Up Next, a Beautiful Carousel

Hi SP Bloggers ... Before she and Renee hit the road for Summer CHA, Sue created this very cool Carousel Cupcake! 

Sue's Carousel Creation

If you'd like to create a Carousel Cupcake, gesso paint the bottom portion of the cupcake with Pixie Pink and paint the trim with Pink Azalea Silks.  "Frost" the cupcake with Viva modeling creme and "sprinkle" it with Glitter Ritz while still wet.  Adhere Pebbles Crystal Candi around the cupcake and place one on top.  Although the crystals are self-adhesive, suggest you use Glossy Accents since they don't really lay flat.  Tie ribbons to the "brass ring" and then place the brass ring on top of the cupcake.  Add a Pebbles crystal candy dot on the top of the cupcake.

We want to be sure you get a sneak peek at some of the stuff that will be coming out at the Summer CHA show and give you a chance to pre-order with some special deals.  Check 'em out!  And check the blog often 'cause Sue and Renee are sure to send us pics from their road trip!

  1. The pebble crystal candy look just like gum drops. Nice job. This new challenge is making me hungry.

  2. Beautiful. And I agree with Antonella's post: this challenge makes me hungry too.
