Cupcakes, Candy and Ice Cream!

This was the latest challenge set on the Mumsnet Arts & Crafts Forum:

Cupcakes, Candy and Ice Cream- A Craft Challenge
Who can resist the lure of freshly baked and iced cupcakes, sticky sweet candy, and ice cream melting on a hot summer day? This challenge is to craft something with a cupcake, candy or ice cream theme an essential part of summertime and of childhood. Knit an ice cream cone, paint a cupcake, make a card with candy shapes, create jewellery in candy coloured tones, or create softies in candy coloured fabrics. If you need more inspiration feel free to sit down with a bar of chocolate, or a bowl of ice cream, or a handful of your children’s gummy sweets, essential crafting materials most assuredly. So have fun and try not to get too much of a sugar high.

And here is what I came up with (although it seemed to have taken me forever to get round to making it!!). The beads just remind me of wrapped sweets.

That's lovely. If I had it I wouldn't know whether to wear it, frame it or eat it!!
