How to Make Fake Cupcakes


Photographs by Jessie Oleson

Looking for a new cupcake recipe? Make ones that are built to last and won't add to your daily intake of calories (because they're inedible) with Jessie Oleson's fake cupcake-making tutorial at Cakespy. All you need is some plaster of Paris, paint, and cupcake liners, and you're ready to go.

These fake cupcakes aren't completely random; Jessie wants you to take cupcake art to the streets. Her cupcake street art project began in January when she dispersed fake cupcakes with uplifting messages around Seattle. Do the same in your neighborhood to spread some cheer (or confuse a bunch of people).
