What I made today

January 3rd, 2010 by Andreanna

Since it is Sunday and nothing to do it is the perfect day to craft. Usually I am kinda lazy on Sundays and just lay around. This week with the new year I seem to have a urge to work a lot. I have been expanding my line and that really makes me feel revitalized.

My fingers look fat in this picture ahhh!! OK end of girly freak out.

So I have been wanting to make some new cuppycakes for the longest time. Problem is I have made polymer clay ones before and sure they are fun but they just don’t look real enough. I am not a fan of exact realism but I think the more real I can get my cuppycakes while still staying fun looking the better. …And I like fancy twirly icing.

Last week I sent the husband to hardware store which is on the outskirts of town and the bus stops about 10 minutes away from. Yes I am a meany and made him go out there. He picked up my needed supplies and now that I have them all I can finally make my cupcakes of ultimate awesomeness.

I had to figure out how to make the base for myself and then I was ready to ice them and decorate.  I will never be a cake, cupcake, or other baked goods decorator.  After icing all of these my hand is crampy. I am pretty sure I am doing it a bit wrong but oh well I still made some super cute cuppycakes.

My favorite is the one with the blue bunny! I am so proud of me.  I will be listing them in the shop too. If you have read all this and want one but are short on cash why not try to win one?

    Aww, I love them! I love the wrappers too, are they real cupcake liners?

    Landon’s standing over my shoulder shouting “CAKE!” so I guess he approves. ;)

    You mean these aren’t made with polymer clay?? What hardware store stuff did you use? They do look so realistic! And delicious…but I won’t try to eat one I promise. :P
