Cupcake Carousel and Topper

Summer days remind me of County Fairs and Sweets. My favorite treat at the local count fair is cotton candy. I love its pink and blue colors and its light, sweet, and fluffy texture.
Cupcake Carousel
Who wouldn't like a carousel ride on a sweet, fluffy cupcake? I have had this image in my mind for quite sometime now. I have finally had a little creativity kick in the pants. Just a little kick--resulting in only two pieces.
Pom Pom Bluebird Cupcake Topper--sweet enough to perch atop a cupcake. He even has worn his own party hat made from a vintage cupcake liner.

Another Sweet of the actual eating kind - Coconut Blossoms. I changed up a recipe from Paula Deen and made my almond and coconut flavored. I prefer the original recipe for her Lemon Blossoms. You have to try them...they are addicting.

Have a sweet week,
