This cupcake pot is the definition of sweet, to be sure! I love the red accents, they go so well with this light shade of blue. Painting projects like this are extremely relaxing, and it would be easy to substitute some colors for others if you wanted to make different colored cupcakes. If you want to make your garden even sweeter and get a chance to relax with some painting in the process, I'd recommend this tutorial!
