Cupcapers - Creepy Cameo Cupcakes

A while back I was reading the lovely Scarlett Loves Elvis blog and saw her great craft post featuring a funky skull cameo ring that she'd made and I knew I just had to apply this to cupcakes somehow.

Here's my first realisation and homage to Scarlett's initial discovery (thanks Scarlett!) which I made for a girly get together round at the fabulous Mrs B's house
I then decided to have another bash to perfect the art and made some as a thank you gift for Karen (All About The Boys/The White Approach) for giving me the opportunity to attend CyberMummy
I boxed four up and took them along on the day, although sadly they didn't survive the train journey unscathed, here they are before they got battered
 I think they're quite effective and so simple to make I'll certainly be baking these babies again, although in the mean time I couldn't resist making myself a matching brooch, it will last longer than the cakes!
Linking up with Handmade Thursdays over on White Lily Green, go and check out the other crafty so and sos.
