Hi! I made this for my future mother-in-law's birthday. She likes trees, so I thought she'd like this. It was my first attempt at making a tree, so it actually looks more like a cupcake, but whatever. She liked it lol

and post grout!

When I first glanced at the picture I thought "tree" not "cupcake"! It's beautiful!

So pretty and such a wonderful idea!  It would look really beautiful against a window or somewhere where lots of light will come through it all the time.  That dark grout totally sets it off.  Gorgeous!  And, I thought 'tree' too...although now I am picturing an adorable cupcake as well...lol!!
