of the giant cupcake cake!
I've been slowly adding clothing in my Etsy shop and I am planning to make some birthday shirts for bigger kids (up to 5T for now). So I had to practice, right? (More will be available soon, for boys and girls!) Wow, did the cupcake theme go over well in this house. It's still going.
In case you're interested in making this giant cupcake cake for your own little sweets, I used a Wilton pan and followed these directions from Oh, Sugar! to make the candy cupcake liner. Yes, all the other little sweetses who came to the birthday party, that is indeed pink candy. Super easy to make and in my humble opinion, the cupcake liner turned out MUCH better than if I'd tried to frost that part.
Oh, and the "confetti" was royal icing that I piped in big blobs on waxed paper. I put them on the cake upside-down so the smooth part (the part that was touching the waxed paper) would show. Very easy and very cute!
