Octopus Cupcakes

I have a crazy love for octopus's. It started a few years ago, with a love for pirates! I use to get pirate and skull and crossbones everything for birthdays, Christmas's, and so on. One Christmas my sister gave me a necklace of an octopus. It was absolutely gorgeous. Ever since then I have been fascinated with octopus's and also squids(weird, it know)! Its still my favorite necklace. I saw similar octopus cupcakes on flickr and just had to try and make my own.
These cupcakes are made from a chocolate cake base, and sea foam green buttercream icing. I made the octopus using fondant and edible writers.

Happy 27th Cupcakes

Made these cupcakes for a friend of mine. Its a chocolate cupcake base with vanilla buttercream icing. I just love the color teal. Its one of my favorites. These cupcakes were a hit. The birthday girl just loved them. She actually took a bunch and hide them because they were going so fast!
