cupcake pops

i just want to show off the cupcake pops that my friend and i made a couple weeks ago. they were my first batch ever and her third (she was very ambitious that week). many of you have probably heard of the famous bakerella. i have always been interested in trying out her cake pop tutorials, but never had the patience to test them out.

our cupcake pops were strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting inside. incredibly sweet, but tasty! if you're interested in making some yourself, check out this page from bakerella's site.

halloween

this halloween i was convinced by a coworker to be part of an "under the sea" theme. we've been dressing up for the past few years, and as usual, i wanted to be the exact same thing as i was the year before (last year i was a mushroom). however, i was immediately won over when she showed me the picture of a jellyfish costume in her family fun magazine (complete with instructions): http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/jellyfish-costume-785313/.

yes, i am aware that this is a costume for a child.

they usually are the best ones. i more or less made up my own instructions, but still used the picture as a guide. i wanted to be more realistic looking, so i chose all white and iridescent fabrics and ribbons. i also very much wanted to glow. yep, that's right- GLOW. in order to accomplish this, i hand-stitched on little elastic loops approx 3 inches apart around the rim of the straw hat as the very first step, before gluing on the felt base:


i bought a few packages of glow bracelets (see first image) which i planned to loop through the elastic the morning before i showed off my costume at work. i was able to recycle last year's outfit since i was a mushroom (mushroom hat-same concept as the jellyfish- also from the same magazine), a white dress i got from express for $10 and footless tights.
a picture of it partly complete (before the top layer of iridescent fabric):



and finally:

see how i glow? on friday i glowed blue and saturday i glowed pink. jealous much? want to be a jellyfish next halloween? mmhmm i thought so...
