mike and ike cupcakes

The Cheerios have a thing for these old time movie concession candies:

They're so bright and colourful (like the Cheerios) Saucy had to make a cupcake for them to enjoy, just because it's Friday.

Piping the buttercream in giant puffs was quick and easy. Sparkling crystals in orange, blue and green added the extra shot of colour. And sugar.

Everything was nestled upon vanilla confetti cupcakes, prompting the girls to ask, "did you put Mike & Ike's IN the cupcake?" Even Saucy thinks that would have been over the top.

Saucy is progressing on the overhaul of the Pink Prom Gown Project of 2010. One layer of white organza has been sewn by hand over the entire dress, gathered at the top of the bodice and sewn down at the zipper seam. Saucy left the selvedge end of the fabric unfinished, because that's sort of the look she's going for... the deconstructed look.

This weekend, it will be fit to Loopy and work on the skirt will begin. Stay tuned... this is about to get fun.

Those cupcakes are great-- love the colors! Those cheerios are such lucky girls to have someone that does such special things for them.
So far, I'm totally lovin' the dress. Can't wait to see more!!

I remember getting Mike and Ikes as prizes during the magazine campaign at our school.. the staff always made sure that they had a box they slipped a ticket into that had a prize for one of those little pompom guys to "win" as well.
