Baker man.

Friday was Maxi's turn at being Baker man at school. He was so excited when he got home & saw me baking these cute cupcakes for him to take the next day. Vanilla cake with cherry flavored butter icing...his favorite.


Nothing could beat his expression when he saw the cupcake toppers I made though.

I scanned a Sassafras sun sticker, layered them onto a circle frame in Photoshop, added a curved sentiment, which incidentally is the little saying his teacher says to the kiddies every morning when they arrive at school. Then printed a page of them on stiff card stock & punched them out with my 2" scalloped circle from EK Success. I then cut bamboo skewers into 3rds & taped them to the back.

When I saw the kids faces light up upon our arrival at the classroom door, this little bit of sunshine was worth every extra second it took me. His teacher said nearly all of the children insisted on taking their toppers home with them, even though they had already eaten the cupcakes.

*Being a Mom rocks in times like this, especially when your little boy tells you a gazillion times how much he loved being the Baker man that day.*

If you want to print & make your own toppers, I have a free download here for you here.
Enjoy....please link me up to your projects if you use the link. I'd love to see them.
Thanks for stopping by & have a super day!
