Pretty little cupcakes

I just made some cupcakes for a girl at work's birthday morning tea. I was pretty pleased with how they turned out, so I've posted a pic in case anyone's interested (I love looking at other peopl's creations myself ).

They were super-easy; just vanilla cupcakes, a bit of glace icing, and the flowers. I made these out of flower paste, using a rose cutter, a little blossom cutter, and a candle-holder (to get the little round centre - it was all I could find!). Stick them together, and there you are!

Wow, those are awesome. I love the whole website Unfortunately, I'm sure they don't ship to NZ. Here's a deal, babe and texasgirl, I'll ship you cupcakes, you ship me cupcake-wrappers?

Thanks for all your lovely comments.
