Cupcake Gift Card Holder

Okay so this is too cool for words! I saw it on You Tube and instantly went "I have to make one!!" This was done as a little girls birthday gift, but would suit anyone of any age or gender - for a man I would put more white "icing" and a different top embellishment - maybe a red wooden bead with some green florists wire to make a sort of cherry on top effect??

Is that awesome or what? Almost good enough to eat isn't it! But it gets better - lft up the lolly (sweet/candy) shaped button and ta da.........

It's a gift card holder.

and finally a top view of both pieces, doesn't the rouche ribbon look effective as fake whipped cream?
