Paper-Doll Pin Up Girl Cupcakes!

I met this hidden gem of an artist here in Wisconsin who creates murals and miraculously makes everything come to life with a simple pen and a piece of paper.

He drew this gorgeous picture of me, (wow do I ever look like a  hottie!) I love it so much I even thought about changing my logo. Maybe when I open a bakery I will put this on the front window?

He also drew me this amazing sketch of a cupcake..and I want to make a real cupcake inspired by it someday very soon.

This week he asked me to collaborate with him to make "pin-up" style cupcakes for a special person in his life.  I have to say we did all right!

His Drawings.
I made them into "Altered Couture" Cupcake Toppers using Sequins, Lace, Ribbons, and Glittery Card stock. Think..Paper Doll Pin-Up Girls!



I thought about putting corsets on top of the cupcakes. But why not make actual cupcake wrappers that look like the cupcakes are wearing corsets?

This is what the "Marilyn" Cupcake looked like.


Yes, a cupcake in a martini glass.


Here is the website that I used for my cupcake wrapper template
I used my fashion sense to turn the cupcake wrapper into a hot little number. Lace, bling, bows, pearls, hearts.

The edible star on this cupcake was inspired by one of my favorites:
"I'd rather wear jewels in my hair than anywhere else. The face should have the advantage of this brilliance."-Hedy Lamarr.



A shoe and a cupcake in a martini glass! Hmmm this one tells endless stories.






When I delivered the cupcakes..there were about 5 ladies surrounding them, in complete awe! A cupcake fashion show. Hello, Victoria's Secret Annual Fashion Show! A new line of pin-up / cupcake inspired lingerie? Perhaps. ♥
