The Cupcake Topper Revolution!
Charlotte Cupcake Picks! 3
Cupcakes, cupcakes and more cupcakes, know matter where you go, cupcakes are taking over, in a trend I have labeled: Cupcake Chic, a term you have been hearing me say for the past 4 years, which is what I use to describe pastel, Kawaii, bakery and sweet shoppe styles and colors.

As a child I always loved cupcakes, waiting for the school and church bake sales to get those special handmade ones with the creamy frosting and sprinkles. Trips to the local bakery would be even more special because you could also get a cute cupcake topper or pick with your cupcake, birthdays and holidays would bring out the unusual in these sweet hand held treats, and their infamous toppers. Today vintage toppers can be quite valuable to collectors and sugar craft enthusiasts. Vintage artists use the toppers in projects or re-create them in a variety of sizes and styles.

To me and many others the idea of collecting Vintage Sugar Craft Accoutrements is a MAGICAL privilege, these rare sweet items can open up a world of PURE IMAGINATION. However finding these wares is hard and ones which fit in your budget, can be even harder to come by, this is what led me to re-create my own versions of vintage sugar craft items with my own twist.

In my Etsy store: Moonfaires World and in my Store front: Piddlestixs, you will find sugary sweet and unusual handmade finds, such as my variety of cupcake and cake toppers/picks.

My newest cupcake toppers are the Carnival Follies, Mer-Kewpies, Sugar Plum Kewpies and Marie's Soiree. I currently working on the expansion of the Carnival Follies, Wonderland and Side Show.
