Those of you who saw my Facebook status yesterday know that I was baking and crafting on Friday. (Thank you for the tips to not mix up the glitter with the sprinkles, or the glue for shortening) 🙂
I wanted to make Halloween cupcakes, but wanted to make them a little special. So I got out my Cricut Cupcake Wrappers cartridge and created some cupcake wrappers.
Simple black paper, and then the background paper is a deep purple with a gold crackle finish. I added some shading with a gold pencil around the cauldrons and drew in some lines on the end of the broom. The finishing touch . . . a little gold bat from the K Andrew Fall-O-Oween Stamp Set.
Normally I just grab a knife, spread some frosting on the cupcakes and call it a day, but these cupcake wrappers were too cute to put on plain old cupcakes, so I decided to try piping the frosting into the cute little swirls like you see on all of the “fancy” cupcakes.
Not bad for my first time trying the “fancy” frosting. I placed the front cupcakes so that you could see all of the sides of the cupcake wrappers.
