Annie's Party Planning...Cupcake Cake Plates

    I have been having WAY too much fun planning this with my sis, Auntie Cake.  I mean WAYYYYY too much.  I think my husband is getting a little frightened.  I WISH I could get him to make a scared face to insert HERE but, not a chance :)

    Today, I am going to show you a little sneak peek of the cupcake cake plates.  Now, please don't look too closely at the cupcake...baking is REALLY not my thing.  Confession...I actually used a ready to bake frozen muffin puck just so I could take this cake plate for a test run.   Sad...I know.  Hey, at least I used a chocolate muffin :) 

Cupcake anyone?
I am not sure what the cupcakes will look like but the party colors are pink & turquoise.

Here are the easy to make cupcake plates:



Now, I will let you in on all my amazing secrets. 
(I hope you know that amazing secrets
part was sarcastic :) 

Here is all you need:

    I liked these clear cups that I found at Target (party supply isle), only because they are a little skinnier than a lot of plastic cups.  I turned them upside down & sprayed the outside.

And then the top is just this little cardstock circle, $0.69 at Archivers.

I bought a few colors to try but I liked the silver the best.

Then, I actually just used a few pieces of rolled scotch tape to attatch them.  I didn't want glues to ruin the top.

& Wah-lah!
You are done!

Then, today I found the perfect touch:

Just a stick on Gem! 
(Michael's 20 for $2.99)

    I wish I could show it to you with the cupcake, but the second I finished taking pictures, there was a boy with BIG puppy dog eyes happy to take it off my hands.
So you see...all I have now is an empty cupcake plate.  :)

Another great idea! O.K. I need to tell you of the power of your blog and the posting of your Amazing Secrets... Every Target I went to looking for those cute little pompoms was sold out!!! i can only assume that after everyone read the post of the cute little toothpicks and the fairytale picnic in the woods that they scooped up every last one! Thankfully I had my thinking cap on and went to a different store... I know I'm a genious!! LOL!! It was too late for Hannahs birthday dinner but I think I will do them for a special lunch now. This is getting really long now but I have to tell you that while I was out I thought I'll just call Libbie and ask her where exactly in Target they were... then I remembered that we have never actually met but are blog friends! I'm not asking for your number (you don't have to go into the witness protection program!) I'm just saying it felt like I actually KNEW you! Thanks for being a friend! Theresa

Karen said...

Thank you so much for stopping in to check on us, it means the world. We make Mamma sandwiches at my house, cept' my younguns have 4 legs instead of 2. We apparently have that same little curl, as well. Do come back and see me, when it's not all doom and gloom. It's nice to meet you,

Marla said...

What a cool idea! I think I could even do this one.....maybe. If Bob would trust me around spray paint again. That last incident really wasn't ALL my fault. Nevermind.

Great idea!
