Here's something a little bit different from the usual projects you see from me:
Yes you've seen me make cupcakes before, but not one this big! It was Zac's last day of term at pre-school today and they had an Easter bonnet parade, I was in such a panic yesterday wondering what to make, wondering how to make a hat base. Didn't realise you could get a basic plain kids bonnet at the supermarket! Here's my finished creation:
It's all Stampin' Up! minus the hat itself, the chicks and the felt flower on the cake top. Oh and the inside frame of the cupcake is a plastic plant pot! I folded Neautrals DSP to wrap around it and secured with some very unboyish pink grosgrain ribbon. Now before you protest, Zac asked for a cake hat! He'd seen some at school with eggs and chicks on and said he didn't want one. I asked him what he did want and he said 'a big chocolate and pink cake Mummy' So I had to oblige of course, how could Mummy say no?
The cake top was the hardest bit, I cut the largest circle I could from the DSP and cut in places to fold in the get the shape. Stapled it together and just plopped it in place in the plant pot. The bunnies are all made from our punches with a little Basic Gray Marker for detail. And here is my very own little Mad Hatter, still in his jammies this morning:
Not the best photo but as good as I could get at 6.30am! Hope the school took some good ones. Now it's two and a half weeks before he goes back, got to find lots to keep him occupied now.
