Then cut a small circle of red felt and sew a running stitch around the edge of the felt. I put a small Styrofoam ball in the middle to help it hold it’s circle shape. Then pull the thread tight and sew back and forth on the bottom to hold it tight. Knot it at the end and then use hot glue to put the cherry on the top!
Then embellish it with whatever you like. I had some little felt flowers, rick rack, ribbon, and of course you need the sprinkles for the top of the cup cake. If you have straight pins that have a colored ball on the top it makes a great pincushion! You can also cut a piece of magnet in the shape of a circle and glue it on the bottom of the cup cake to pick up all of the dropped pins that you have.
On this one I used just a strip of felt to make the ribbon. Then I had another idea on how to display these cute cupcakes.
I had made a trip to the DI to find some things I needed for my projects and I saw these plates and bowls and thought what cute cake stands they would make. I turned the bowls over and used some 9001 glue to glue the inverted bowls to the bottoms of the plates.
This glue is super strong and is waterproof so you can use it on the cake plates so you can wash them later. (I don’t think I would wash them in the dish washer though.) I thought they turned out pretty cute for putting any kind of sweet treats and for $2.00 for the larger one and $1.50 for the smaller one you can’t beat the price! These cupcakes were very easy to make or I should say easy peasy to make and once you start making them you will just want to make more!
