I was asked to make some cupcakes to be auctioned off at my friends charity event. I ended up only having about 2 hours decide what to make, bake, decorate and package. I was bummed of course because I wanted to go all out. I wanted to head to Michaels to pick up some Martha Stewart cupcake boxes but I had no time so I had to improvise.
Then I added some Amy Butler scrapbook paper to the bottom of the box.
If I would have had more time I would have lined the sides of the box as well!
Then I baked some Red Velvet cupcakes and made a white chocolate and cream cheese frosting and rolled the sides in some chocolate sprinkles.
Then I wrapped a pretty polka dot ribbon around it and made a tag from the Amy butler paper and voila! Not quite as polished as a pretty storebought box but in a pinch it did the trick!
The winning bid was $300! I hope they tasted good. LOL!
Isn't this pretty pincushion adorable!
I won it from Laurie Taylor over at the wooden spool! Go check her out she makes the most adorable things!
Quick update on my my new sewing machine. I have been working on a new purse design and I was getting a little (actually a lot) frustrated because the thing kept beeping at me with a broken thread message only my thread was not broken and I could continue sewing. I broke out the manual and turns out I was not threading properly. Whew. So, still going good. I love haveing so many stitch options! I realize this is probably nothing exciting to most of you. Lol! But I have never had this before. This is the stitch I used on the inside pocket of my current project.
More updates to come!
