Cupcake Project

I have recently had some really exciting opportunities.
One of them was being asked to make some cupcakes.  This is what I ended up with!

I made my best cupcake recipe, best frosting and toped it with a white chocolate snowflake.
I made the snowflakes the same way I made my turkey feet and chocolate hearts, on parchment.

Then I put them in these cutest little stands.  They are kind of a combination of an apothecary jar and a mini cake stand.  I'm in love with them.  They would work with any food, but afterward, you can put any adorable decor in it and put it on your shelf.  A simple Christmas ornament would be perfect.

To top it off, I added some cute ribbon, tied in a simple bow.

And there you have more than a simple cupcake.
You have something to get really excited about taking home.

I also needed to find a way to deliver 18 cupcakes.  Carrying in 18 stands to one person might be cumbersome, so I found these adorable blue cupcake boxes online.

And the deal is sealed with some more cute peppermint ribbon.

Doing this project has confirmed that:
I love blue and red together.
I love making and decorating cupcakes.
I can't get enough of cute glass jars.
