Cupcake and Candle

Happy Birthday!! I took cupcakes to my daughter's class yesterday for her 6th birthday, and so I was in the cupcake mood.
I had read about coloring wood with food coloring, and I thought this would be a good time to try it out. It turned out beautifully!
The cupcake top comes off and fits snuggly in it's place with a dowel. The candle is also a dowel. The flame is carved out of the top of the dowel, so the candle is all one peice.

**The candle is small, so this cupcake is not recommended for children who still like to put toys in their mouths.**
