Sweet Treat Thursday -- STRAWBERRY!!!!

Sweet Treat Thursdays are all about food -- our other favorite topic -- and features ways to embellish/wrap/present something edible. CAUTION: May be hazardous to your waistline!

Hi everyone,

Every Friday, I meet up with my friend Caroline for a scrapbooking playdate. Of course, no playdate would be complete without some kind of treat. And when the mood strikes me (or when my 2 + 1 kids allow me extra time), I like to bake. For our date last week, I decided to bake strawberry cupcakes.

Since they say presentation is half of the eating experience, I thought I would present Caroline's cupcake in a cute little box:

There are real strawberries in both the cupcake AND the icing. Yuuuuuuuuummmmmmyyy!!!

The box is a modified version of this project. I used the Rockabilly DSP (retired) to cover the outside panels of the box and the belly band is a piece of Old Olive CS.

Here's a view of the box when it opens up to reveal the yumm-o cupcake.

To embellish the belly band, I used 2 Whisper White punched circles, 2 Basic Black punched Extra-Large Flowers and Old Olive swirls made with the Swirls Scribbles Sizzlits die for the Big Shot. The cute little strawberries were stamped from the Tart & Tangy Stamp Set using Old Olive and Riding Hood Red markers.

OK, who's hungry?! :-)

Have a nice stampin' day! Gen
