So, I came up with this idea the other day adn today, I put it into work! Because I make a TON of cupcake toppers- I wanted a way to show how they look in cupcakes without having to make cupcakes and make an extra set to use in pictures. (That's a lot of time and money just for pictures!) SO- I finally figured out a way! Here it is:

They look so real don't they!!! Really though they are a small gift box in the shape of a cupcake! I found them on clearance at Michael's for 47 cents!!! I pulled the cherry that was on top out and poked a set of my toppers into the center (The tops are decorated foam) and WAH LAH:

Now I have a great way that I can show how EACH set I sell look inside of cupcakes without having to make a set to waste for a picture!!!!

I bought the stand at Michael's a few weeks ago to use for my sister's birthday. It was $10, but I used my 40% off coupon. So, $6 for the stand and $6.50 in fake cupcakes and I have a great display! I think I may actually buy another set of stand/cupcakes to use in one of the boutiques that carries my some of my line here in Louisville. (Oh, FYI- the Michael's coupon this week is for 50% off an item!- Check this post to see where you can print one off!)

Have a sweet day!
