What can you do with WHITE!

When I visited the Flower Soft booth at Winter CHA, I discovered the Polar White Flower Soft and I knew it was my new "most favorite"! It is the best for snow and lace but I am the kind of gal where something has to be good for more then just two things. So...I got to thinking...what else could I use Polar White Flower Soft for? I have one big motto in my crafting and that is EXPERIMENT. And that is what I set out to do. I always figure that if I experiment, I might fail but I also just might find a new technique that I love.
Here is a peek at my finished project. I created two little tags to go along with the challenge at Little Red Wagon to create tags. Now, to explain what I decided to do. I got to thinking, "what would happen if I colored the frosting on my cupcakes with a really strong color, then gave that a good coat of the Tacky Glue and then a good coat of the Polar White Flower Soft?" Would my frosting just be white which would be alright or would the underneath color take over and show through?

Here is a closeup of what happened. I colored this frosting with a strong pink/red Copic marker. If you have worked with the Tacky Glue, you know that it goes on white. I gave that a very generous coat of the Polar White Flower Soft and left it to dry. This glue dries rather quickly so before long, I start to gently pat the Flower Soft into the glue to make sure lots of the little granules are going to stay when the glue dries. As it dried, I could see that my thoughts were going to work just perfectly, the frosting took on the underneath color. In a way, it almost looks like coconut on the frosting.

For this cupcake, I used a strong yellow Copic marker and then the Polar White Flower Soft. Doesn't this look almost good enough to eat?

Here is another view of the yellow tag.

Here is another view of the red tag. The stamps are from the $1 spot and they are by Studio G. I am so into cupcakes right now, the kind you really eat so some cupcake stamps are just perfect and make for some cute tags to attach to a gift.
