  1. Oh Steph, regarding your comment. I totally did it...and it's totally easy. :)

    I just got a cupcake stand, and I got two ''bows'' made from curling ribbon and wrapped it around the base of the stand. Then I did the cupcakes and added the sprinkles THEN my crowning piece (get ready) I got the ''top'' from her Dora bubble bath (purchased at Wal mart a while back) and sat it up on top. Nifty huh. :)
