Ruffle Cupcakes and Bella Cupcake Couture Party

Few weeks ago Betsy from Java Cupcake invited me to participate in a super fun Bella Cupcake Couture Blog Party,  featuring beautiful cupcake wrappers from Bella Cupcake Couture Shop.  Each blogger received a set of  pretty cupcake wrappers and then we all created cupcakes to match the  wrappers.  21 Bloggers, 21 Cupcakes Ideas. 
And there is also an amazing GIVEAWAY!
I received beautiful Bird and Blossom Wrappers, they are made from a thick textured paper and come in sets of 12. Wrapper is adjustable into 3 sizes. You can see how easy they are assembled Here.
