Making Cupcake Earrings...

 We love making earrings, and we love cupcakes (especially the one's with buttercream frosting), and look at the rockin' tutorial we discovered at Kara's Cupcakes!  A DIY post showing us all how to combine these 2 loves...
I made these cute little cupcake earrings today for my upcoming cupcake tea party. Aren't they adorable?! My friend sent me a link to a tutorial on how to make them...they're from saucy's sprinkles.

Here's my tutorial...
Supplies you will need:
Polymer clay (at least 2 different colors)
Beads
Eye pins
Jump rings
Earring piecesTake the brown (or color you are using for the cupcake bottom) clay and roll it into a thick snake. Then cut the snake into small pieces...Use a knife or wire to make marks around the sides of the small shape (cuppy bottom)...Then take your other piece of clay and roll it out into a thin snake (this is for the frosting part of the cuppy)...Take the clay snake and attach it to the cupcake bottom. Then start swirling it around the top in a circular motion until it's as tall as you would like. Pinch the clay off at the tip...And here they are ready to go in the oven (just follow the packaging instructions as far as baking goes). I added small beads for sprinkles and inserted the connector throught the top...And the final result! Here they are after they're all baked with earring hooks added (I also sprayed them with a clear varnish)...
Every time we visit Kara's Cupcakes we find more trendy, fun, and creative things-not to mention yummy!!!!
Thanks Kara!

These look really adorable and simple to make. I may have to try to make them for my nieces.

I am glad I found you through blogfrog!
