Pencil Cupcakes ~ A Must Do Re-do!


We just got back from our 
amazing surprise Disney Trip and I wanted
to make something fun, quick
and EASY for BACK TO SCHOOL.

I tried to think of something original but my brain was clouded up with "It's a Small World" playing over and over....and plus...let us be HONEST here...sometimes
other people just have BETTER ideas. 

and this great idea for PENCIL CUPCAKES.

I whipped these babies out in like 10 minutes.

I call it a Must-Do, Re-Do!

I had the fushia, silver and yellow cupcake wrappers on hand and just cut the fushia and silver wrappers down and glued them all together. The Queen has a great cupcake wrapper template you can use to make your own wrappers from construction paper, so click on the link to check it out.

I had some cupcakes frozen in the freezer and thawed those puppies along with some buttercream that I tinted the organe-y, light brownie color.
I also keep some wilton premade tube decorating icing on hand in red and black which really helped out here for the pencil tip!

Here is to people who have better ideas and to those who replicate their ideas to keep them in business!
