Bridal Event Oreo Cupcakes

Hi Crafters,

Here's my weekend project!  I made oreo cupcakes using Bean Town Baker's Recipe.  I followed the advice of some of the comments and added the sugar with the butter to cream it before adding the milk. I also put a bit of batter in the bottoms of the cups to keep the cookie from sticking.  The wrapper peeled off like butter once they were completely cooled.  I brought these to a party my best friend was hosting for her bridesmaids.  They were a big hit.

Now on to the toppers...
I made the fan-folded rosettes with 1x11 paper strips.  I used my Martha Stewart scoreboard to score every 1/4 inch increment.   I used my cuttlebug to cut out small scalloped circles out of gold paper from the DCWV Peacock stack.  I then hot glued the ends of my rosettes together and hot glued a scalloped circle on each side.

The blue bridesmaid dresses and shoes came from Gypsy Wonderings.  The white bridal gown came from Sweethearts.

I glued toothpicks to the backside of the rosette for support.  Sorry about the subpar picture,it is from my cell phone because my husband had the nikon with him.

Happy Crafting,
