We asked you to create cupcakes based on our vintage teacup mood board from design-seeds.com, and you delivered! We are excited to announce the winner of our first Inspiration Challenge is…

nikkigonzalez for this beautiful tea party cupcake!

The amount of detail on her miniscule fondant figures is impressive, as is the teetering stack of tea time items. The ring of flowers and pearls ties back to the mood board, and the pretty teapot and teacup capture the vibe of the inspiration image. Congratulations, Nikki!


We absolutely loved ALL of the cupcakes submitted, and had a great time seeing what you came up with for tea time. Stay tuned for our next challenge, coming up soon!

You don't need gold food coloring you can use gold luster dust either dry or add a drop of vodka or clear vanilla extract to make a paint.
