WIPW - Cup Cakes

Work In Progress Wednesday.  Don't miss the progress Sharon of Pintangle has made; it's another stunning crazy quilt block created in no time!
Here is my weekly progress report on the quilt.

Kafferepet

At the traditional Swedish coffee party you start with coffee and a bun, a cinnamon roll like I showed last week, or one flavoured with cardamom, butter or custard.

After that it is time for sponge cake. It is often baked in a tin and cut into slices. Here I have 'baked' them in paper cups instead; cup cakes are called 'muffins' in Swedish. There might be some kind of filling, blueberries or nuts, or topping. I used cherries and orange peel on mine.
However much I tried to pleat the fabric for the cups, the folds were difficult to get even. Now I think they look realistic and have the air of 'home baking' stamped all over.



Then there is another daisy for one of the corners of the border. Isn't it summery?

The wonderful thing with fabric edibles is that each viewer can imagine their favourite flavour. Banana bread, cinnamon, chocolate...

Aren't they perfect? Their 'Best by Date' is also some somewhere in the far future. 2213? Now what kind of supermarket cakes would last that long?

very mouth watering but much better for the figure than the real thing! Wondered where the word muffin came from noe I know Sweden.

I love the muffins and the paper cases are fab .

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. I'm glad you like the paper cups. There was a time when I thought I would toss the whole block into the bin!

Queeniepatch said...

Good question, Margaret! I will try to research that. Watch this space!

I just had a look. Fantastic, mouth watering creations! My quilt is too flat for such 3D goodies.

Baking with fabric is fun, and no need to waste electricity or gas on heating the oven!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. I made another daisy last night and it looks awful, it must have been beaten down by a heavy shower!

Queeniepatch said...

There is only one piece of 'sweet' left to offer, then there will be metal and paper items on show.

The cupcakes look natural enough!
Making equal pleats is so difficult!
