Unity Cupcake Picks
We are getting ready to leave for Wednesday night church, and tonight Cameron and Katy will be celebrating the birthday of their Wednesday night childcare worker, Ms. Tiffany. :) Her actual birthday is this Friday, but Cameron couldn't pass up the opportunity to make some cupcakes. He's been saying "Birthday cake" again and again.... Anyway, we made Funfetti cupcakes (Ms. Tiffany's favorite) and I made these cute little picks to top them. I used the cupcakes from Unity's Cupcakes A La Yummy (By the way, LOTS of NEW Unity stamps will be in the Limelight this Friday!!) on scalloped circles. I paper pieced the cupcake liners with Sprinkles from Basic Grey's Two Scoops line and quickly chalked the frosting using Pebbles, Inc. Pearlescent Chalks. Love that shimmer! I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch holes around the scallops. Each cupcake is embellished with Stickles. Finally, I layered onto Taken with Teal or Pixie Pink cardstock, taped on a toothpick, and VOILA! Cute cupcakes! :) Cupcakes on cupcakes... CUPCAKE OVERLOAD! But I think they turned out pretty cute. ;)
By the way, the $4 Unity singles are about to go up a little in price to $5 per stamp. This increase is due to the increase in our cost. I will update the new prices on Friday when the new shipment comes in. To save a dollar or two, order your singles NOW!
