If I EVER see another cupcake it'll be too soon!

At last I've managed to get out of the mini sweatshop after 2 days & nights making cupcakes...I wouldn't care, I don't even LIKE the things in real life...so just what on earth drove me to make thousands of the damn things in miniature, I have absolutely no idea!
Unfortunately, I had no choice as to how many I was making as it was a case of "not wasting" both the cake mix itself & the seemingly gallons of "icing" that I had made. I had hoped that in the space of two days, the icing mix might have hardened off too much to carry on...but, having experimented by keeping it in wet kitchen towel inside a plastic baggie, to my horror it stayed perfectly workable...so I had no choice but to plod on!

These are just a small sample of the blasted "pretty" little things...But, HOORAY, Finally this afternoon, I finished both the "icing" & the cake mix...NO MORE cupcakes from this mini kitchen for quite sometime.
I forgot to add that I also kept running out of the tiny roses to stick on the icing...never again!

Imagine making what seemed like thousands of these!!

I think we are "ALL" a little crazy...miniatures have that effect on me anyway...we sit for hours to work on the most detailed of items...if your not crazy when you start, you certainly are by the end of the day!!!

They are so beautiful! I know what you mean about feeling like you should use up the icing and cake mix. I always find my prototype is fun and the rest can be hard work. Lovely!
