Wow! These are gorgeous!!! Did you make these? The cupcake in the tea cup is amazing and the tags are beyond.

I host a weekly meme called SEASONAL SUNDAYS which is all about what the season means to YOU. It's fun to see everyone's different take on the season. I'd love to have you come and join us.

Oh so cute....Did your great-grandmother purchase that teacup or was it given to her? I bet it has an interesting history. Who's the maker?

Very nice teacup and cupcake! And also a gorgeous idea to place the teacups under the cloche : it's a victorian-shubby charming style!!

So pretty, Maryjane! One question...did you bake the cupcake in the cup? It looks as though it fits just perfectly, so I was wondering. I would love to use this idea for my daughter's birthday party!
