This was for Jenn's Dare to get Dirty Challenge http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showpost.php?p=10548221&postcount=3 Seeing the inspiration piece made me have to have cupcakes...or maybe that has something to do with the fact that I am 8 months pregnant. In any case, I had to try a few things out to combine my stamping and new cake decorating skills.
The wrap was done using my Cricut and the Accent Essentials Cartridge. I really like the flourishes, but if I ever make a cupcake wrap again, it will not be such a detailed design. Then I frosted the cupcake and used my Priceless flourish to make an impression in the frosting. I went over the impression with black icing.....don't ever use black icing if you don't have to, it is messy and tastes gross, and stains, but I was committed to this project and wanted to do it right, so I suffered for my passion.
Here are a few additional photo's for you.
This is the wrap I designed using my Cricut Design Studio Software.
This is the wrap on the cupcake tied on with Certain Celery grosgrain ribbon.
Here is the finished project. I should have been a little more patient and let the frosting set up just a bit more before stamping the impression into it, but it was getting late and I have spent 2 days on this project so I was getting anxious to finish up.
