The cupcake holder was cut using my Cricut Expression and the Cindy Loo cartridge. I embellished my birds with little feathers, a button and twine.
First, you need a styrofoam ball. You need to cut a rectangular hole in the center as wide and as deep as your tag. This takes a bit of patience to cut out the styrofoam, but well worth it in the end!
To cover your cupcake with vanilla "frosting" you will need modeling paste and my favorite glitter.......Martha Stewart's clear course glitter!
Take a popsicle stick or plastic knife and spread your "frosting" like you would real cake frosting. It will dry just the way you apply it.
While the "frosting" is still wet, sprinkle your glitter over it. Stick it in a real cupcake liner to dry.
Once your cupcake is dry enough to handle, hot glue it to a cupcake liner. I do this just so the ball isn't rolling all over the place and it will give you a place to attach your decorative liner to.
I cut my cupcake liner with the Cindy Loo cartridge and Pink Paislee paper. I glued vintage lace to the top and adhered the entire thing to white felt. I did this so my cupcake wrapper is heavier and more substantial to hold my styrofoam ball.
The white felt creates a liner on the inside of the paper. Now you will take your frosted styrofoam ball, with paper liner and glue it to the inside of your decorative cupcake liner.
Here is the project again finished and with the tag pulled out. I did add some pearls and tiny rhinestones for sprinkles!

Adorable cupcake. Thanks for the tutorial
Absolutely gorgeous! I'm definitely going to make some of these (also a great way to use up my nearly-finished pot of heavy gel paste). Great idea, thanks so much for sharing.
Thank you for sharing this tutorial on how to make this incredible cupcake. I really want to make one of these now! You made it look so gorgeous that I would not have attempted to make one if you had not included such a great tutorial. I guess we all get a little intimidated when we see such amazing projects but your clear instructions with pictures encouraged me to go for it. Do you mind if I send you a picture of it when I am finished? Thanks again, Bonnie
