WILD Animal Cupcakes!

Wow - I'm slow - but here are some fun animal cupcakes I made for my friend's daughter's 7th birthday - They were vanilla cupcakes with "princess (yes, that's what it's called)" flavored buttercream. I made the animals out of gumpaste, which I cut with my fabulous Cricket Cake machine, and then hand-painted with food-coloring. So fun to do!

Thanks, cakegirl! YES!!!! You will never regret it - although there is a HUGE learning curve, as you have to experiment a lot to get used to it. It really is such a small cost compared to what you get. But I would never buy it without also buying Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL). It is a software program that allows you to take any picture file (jpeg, gif, tif) and convert it into a cut file (so you don't need to buy any Cricut cartridges!). I've used it so many times!!!!! And you can get tons of free fonts and images online that you can convert in seconds!
