I am SOOOOOOO excited right now. When I went to Michael’s today, it was with the intention of getting some baking supplies. I passed by their little dollar spot and saw these:
That little plate is about 3” in diameter, the little frame about 3.5”.
I started a cupcake blog called The Cupcake Challenge. Basically I’m going to be baking a new cupcake recipe every week. ( If you know of any fun, unusual or interesting flavor combos, send them my way!) (My first recipe is here) My dream is to one day own a cupcake shop. So I am trying to perfect some recipes. In the mean time, I will be blogging about the entire experience. So I needed some photo props.
When I saw the plate and the frame I thought, “that might look cute. will have to see if the cupcake will fit” and then I forgot about it while looking for my other stuff. When I came home, I took one of these little candlesticks:
(that price is for 6 from Hobby Lobby online)
Sprayed it with Satin Espresso from Rustoleum:
and stacked it all together. Please excuse my not-ironed-right-out-of-the-package pillow case, but I was just too excited to do anything else. Here is what I got:
Is that not the cutest thing ever!! Oh Em Gee!
They are NOT glued together because then I can interchange them, so it basically makes it a 3-in-1!:
Just the plate:
Just the frame:
I just can’t get over my excitement. I was planning on going out and getting some fancy plates for props and then I came across these! Tomorrow I am going back and getting every color plate they had, (I think there were 4) and then a few more frames to spray paint some neutral colors. I’ll have a big set of cupcake stands for my pictures. I’m in LURVE!!! (I’m debating spraying this frame with the Satin Espresso so it matches better. We’ll see with some better lighting)
Here it is again all stacked, just cause I can’t stop loving it!
Of course I have to get my faux Ott light out to put over the set up, but I just had to show you guys!!
