Cupcake 160...The Darkside

Good morning crafters, it’s time for another Cupcake Craft Challenge and before we announce this week’s challenge we would like to thank everyone who entered our back to school challenge last week...we received some really fab entries and the Cupcakes loved visiting your blogs to see your creations!

We would also like to thank everyone who left entries for our 'Choose the Challenge' Competition...there are some brilliant suggestions and the winner will be announced this space for an announcement!!!

So onto this week’s challenge which has been chosen by our gorgeous Cupcake Delphine. Now, you could be forgiven for thinking we have a Star Wars theme for you this week but you can breathe a huge sigh of relief that we aren’t asking you to incorporate anything that remotely resembles the Star Wars universe!

What we are asking is that you create a project using the colours BLACK & PURPLE hence the theme…


Please remember that the main colours of your project must be BLACK and can stamp onto a neutral base and use skintones and hair (unless you want purple or black hair) but otherwise your creation must be purple and black!

You have until 8pm, GMT on Sunday 25th September to place your entry for this challenge!


We have a winner for last weeks sponsored Challenge and we’ve also chosen our Cupcake Cuties.

Here are the winners…
