I'm a finisher. This means, I finish every project, or every idea (I try, at least). I think of pinterest as more of a to do list than an ideas list. This can be a little bit of a problem. Now, I'm not a fast finisher. I have far too many projects I have the pieces to that aren't finished yet, but they will be...someday. Having said all that...this is a project I wanted to try out probably four years ago. I bought the muffin tins and then I saw a squirrel or something. I finally uncovered these muffin tins and it was time. I love it because they are play cupcakes you can also use to teach colors.
I painted the inside of the tin to match the cupcake tops. As far as making the cupcakes-google a free pattern to make play cupcakes-there should be a ton. The ones I used didn't work out, so I had to wing it on the way.
I used brown felt for the base which I stuffed and then different colors of fabric for the tops and I hot glued the two pieces together.
