During one of my last days subbing in the art room, I was given my first cupcake. In our district children can bring in a small treat for their birthday, and they sometimes are allowed to pick one or two staff outside of the classroom to visit and share their treats with. I had a girl in the art room earlier in the day, who decided to visit me with her treat in the afternoon. I asked her if she remembered that her art teacher was absent, and she said " I know, I brought it for you." It totally made my day! I know there are many of you who have had their fill of cupcakes, but it's not the cake really. It's the thought! I was very thankful and told her that I would let her teacher know that she visited. And that I would eat the cupcake on her behalf--Yummy!
Here are some cupcake sculptures inspired by Wayne Thiebaud made using model magic. I can't remember which blog I saw them on specifically. The bottoms were made with flexible cupcake molds, and the icing was a basic coil. Then the children got to add cherries, sprinkles etc. to top them off. Enjoy!
