think the kids get annoyed when I say "don't rip it open - bring it here so I can cut it for a nice edge" - I'm sure they just think I'm crazy....)
