Past Project Friday

Every Friday I will be posting some sort of crafty project that I have completed in the past.  It could be anything from baking, to sewing, needlecrafts art, decorating, etc.

Puppy dog cupcakes

Today's past project Friday goes back to 2008 - when I actually had time to sit and hand sculpt two dozen fondant puppy dogs.

Puppy dog cupcakes!

As usual, I went completely overboard when the customer only asked for simple puppy dog faces.


Even though I offer reasonable quotes and work to stay within the customer's budget, I have a hard time scaling back on execution and labor.  I want to put forth my best work - regardless of the price charged.  So usually my profits end up covering my expenses and I get screwed for my time.  But it's all about doing what you love, right?

The pink poodle is for the birthday girl

I'm not going to tell you how long these guys took to make.

You do not want to know how long it took me to make all of these

But I'm sure they made the six year old birthday girl incredibly happy.  She requested the pink poodle :)
