Cupcake Inspiration Time

Could you eat something this pretty?  Well I'm more of a butter cream fan so I could probably just marvel at how pretty this one is but give me a birthday cake with those big old fluffy roses on the corner and I'm in trouble.  I don't think it would last long enough to give me any inspiration.  But this lovely cuppie which just happens to be this week's Cupcake Inspirations challenge put me in the mind of a cute Mo Manning stamp I happened to have just waiting for a chance to get inky.

can you see the butterfly charm?  click on the photo
