No Guilt Cupcakes

I admit, I love cupcakes and I love how they are all over the place right now. Yes, they are trendy, but I still get happy whenever I see them. I don’t like what they do to my waistline though. Why is it that everything that tastes so good is so bad for you? ARGH!

Anyway, one year for my birthday, a friend gave me a fake cupcake. I like to do crafty things and thought that this would be a fun thing to try out. I did some searching online and one tutorial mentioned using expanding foam. I gave it a try and it was an epic fail. I’m not sure how they did it, but my cupcakes did not look like what I wanted them to look like. They started out promising, but since I lack a magic wand to stop them at that perfect cupcake shape, they over expanded into cream colored domes. They looked like Chinese steamed pork buns. I drew some faces on them and friends said that they looked totally cute as pork buns, but I didn’t want pork buns! Some how, kawaii pork buns doesn’t have the same ring as kawaii cupcakes. It was back to the internet….

More searching and I came across this wonderful tutorial on Sugar and Meringue on making them using plaster, styrofoam, paper clay and spackle. This version definitely has more steps and materials involved, but I finally had success! I am excited to make more.
