Cake Pedestal

I bought this glass covered cake pedestal recently. I was thisclose to passing it up because I didn't like the color... duh---- Really?
At least I can honestly say, I make myself laugh... duh....  Anywho---
once it was spray painted a lovely shade of baby blue I white washed it a little to get rid of the garishly new looking paint job. Now, it is much more to my liking! No one wants an empty cake pedestal sitting around now do they? I wanted to fill it of course with something yummy immediately!  But... if I made real cupcakes, it would quickly be empty once again and it would be a vicious, albeit yummy cycle. So I opted to make some fake cupcakes instead!
 Oh so dietetic.... and the cuteness is never ending~
I have seen fake cupcakes decorated very elaborately with piped edges and frosting flowers... I am thinking about taking a refresher course on cake decorating.... I remember you HAVE to bring in real cupcakes and REAL frosting every week to practice your designs. *sigh* Oh the things we do for our art. *wink* Tutorial on how to make the cupcakes is coming soon-- stay tuned!
big hugs,

Happy Pink Saturday, Cheryl. I am so glad you joined us today.

That cake plate was too great to leave behind. I do believe those cupcakes would make me want a real one even more. hahaha

Hi, Cheryl!

I love the fake cupcakes! How did yo make them? I too would prefer the fake ones over the real ones right now, as I ate way too many gingerbread cupcakes over the holidays. :)

Happy Pink Saturday!
