More Christmas Stuff

These are the felt cupcakes I made my nephew and niece for Christmas. There are about a billion cupcake tutorials out there, like here, and a really sophisticated one here and did I use any of them? No, I didn't because I don't have a printer to print up anything. So as a result they have sort of drunken sailor early in the morning look about them. The thing that I did that's new, that I haven't seen before is simple - I didn't! No I haven't just gone crazy...I DIDN'T do something that I've seen everyone else do as the finishing touch - sew on the decorations. I cut out circles, squares, stars, spirals and one "drizzle glaze" splotch, and then put them in a baggie. Now they can be rearranged in different combinations. As an added bonus, they can be scattered all over my sister's living room floor for a post-ticker-tape parade effect! Go check out these adorable sister and my so talented sister here!


  1. These are adorable! I've been wanting to make some; I love the felt sunny-side-up egg I've seen!

  2. They LOVE these cupcakes. Every kid who comes over immediately starts baking them in the's great! :-) I should confess that more than a couple sprinkles have been lost to the vacuum, but out of some of the extra felt you gave me I made more of the drizzle pattern ones. So now, if they want each cupcake can have a matching color of icing (or not). Also, Silas decided some of those extra felt squares were fancy napkins, and he likes to serve us each a cupcake on a fancy cloth 'napkin'. Thanks Lissa!

  3. I somehow missed this post before. I love these cupcakes too, even though I don't get to play with them. :D
    Corrie - your kids are too cute.
    Lissa- I think you've opened us up to endless possibilities of SIMPLE felt food.
