These things were just too freaking cute, I couldn't wait until morning to post about them quick. I had seen these on a couple of blogs and for some reason I got the kick to try them out tonight.
Seriously, I was watching TV and I just jumped up and gathered up all my tools to make these. I don't have anything to put them on/decorate with them. I was in a weird mood today apparently. I had a lot of leftover fondant from the cake I covered, so I broke it into sections and did some coloring.
|I colored my own pearls!|
|I made the head and took a very small piece of blue and put a blue pearl in the middle to resemble the "nook".|
Working with fondant is pretty much like working with play dough, which makes even art-challenged people such as myself feel like they are more talented. :D I could have probably gotten away with skipping the arms entirely by giving it a different look with the blanket, but I went for it anyway.
|I accidentally gave it a dent instead of an eye. Oops|
|I added "hair" to the baby girl with a pink pearl to act as a clip.|
|I hated it. It looks like poop on her head.|
|I left the boy alone, only adding one little blue pearl to his blanket.|
|I also added a few white pearls to the girls blanket and gave it some texture.|
Is there a pregnant person out there that wants to be my guinea pig for these cupcakes? Anyone?
Ok well either way I have to make up some more of these and use them to top some cupcakes! I hope to have the cake pictures off the camera in a few days so stay tuned for that.
