Have cupcake and eat it, well, light it!

Erik is the guy who gave us the foosball rail! He’s back and he’s serving cupcakes. Aren’t they just sweet?

“We threw a cupcake birthday party for my friend’s daughter and I knocked together a couple of cupcake lamps. I used: Ekas shades in off-white, Hemma cord sets, Smycka artificial flowers, lace bowls and plates from the thrift store. Lots of ribbons and small things from just about every drawer and leftovers box in the house. And a glue gun.”

The real cupcakes he makes are pretty awesome too.
