Looking for instructions for mosaic cupcakes, pictures or input as well. I'm assuming the "cake" is foam...?
thanks in advance!

I found these little dishes that I glued the stryofoam to, then mosaiced, then used bugle beads as the sprinkles!

RE: More info

Here's a better link with a bunch of them.

It looks like she used foil cupcake cups and then cut foam to fill and for the cupcake.

I have so many beads and pieces of china, this would be a great project for leftovers. I love those cupcake stands I see in the specialty stores, this would be a great way to use one.

Calamity, do you have pics?

Oh my lord, I could never have those in my house. They look so yummy and real, I'd be starving for cake all day! Those are absolutely amazing. They would be adorable decorations for a bakery.

Thanks! The cups for the cupcakes are just dollar store porceline ceramic dishes, the cake grout was white but I brushed the grout pink cuz I liked it better, same with the cupcakes, they got a grout paint of yellow. And I call that suff my Low Fat Baking!lol! Styrofoam, gotta love it! The silver tea set was a garage sale set.
