Well last week was very sad as I said goodbye to my Year 12's as they leave to go and prepare for their exams. I have been very busy the last few weeks preparing for this as well as doing my swaps for Regionals last weekend (will post those soon). During the year as each of my 'tutees' celebrate their birthday's, I bring in a cake or some cupcakes to enjoy the special day with all of the group, so as a reminder for them of the year with me I each made them a cupcake which they can keep (this one cannot be eaten) perhaps on their desks at home. I am so happy with the outcome and I brought them in in my cupcake stand for presentation. The girls loved them and so many people thought they were REAL! :)
I was able to use up a lot of the paper I had leftover from all the wedding stationery but some of my fingers went numb for a day after cutting all the cakes out. But the girls loved them so it was all worth it totally. I saw the idea here and couldn't resist having a go myself. I have topped them off with a pearl from the 'pretties kit'. To make these you need to cut three separate templates - one for the base, one for the inside and one for the top. Thanks for looking.
