Has anyone been watching the new show on TLC called DC Cupcakes? Or the cupcake challenges on Food Network? K and I are completely hooked on both of them and think it would be so cool to own our own bakery....a lot of work, yes but so, so cool. If I could I would open one in a second....or maybe Sophie and Katherine are looking to add to their staff and we can move to DC and work for them. I know, wishful thinking! It's not so much the eating of the cupcakes that would make me happy but the decorating and making them works of art. K said she'd take care of the eating part. :)
I was surfing around last night and look at how pretty these are...
They really are works of art and I seriously would have a hard time biting into one of them!
So since I won't be opening my own bakery or working in one anytime in the near future I thought I'd whip up some pretty paper cupcakes instead. Not nearly as pretty as the ones above but I did have fun making them.
I made a sheet of embellishments (they will be listed in my Etsy shop today) along with a coordinating card. I used the cupcake image from Papertrey Ink's Baby Button Bits and did a little papar piecing with the DeLovely collection from Cosmo Cricket. For my roses I used Raspberry Fizz felt and for the stems Martha Stewarts rose leaf punch.
I'm on a cupcake kick lately so I'll be sharing more of these soon! Have a wonderful day and thanks a ton for stopping by!
