Positive Affirmation Cupcakes:

By on January 13th, 2008 . Filed under: Decorating .

Today was my mother’s birthday. At the moment funds around our household are a bit limited, and anyway, I wanted to do something for her that went further beyond something I could just buy. All along I had planned on making cupcakes, because that is how I like to celebrate special days. In a spark of inspiration I remembered these beautiful affirmation stones blogger Dancing Mermaid left for her friend (on her birthday) and I knew what I would do. I would create positive affirmation cupcakes for my dear, dear mother. Sustenance for her body and spirit.

And here they are.

Tips and tools:

  • To attain the smooth surface of icing I used a regular store bought can of, vanilla, icing. However, I first melted half of the can in the microwave and then added, spoon by spoon, the remaining unmelted icing from the other half of the can until I reached a consistency that was proper for ‘dipping’ the cupcakes. By dipping I mean just that! I dipped each tiny cake into the bowl of melted icing and then placed it back on the tray to cool and ‘set up.’
  • After the vanilla canvas set up I then wrote the positive affirmations on the cakes with Cake Mate Writing Icing in Classic Colors.
  • While writing on the cupcakes my only tip is GO SLOW. If you go slow and brace your hand you’ll do fine!
