Cupcake Obsession

A sucker for a cute cupcake. Yeah, that's me. I have difficulty resisting a cupcake topped with gobs of sweet frosting. Thank goodness my passion for cupcakes have temporarily turned to the inedible kind. My hips thank me too.

I've had way too much fun making these glittered cupcakes. Glitter is now showing up in the most unlikely of places. My cat, Mouse, is now sporting a sparkling fur coat. Poor baby. He's spent way too much time sitting next to me while I happily "sugared" the tops of some of these cupcakes.

I plan to use these ornaments on my Christmas tree. I've attached a clear fishing line hanger (which I've tucked under the base of each cupcake for picture taking purposes) on each cupcake to enable it to hang.

Okay. Warning. Take heed. If you hate cupcakes, it's time to turn away now.

Oodles and oodles of sparkly cupcakes....
















Looking back, I guess I have always been a bit cupcake obsessed. Remember these of yesteryear?

A fabric yo-yo cupcake topped with a sweet posie.


Birthday cupcake complete with a candle.


A tiny cupcake on a stick.


A cupcake wrist pincushion.


It is time to pack these cupcakes away until the next attack of cupcake obsession rolls around.

Hope you have a sweet weekend!

Aloha!
