This week's cupcakes were submitted by Tara, who created a festive feline treat just in time for the holidays!
She writes, "My friend Lauryl and I got together recently to make these Christmasy Cat Cupcakes, and we were pretty proud of how they came out! We used some hand-cut out stencils and powdered sugar and then did some red and green frosting accents. You might notice the reindeer/kitty hybrids on a few – that was Lauryl’s stroke of genius. There’s also one that says “MRA?” which is what my cat Henry says when he’s hungry."
Tara also tells me that she's working on a new project called “Surprise Stationery Subscription,” where people can sign up to receive an “elevated envelope" stuffed with fun and beautiful letterpress stationery. 50% of the profit from each sale will go to a different animal-related charity each season, and first up for Spring 2013 is Purrfect Pals, a no-kill cat sanctuary located in Arlington, WA. Check out her website for all the details!
