Choc and Van Cupcakes Birthday Card

Created this Birthday Card with Chocolate & Vanilla Cupcakes. Used Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge to cut the cupcakes at 3".  Used core'dinations brown & white cardstock for cupcakes along with core'dinations Citrine for cupcake wrapper. Trimmed off the heart on top of cupcakes. Used Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl embossing folder for cupcakes frosting swirl look. Added Crystal Stickles to cupcakes frosting.  Used Recollections Cupcake Cuties cardstock & cupcake ribbon. Used Spellbinders Shapeabilities Nested Pennants for tag. Used Mark's Finest Papers Big Cats 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' sentiment & Memento Rich Cocoa ink to stamp sentiment on tag.

Who likes Chocolate & who likes Vanilla Cupcakes? I like both. My hubby & daughter like Chocolate best. 

I have not used cupcake wrappers/liners in a long time. I bought Silicon cupcake wrappers and have been using them over & over again. When I first heard about Silicon cupcake wrappers /liners I was not sure how they would hold up in the oven or clean up. They hold up fine in oven. They clean up nicely after each use. They are best for home cupcakes and not ones that you are taking somewhere because then they may get thrown out. Does anyone else use the Silicon cupcake wrappers/liners.
