OVER THE TIPSY TOP CUP "CAKE"



















It's Friday and we made it through our 1st week of blogging (sort of?)! We hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have. So, lets celebrate with this Over The Tipsy Top cup "cake". We both love cupcakes so when we found this Wilton cake pan we knew it was a purchase we had to make. So let's get started: first, smear frosting onto your cake-plate, it acts like a glue and holds the cake in place. We frosted this cake using Wilton decorating tip #127 (You can find Wilton products at Michael's craft stores). To us it's all about the frosting so, remember to put a thick layer in the middle between the base and the cake top. For our curly-cues: we rolled pieces of salt water taffy into long strings, wrapped them around drinking straws and placed them in the freezer for a few minutes. Then gently remove the straw, poke a hole into the cake and place the end of the taffy there. The taffy will slowly drape over the cake. Bake it, decorate it, dig-in and enjoy! We have had a fabulous week thanks for 'blogging' with us, we'll see you Monday!!!

OK I am an idiot. I just realized that this is a "cake" not cupcakes. It is so so cute. I might try it since I would only have to decorate 1. Thanks for all the cute ideas. You guys are so lucky to have a friend that is into the same things you are and that you both have such great ideas!
