A Cupcake...

I have to admit, I do better with paper than I do with the edible versions!! LOL
This is for son and heir, indirectly, that is.  He is off to a friends wedding tomorrow and he decided that as the couple have been together since University days and have already bought their home that it was going to be difficult to get them a gift that don't already have and opted for a gift card.  I thought I would make a faux cupcake to hold the said gift card to make it look a little more like an actual gift!!
There is enough bling on this thing to sink the proverbial battleship... pearls, glitter, stick pins, and little diamonds laden the 'icing'... just hope it doesn't clash with her wedding colours because, of course, dear son had no clue as to what they might be!!
Now I need to make a card to go with it... that should prove interesting!! ;)


  1. Oh Annette that's gorgeous - I'm sure they will love it and what a great way to show off the gift card!

  2. Wow!!! Me want!!!

    It is fabulous Annette and I love the colour choice.

  3. I love your cupcake. Can't believe you are off to Oz now, feels like you just got home! I wish you strength.

  4. oh this looks so good! Are you sure you can't eat it!!


  5. Your cupcake is very clever. I didn't realise you were going off to Australia so soon after your arrival in Scotland, you are a brave woman, I'd be beyond stressed! Have you told the cats yet?? Have a great 2013 in Oz.

  6. This is just stunning! What a fabulous way to present an otherwise mundane gift card.


Thank you for taking the time to leave your comment, it is truly appreciated - sort of confirms that it is more than my Mum and husband that read this thing! :)
