Cupcake Palooza

A couple hours north of Atlanta, there is a town that has a Cabbage Patch Hospital. It's a very cute place.  When our family last visited the CPH, my niece adopted a CP toddler which she named after one of her favorite singers, Katy Perry.  I don't know too many Katy Perry songs, but I did see/hear the song, California Girls. From the California music video, I did take a vivid memory of the cupcake bra worn by the singer. I think you can guess where I'm taking this....I wanted to make my niece's cabbage patch doll, a cupcake bra. The craft turned out to be quick and easy. I crafted the cake part of the cupcake from poly clay and stuck that on to the lid from a Poweraid bottle. I used some food dye to color silicon chalking, pink.  Sprinkled the whole thing with glitter and of course, topped it all off with poly clay cherry! I had some extra cupcakes at the end of the craft so I stuck one on a headband. The finished projects are so realistic looking, I'm going to have to remind my four year old niece, "Do not eat!"

They look yummy but do not eat!
