I love anything vaguely woodland themed, so when my friend Paula from Frog Prince Paperie told me she was designing a Little Lumberjack party, I asked if I could make some cupcake toppers for her.
I love getting a chance to be creative and make fun new things for my friends!
I had to have gum paste axes and saws, of course. I discovered, quite by accident, that if you use a slightly serrated steak knife to cut the gum paste, you'll end up with perfect miniature teeth on your miniature gum paste saw!
I love how these wooden/tree #1 cupcake toppers (for the one year old birthday boy, of course) turned out!

Woodland Lumberjack Gum Paste Cupcake Toppers
A couple of tree stumps seemed just right for a lumberjack party, but even tree stumps can still be great habitats for wildlife, like my bunny heading into his hole!
I attempted to make a buffalo check plaid scarf for the squirrel. That did not go well. Sticking with the white was a much better decision. ;-)
I can't wait to see all of the photos from the party! I'll update the post with a link to the event as soon as it's posted.
