The size of your towels will determine the size of your cupcakes. They're supposed to be daity, so pick rectangular towels. I actually did one at the store to determine the right size (one that fits a cupcake liner. Do this if you don't want to end up with 2 dozen towels that are wrong in size!
Don't they look cute already! Make enough for the amount you plan to have. Use your imagination, you can use beads like gumdrops, or a lollipop too.

These are my first attempt at cupcake baking and icing piping and fondant playing! The orange poppy seed cupcake turned out fabulously pretty and yummy!!! I made the fondant butterflies a few days ahead. Fondant is not so forgiving in tropical climate...I think putting an air cond in the kitchen might help.
We made a short visit at the florist shop in Chinatown and bought wholesale roses, crysanthemums, and orchids for the house too.
You must be wondering at this point, how come there aren't any photos of people...My cameraman was too busy having his cupcake! LOL!
Made 2 dozen of these for doorgifts. The tutorial is up in the next post. Keep a watch for it!

Here's Nigel busy cutting some images. We downloaded from all over the web, we talked about the concept and the crazy little ideas we want inside the scrapbook.
Should have made more of these to sell. They sold out! Some even came back for seconds! But at the back of my mind.. what if I don't sell all of them? (Nigel would have a grand day eating them all!!!) Oh yes, I had them neatly packed in glass paper with scallop edging. It was a busy week but not bad for a week of crafting, our stall made quite a lot of money that day!
