Hell! They've been fiddly!
Especially this bit: I tried stitching the bottoms on with sewing machine at first. It took about 30 minutes and much swearing! Any tips here would be gratefully received.
I wanted my cupcake to be quite realistic in shape, ie the case to be wider at the top than the base, not to look like a chopped off toilet roll tube!
Then there was the size of the cake part: I didn't want it overflowing like a large American muffin. (Not that there is anything wrong with American muffins, but this is a British fairy cake or bun. Small but perfectly formed.)
Next came the best part. Oh, the excitement! What trimmings should I use? Buttons or sequins, beads or ribbon, rickrack or lace? Should they look realistic or just fluffy and over the top?
It's no good. I can't wait any longer. I've got to show you them NOW.
I feel ridiculously happy with them.
And they're completely CALORIE FREE! WHOOHOO!!!
Remember yesterdays utterly gorgeous glass cake dome? Looking a little sad and empty?
Here it is today modeling this seasons latest in cupcakes.
Aaaah. I'm all cupcaked out now.
All smiley and happy!
