Cupcake Prop/Party Decoration

I have so many clients who book me for birthday photo sessions and I wanted to make something to use as a prop that was birthday without screaming birthday.

So we went to Lowe's and bought a piece of 1/2" plywood that would soon become 4 feet of sweet cupcake goodness.

I freehanded the shape of a cupcake 4,691,264 times on my piece of plywood.

After I got it just how I wanted it, I used my jigsaw to cut the shape mostly on the lines.

Since I wanted to get the most bang for my buck, I painted one side pink, blue, green and red and the other side is brown, blue and red for the boys.

Whadaya think? Cute huh?

Maybe this little big prop will make me millions! Everyone has loved it so far.

Check out the link parties where I am sharing this week for more inspiration!
