Georgetown Cupcake (DC) key lime cupcake

I can haz key lime?

I came across this picture and realized I forgot to share it with you.  Remember the weekend we went to Savor?

 

We also went to Georgetown Cupcake & got these delicious treats:

My favorite, of course, was the key lime cupcake… it reminded me of my wedding cake!  Hooray, cupcakes!

Cupcakes, A Day Early!

2 Feb

So as it turns out I didn’t finish my custom order yesterday, which means you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see how it turned out.  In the meanwhile, how about a cute little pattern for a cupcake applique?  Yes?  Yes?  Wellllll, okay.

 

Y.U.M.

 

 

 

I made this little bag for a friend who happens to LOVE cupcakes.  It was her birthday, and I needed something to put her gift, this awesome little necklace in, so I came up with this teeny thing:

the cutest little cupcake bag in all the land!

I didn’t keep track of the pattern for the bag – it’s just some BLO dc’s, really.  BUT THE CUPCAKE, oh, well, the cupcake looked like it was going to take ten minutes and ended up taking me all afternoon.  Those ratios are more difficult than they look, yo (though it may have had something to do with an extreme bout of insomnia on my part).  ANYWAY.  Here’s what to do:

FOR THE FROSTING:

1: ch 8

2: sc across, ch1, turn

3: sc-inc, 6 sc, sc-inc, ch1, turn

4: sc-dec, 6 sc, sc-dec, ch1, turn

5: sc-dec, 4sc, sc-dec, ch1, turn

6: sc-dec, 2sc, sc-dec, FO.

FOR THE CAKE:

1: ch 5

2: turn, ch1, sc across x3, FO.

FOR THE CHERRY:

1: ch5, sl st to form a ring

2: sc however many you can fit to form a circle (6 or 8 ought to do it), FO.

Sew or Liquid Stitch all that jazz together, and… (say it with me now…  VOILA!)  Cupcake appliques for everyone!  Hooray!

Yeah, I use Hello Kitty lip gloss. Wanna make something of it?!?

P.S. Wow, someone really ought to refinish my vanity… that looks just AWFUL…
