I have been waiting all week to post this project but waited until I had actually given them to the birthday girl.
I wanted to make something special for my little friend's first birthday. First I tried my hand at a simple bunny rabbit but we decided it look more like a rat and opted for some fun food. I am so happy the bunny didn't work out because I love the pattern from BitterSweet. After spending waayyyy too much time on Ravelry looking for something fun to make I found her pattern and was drawn to the fact that she said they were quick to make. Quick is an understatement. I was able to whip one of these bad boys out during morning nap. Anyone who knows me knows that I have the a pretty short attention span so these were right up my alley.
I was able to use up some random yarn I had from other projects and easily altered the pattern to make the frosting fit the cake.
I scored the container at King Soopers when I went to the bakery and asked for a box that would hold six cupcakes. The young lad behind the counter looked confused and said, "I didn't know we had cupcakes in the case!" Well - you don't, but thanks for the container. I did offer to pay but he had no idea how you would even ring up "empty cupcake container."
The label was made using a 2 x 4 mailing label that I whipped up on Photoshop. Not sure how long to container will last but it was perfect for the presentation of the gift.

I have a feeling lots of birthday boys and girls will be getting these cuties. I hope Amelia loves them as much as I do.
