What better way to get my craft on with Crafting Mama, then by doing something Mama is quite comfortable in?  I enlisted the help of my kids and my hubby, making this a family challenge!
I was going to make the entire cover of the Crafting Mama, but it didn't fit on my table!  So I put her pretty blue scarf she made around her neck!  And because of the ridiculous amount of cupcakes, after laying them all out, I took them apart and spread the cupcake love around town! 
 
Stats:
10 hours
11cups of flour
6.25cups sugar
11eggs
4 pounds of butter
4 pounds of icing sugar
Makes a total of 500+cupcakes!

There are only 414 that went into this, but it was great tasty fun!

Firstly the finished project:
Little pic

 
big pic




Process:
lining the mini cupcake pan

ready to ice!

"assembly"

all ready to be spread around town

My tallish husband stood on a chair and held the camera up over it and took a bunch of pics until he got one that was somewhat centered Smiley

Everyone loved em.  I've gotten a big bag of garden potatoes because I gave  a random old man on the street a plate of cupcakes.  (we live in a town of 300, everyone knows everyone)  And a couple pails of apples too Smiley  I take that as they liked em Cheesy

a town of 300?  So you could walk around town and give everyone a cupcake and still have 200 cupcakes left!?!?   Cheesy  That would be a good way to make friends if you were new in town...

It took us a good 3 hours, that's where I enlisted the help of my husband. He iced, I placed.  It was awesome to watch him ice cupcakes.. i swear I got a pic of it, but I can't find it!  But if I did it alone, it would have taken way longer Smiley
