How to: Clay Cupcake Charms & Video

By now if you're a reader you know that my daughter's birthday theme is cupcakes! I wanted to try my hand at these cute cupcake clay charms I see all over the internet. While I appreciate the art on etsy, I can't justify spending $7 a peice for something I can make. I wanted to share so I posted a video slideshow of how I made my first two clay cupcakes.
                                         
Keep in mind this is my first 2 that I have ever made so they aren't prefect. They are going to be for a group of 8 yr old little girls so how perfect do they need to be? lol! The rolling clay part would be a fun craft woth your kids too. Just be sure that you keep them away when it comes time to bake and cool the clay. I used Sculpey clay. I imagine this would be awesome for the kind that air dries too.
