Basketball Cupcakes and Stand




Going a different direction today and sharing a little project 
I made for my niece's graduation party.
I offered to make the cupcakes for the event and decided to make basketballs to represent the years she has played and her future games in college.

 Here's the final result.
I found a 3 tier cupcake stand by Wilton at Hobby Lobby.
I assembled it and took it the craft room to get it all gussied up for the event!




I cut 1" border strips out of black paper and then also used some leftover basketball border strips from Michael's by Recollections.  I think the letter stickers are from Hobby Lobby. 
The front view.


The back view.
The stars were cut with a Sizzix die in my Cuttlebug. 
I added a few gems here and there.

 
I saw this basketball cupcake on Pinterest.


I covered mine with orange icing (Wilton buttercream) and then
I dipped it in orange sprinkles.
The piping was done with Wilton Tip #5


I am entering this project into Simon Says Stamp: Anything but a Card challenge.
Thanks for looking,
Kelly
