Tuesday Toppers: Cupcake, cupcake


I get so many emails asking when or if i'm going to do the tutorial for this cupcake topper and it has finally come up next on the list (yes i keep a list! I LOVE lists, lol). Although I think that when I make them again as toppers I will make them a tiny bit smaller. I also have plans to make these as ornaments in polymer clay and sell them in my etsy store (not open just yet, but soon!) Here's what you'll need to make one:
