I said before Pinterest. I’m talking June of 2007. As in, we were on the party scene back when Myspace was cool.
Oh. My. Stars.
I’m working with Silhouette America to create cutesy party details so you pin all the things. Go ahead and pin your heart out, folks!
What kind of cupcake do I make? Luaus are full of coconuts, palm trees, sand, hula dancers, seashells…
Except, my party had a palm tree cooler, coconut centerpieces, and seashell table decorations. I was stumped. I had the sand part locked and loaded, but the hamsters were working overtime on the rest of the ocean cupcake.
At this point, I had two options:
- Go shopping and buy inspiration.
- Pillage my overstuffed craft room and save a doll hair or two.
The craft room was clean when I began my search.
It was not when I found my stash of paper umbrellas. It was completely ransacked.
Ocean Cupcakes Tutorial:
For more of a stormy sea look, flip the cupcake upside down before you add the brown sugar.
I totally planned the tutorial this way. It’s not like my ocean cupcakes were top heavy and tipped over.
Let me introduce you to my son of a biscuit eater face. Interwebz, meet the face that can tell no lies.
Dropping them is messy. Dropping them will drive your husband bonkers. If you think about it, dropping them is even sort of wasteful.
But they look cool.
So, so cool.
This machine is the best thing since sliced bread. Goodbye waiting weeks for Etsy sellers to get me my goods. Sayonara skipping the cutesy party details because the turnaround time on a party gig is too tight.
