Cupcakes!

I have cupcakes on the brain lately.  This is all thanks to Pinterest and the million of yummy cupcakes they have ALL OVER every one's pins.  I am not a baker by any means, but I like to play around with yummy recipes every now and then.  What I am mostly looking for is a good frosting recipe.  I hate frostings that are overly sweet, which is the kind my mother has always made.  I am always on the look out for a new recipe, so I have been making my share of cupcakes lately.  Trust me, my family doesn't mind!  Besides, I was also intrigued by how their frosting always looked SO perfect and pulled out a Pampered Chef pastry tool I have never used and HEY, what do you know, half way decent looking cupcakes.  Now, they aren't as perfect as the pictures, but they look much better then when you use the Betty Crocker frosting and a butter knife!

Why all this talk of cupcakes.  Well, for two reasons.  First my baby, my first born is going to be 16 next week.  I don't know how that happened!  It was definitely just yesterday that I was pushing her around in her stroller waiting for her to crawl, walk and accomplish all those other baby milestones.  I swear, I blinked and she is almost 16!  We are going to have a small family party for her birthday and I want to make it special so I have been working on the right combination of decorations and food!  Cupcakes are going to be one of the items on the menu.  But, what if someone wants to take a cupcake home with them.  Well, this is what I am sharing with you today, a cupcake box.  I think cupcake boxes are such a great idea!  Why, because no more eating half squished frostingless cupcakes that you bring home from a party.  Now you can eat the real deal and have it look and taste yummy!



Materials I Used on My Project:
Elisabeth Bell Polly Picnic Stamp
Copic Markers ( see the complete list of colors HERE)
EK Success Border Punch
Glossy Accents
Recollections embellishments

I wanted to make sure my cupcake doesn't slide around in my box, so I even made the insert the keep the cupcake in place like they do in the REAL cupcake boxes.


Well, that's my 3D fun for the day!  I'm excited over the way it came out and hope to try and make a few for my daughter's party.  We shall see, my ideas are always bigger then the time I have available!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
