Gotta go - kids chewed thru their straps...

« on: February 10, 2013 01:44:32 PM »

A friend of mine asked me to do some cupcakes for another friend of hers that was leaving work - and his favorite things were France (and everything related!), Pugs (he has 2 black ones), the gay pride flag (he's very proud to be gay) and Golden Girls. I was super excited to to the Golden Girls - who doesn't love them?? I found some lovely artwork online from Glen Hanson (LOVE his work!!) and used it. And I think they turned out AWESOME! Cheesy Let me know what you think!

The toppers are made w/melted candy wafers. I melt them in the microwave in a ziploc, cut a teeny tiny hole in the corner and pipe onto waxed paper (with the drawing underneath). You have to make sure and make them thick - or else they'll break super easily. And hot weather is evil to them...  Tongue

You are a super friend and you did a super job on decorating those!  What a labor of love...I would hate to eat them, but at least you took some great photos and the memory of them will be with you and your friend forever!
