nautical baby shower cupcakes

a highschool friend contacted me about doing some nautical themed cupcakes for her baby shower. She gave me free reign and this is what i came up with. the stamped "R" disks were done with the rubber scrap booking stamps, easy and effective....i have a step by step tutorial of this from last year if you're interested.

I drew the little anchors and drew little "R"s on the sailboats with edible writing markers. Basically the ink is food coloring :)

Here's a closer look, i hope you like them :)


Let me know what you think!
