When ordinary cupcakes won't do...
Big cupcakes topped with little cupcakes are in order! In this case, to celebrate the official end of panty training for The Princess of the Potty. That's a real royal title, in case you're wondering.
You'll need a bag of miniature Reese's peanut butter cups. Discard the foil wrappers, ingest a few to make sure they're fresh, but keep the little brown paper cup on the rest of them. This enhances the teeny-tiny cupcake illusion we're going for.
Try to track down properly scaled sprinkles. For this event, Saucy located rainbow nonpareils and jumbo nonpareils. The right size keeps the illusion in check. For the cherries, Michaels carries Mary Engelbriet Cherry Berries. They're cute and perfect. You can even find larger round red candies in the summer candy bin, if you're lucky:
You see how Saucy did that? She kept it all to scale... oh, and she had brown cupcake papers, so that helped too.
She got busy with her Sharpie markers and went crazy decorating the cupcake box. It was, as she mentioned above, a very special occasion.
Remember how much Saucy lurrves handing out advice... even to unsuspecting two-year-olds that can't read yet.
Ooops, if you fill the box before you photograph the messages on the bottom, be prepared to hold it up at an awkward angle to capture it for the blog.
There's still time to enter the draw for the Flip HD video camera on the post below. Saucy is mailing out the Sweet Summer Cherry Lemonade charm bracelet swap kits today - and it is beautifully warm outside. The winner will be announced next week. Saucy needs to take a little time right now.
Another sweet giveaway is in the works soon, so heads up!
