My friend Angela opened her new salon this week and after recently visiting her new "digs", I wanted to make something cute for her Grand Opening. As always, my creativity "chip" kicks into high gear while I'm laying in bed trying to fall asleep. I actually keep a notepad on my nightstand. Am I a freak or what? Anyway, this idea has been rolling around in my head for a while........it just wouldn't go away! So I finally gave in to it, not only because it's a cute idea....but so I could finally get some sleep!
(all together now........Oooooooooooh!)
And actually, I was going to put the "girls" on sticks instead of top of cupcakes......but then, it sort of freaked me out. What the heck was I going to call them anyway....PopHeads?....PopGirls?.......or worse, (horrors) HairPops? Yuck, yuck and double yuck. I'll save that freakshow for another chapter.

I just couldn't shake the feeling that dozens of little eyes were on me all night. Did you ever have that feeling?
Nancy Nutfree is a cute but middle-aged double-processed wanna-be. Because of her love for the spotlight she has been known to stray from her Cupcake Girl friends to hang with a mysterious lone cookie named Chip and occasionally, the Pillsbury Doughboy. It's fame she's after and will stop at nothing until she has it. Unfortunately, she has had the same hairstyle since the 1992 revision of Betty Crocker, yet continues to refuse an update. She desperately wants to be the blond bombshell Cupcake Girl, but in reality we know she's just bombed. Period.
So there you have it, my Cupcake Girls in all their glory. And like some of the girls you might know, they're not perfect either. So now that every one's been introduced, let's pack up and head out. The girls are headlining (pardon the pun) at the Grand Opening of a salon today!
Coincidentally, Cupcake Girls Blanche Bakewell and Molly Macaroon didn't attend the Grand Opening due to the fact that they each ripped their paper liners in what they termed as a "freak accident" during their overnight stay in the refrigerator. It sure looked like a cat fight to me, but after questioning the surrounding leftovers, I found that no one wanted to talk about "the accident"...including the Girls.
