made on a whim, winged it as i went...gifted to my cupcake loving manager for her birthday...

used this pattern as reference:

Pattern (from memory)

Cast on 6 sts of Peaches n Creme in Ecru on US2 dpns.
Row 1 (and all odd-numbered rows): k all sts
Row 2: kfb into each st (12 sts)
Row 4: [kfb, k1] across (18 sts)
Row 6: [kfb, k1] across (27 sts)
Row 8: [kfb, k2] across (36 sts)
Row 10: [kfb, k2] across (48 sts)

Row 11: p all sts
Rows 12-21: [k1,p1] across

Row 22: using double strands of Caron Simply Soft in Soft Pink, p all sts.

Fill with stuffing (polyfill) as you go.

Row 23: switch to US10.5 dpns or circulars for magic loop.
Make bobble: k, yo, k all in 1st. turn and p 3 sts. turn and pass middle st over rightmost st. repeat for leftmost st. k st left on needle.
[Next 2 sts: k2tog.
Make 2nd bobble: repeat as first bobble but when purling, p 2 sts and p2tog the last st with the k2tog st from before.] x repeat to end (16 bobbles made).

Row 24: k2tog last st of row 23 with first st of row 24.
[pick up 1 st from the k2tog space from row 23.
k the st on top of the bobble.] x repeat to end (32 sts).

Row 25: k all sts.
Row 26: k2, k2tog (28 sts).
Row 27 - 28: k all sts.
Row 29:  k1, k2tog (24 sts).
Row 30 - 31: k all sts.
Row 32: k2tog (12 sts).
Row 33: k all sts.
Row 34: k2tog (6 sts) - optional for tighter close: use US2 dpns for this row.

Cut a comfortably long tail, pull yarn end through remaining sts and close opening. Tuck in ends securely (can use long tail to weave through loose sts by bobbles where the stuffing shows, also a crochet hook comes in handy). Sew in sprinkles (beads).

weird portions are due to winging it as i went.

Hope you like!

hahaha..a winged cupcake would be very curious indeed! Makes you wonder where the expression "winged it" came from.  Cheesy

That's so cute! I love it. Thanks so much for the pattern, too.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

The northern downpour sends its love.

I've been staring at this adorable cupcake all day.

Because of that, I got really hungry for one and made some adorable and edible cupcakes today with pink and green frosting.
