I've had a thing for Hobbits and Middle Earth since I was a very little girl, so when my friend said her son wanted a Hobbit birthday party, I jumped at the chance to make some cupcakes. I was so excited there may have been some literal jumping.
The birthday boy wanted cupcakes, and I alomost instantly had this vision of each cupcake as a hobbit hole, that, when assembled, created a cupcake Shire.
I love it when things turn out (at least mostly) like they are in my imagination!!
Each little hobbit house was slightly different.
I love how the gum paste rocks I made have some cracks in them. Usually that means that I didn't roll the gum paste quite enough to get it smooth, but for rocks and pebbles, that just adds to the look.
I love Hobbits, I love anything miniature, I love cupcakes. I hit geeky-crafty gold with this project!
