Pirate stuff....

Here is the pirate cupcake I had mentioned in the previous post. I've made 5 of the parrots so far....and only 2 cupcakes. Orginally I was just going to put the parrot onto the cupcakes.... but then I had to go and make the parrots into pirates. I can never leave well enough alone~
I have the pirate parrot sitting on white "frosting" and a black cupcake "paper." I made the head scarf out of felt.... which I then made a pattern out of to create identical head scarfs for the bazillion parrots I will be making. The parrots gold earring is one of those gold wedding rings you pick up in the wedding section at the hobby stores. Here is the back of the parrot, its tail feathers hanging down the back of the cupcake...Eeeeeeeeeeeeeek....I think I hear a cat approaching...Here is a pirate banner to add to my collection of pirate banners.... I've got the "fixings" to make 2 more just like this one :-) I think I am going to stencil the same thing on the backside of this banner... one of these days!

You crack me up! I must confess, I've been sort of anti-pirate myself ever since September 19 became dubbed "Talk Like a Pirate Day" -- it's my birthday, you see. But I'm trying to get over my prejudice! Your cupcakes are adorable!
