I had big plans for cupcakes this weekend, and these little leaves were going to adorn the tops. Well, they eventually will…as of now, these little leaves are still out on my counter as I still try to find/create the perfect cupcake recipe for them.
I’m thinking maple spice.
I made these by [...]
Hold on to all those old Ny-Quil cups. They are awesome for measuring out liquid extracts. AND, so much easier to wash than a bundle of measuring spoons.
dollar store crafts

I never have enough cake stands…so I made a couple. It’s pretty self explanatory:
