Cute as a button and Zero Calories....Can't get any better then that girls!

A couple summers ago, while on vacation I found the cutest little cupcake in the cutest craft store. I wanted to but the cupcake, but it wasn't for sale. However, they were selling the template you use to create the 3D cupcake. I happily purchase one I was set on makeing my own! The template is by Hot off the Press.

Needless to say, that little ol template has sat tucked away in my craft room, waiting for it's turn to play. And it's turn has come this week! And WOW, I am I glad it did! It was so fun making these little cupcakes! They are actually 2 parts, the little holder and then a full cupcake. The top of the cupcake, folds over so it can be opened and closed, you can fill it with candy or put a gift it in if you are going to share your cupcakes with your friends!

I of course had tro bling out my cupcakes, I used some pearls, some glittery and sparkly gems on the holders. For the "cherry on top" feel, wanted to keep in the same color family, so I decide to use a large pearl brad on a silver base and added a filigree flower backing to give them a little more delicate feeling, maybe a little shabby chic...
