More Cupcakes!

I love cupcakes.

Today I bought the adorable holder box, pink die stuff for the icing and a new tip for the piping bag that makes it have ridges. I'm a total dork so I decided to taste the straight die! Don't do that. Just trust me. Turns out a little goes a loooooooooong way. So having learned that by dieing my teeth and tounge BRIGHT pink I only put a touch of die in my batch of white icing and it was perfect bright fun pink. This cool box is awesome. I'm shipping these to a friend. I don't know how they will turn out after the PO gets a hold of them but I'll let you know.
Being silly and trying a different type of icing job.
Here's the card I made to go with them.
close up:
Truck and dogs are SU, (Loads of love and Loads of Love accessories) The cupcake is from a Michael's dollar stamp, I had to rip it off the block and cut off the "happy birthday" part but that's fine, now it's TWO stamps. I colored with copic and prismacolor markers. I drew in the motion lines on the truck wheels and the falling cupcakes. I also did up the envelope for fun. AND I put stickles on the flames and icing. Finally a bit of fun ribbon.
Still loving these single layer cards.
Still on cloud nine about Eat Cake.

Just read your blog, I'm a regular. I had to e-mail Holly at Eat Cake. She's a friend of mine and I had to find out she had new stamps available by reading it on your blog! I love what you do with her stamps! Too cute! Jenn, Hollister, CA
