Lovely cupcakes

Ok, I showed you those wonderful, beautiful, perfect, charming cupcakes that I received from Natasha. Well, I will try anything...I thought it might be nice if a made a few little cupcakes of my own to add to the cake stand...it cant be THAT hard...I had some plaster of paris on hand from a previous craft...so I mixed some up with my wooden spoon (the first of my problems) and poured...no...plopped some in my little cups. I thought I could flatten them a bit, so I dipped the spoon handle in water and then onto the "glob"...ummm, then I had a puddle on top of the "sludge" then as I tried to flatten them it warped the paper...not what I was looking for! I invisioned the lovelyness of Natashas...I look at hers, then I looked at mine...HAVE YOU LOOKED AT MINE!!

Now go take a look at Kari and Kijsa's blog, they have the most beautiful valance...do you REALLY think I should try it?? LOL

Oh no! That looks like something I would do!!
How do those girls make those cakes??
Maybe a mould!!
I think we need some one (maybe Natasha)to do a tutorial for us.
