A great thread was started the other day about your favorite cake...
Well, why not your favorite cupcake?!?
Here is mine.. Yoda is buttercream (chocolate and vanilla) with fondant cape and light saber. My son requested them and I was so proud of how they came out. They were the first things I made that I made up all on my own (most of the time I copy and borrow other designs)
I'd love to see YOUR favorite cupcake!!
Well nothing fancy here but these are the magnolia birthday cake & icing recipe:
Strazle - I love the flowers with the red cups...looks great!
OMG! I adore the Yoda... I just showed my Star Wars fanatic hubby and he says "oh wow, looks it's Yoda on a cupcake! Very cute!"
I love it, DaisyLisa!
Yours, too, Linliv!
And thanks, Butterflywings!
Strazle.. are the cupcakes in the red wrappers nut cups? If so did you bake in them or put them in afterwards ? Thanks
Here are my favorite cupcakes that I've made. These were also one of the easiest one's I've ever done. Sorry I can't find the picture on my computer, but here's the link to it in my pictures.

I LOVE these cupcakes!!! I don't do many cupcakes, but these are amazing. Talk about raising the bar. Awesome work!
how do you get the icing so round and flat-like on the spring cupcakes?
Sorry have not done any yet but just wanted to say you all have lovely cupcakes, what an inspiration to others!
I love Kylie Lambert's cupcakes - http://www.flickr.com/photos/lecupcake. These are my favorite design of hers:
These are all so awesome!
I am partial to flowers...so those are my favs - but the ideas that you are all sharing are great!
Keep 'em coming!
Beautiful cupcakes ladies!
And, to answer the question about the red wrappers...yes, they are nut cups and they were baked in the nut cups. I just gave a tiny spray with cake release. When they finished baking I snipped the edge of each cupcake once for easy opening.
They were a big hit at the Tupperware party! He! He! It was my first tupperware party and it sucked my in!!!
Strazle.. Thanks Im going to have to try the nut cups ! I bought some but havent tried them yet ! What a great idea, sell the tupperware and put out the sugar creations to get some orders there to ! maybe you can supply the desserts for all the partys! For a fee of course !
I can't attach mine but this is a great thread. I love doing cuppies and so it's perfect for great ideas. Thanks.
