After making discussions about the topper, things turned to cupcakes and cake pops as well. Before I knew it I had an order for a dozen cupcakes, dozen cake pops and the topper. I was looking forward to it!
I started with the topper because I was not sure how well this was going to go. Plus if I really didn't like it, I had plenty of time to start again! I was pleasantly surprised it only took me about 2.5-3 hours to make, and I was pleased with the first attempt, that no second one was needed.
My husband says she looks more like a Fraggle, but nonetheless everyone I asked knew it was Abby:)

I wasn't totally pleased with her hair, but I had no access to a "Barber Shop" playdough set in order to make things easier, so each piece was rolled out by hand. I could have done a bit better of a job on them I think.
I loved how her dress came out though. And a touch of pearl dust to the wings and dress made her pop a little bit more.
The cupcakes were fun to do. My friend actually sent me a picture of what she would like to have. The blog is here. I originally thought, Nah.. I didn't want to attempt those, but the day I started making the cupcakes, I figured why not try.
Again I was pleased with how mine had turned out. Way cuter than I thought and took about 3 hours to complete them all. Definitely a labor of love in this "business":)

And finally, my friend was dying to have some cake pops as well. And I love making people happy:) I didn't want to do anything too fancy with these because of the cupcakes and the topper, so I kept them simple.
My friend was exceptionally pleased with how everything turned out. And I was too. I definitely had fun with this one!
