Cupcake toppers!

Sometimes you just have to mix things up a little. I have been happily making my plantable paper items for years. But every few months, I try to add a new product not only for good business practices but also to excite myself and do something different. I have a new product in my shop: cupcake toppers. These are made from my plantable paper shapes that are on a stick. You simply push the stick into a cupcake and — voila! — a really pretty and colorful addition to a cupcake in seconds. Party guests can pluck off the plantable shape and plant it in their garden or force it indoors and grow wildflowers. Skip the expensive cake decorating class and save your money on those dyes for frosting. Since cupcakes have been all the rage for a couple of years, I have been enjoying more of them myself. I used these cupcake toppers as a good excuse to visit my local cupcake shop. I needed only one for a photo prop but I couldn't decide between red velvet, chocolate with vanilla frosting or raspberry lemonade so I got all three! I have a hunch that these toppers might not be very good sellers but they are fun and different so I thought I would explore them a little bit. If you would like to see more, go to my Etsy shop at
