Project Instructions
    Getting Started:
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Oven-Safe Work Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.

Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.

Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
Create 4 balls of conditioned clay. For this design we used Turnip for the cupcake liner. Guava for the frosting. Igloo for the Icing detail and sprinkles. Cowboy for the chocolate sprinkles.
Roll out the Turnip clay to a thickness of 1/8”.
Using the slicer, cut a cupcake liner shape from the clay. Press an Etch ‘n Pearl into the clay to create the lines on a cupcake liner.
Roll out the Guava clay to a thickness of 1/4". Using a circle cutter cut a circle shape.
Using the ball end of a Style & Detail tool, push the edges of the clay to create a random curved edge that resembles cupcake icing.
Flip the Guava cupcake icing over. Working toward the top, press a #8 washer into the clay. IMPORTANT: Only press the washer half-way into the clay. Remove the washer for baking.
Place the cupcake icing onto the cupcake liner. Press to secure.
Icing Detail: Roll out a tube of Igloo. Place the tube in a wavy pattern on the lower portion of the icing. Press to secure and trim the ends.
Sprinkles: Roll out a very thin tube of Igloo. Use the cutter to slice small pieces. Attach the small pieces to the cupcake icing. Repeat with the Cowboy clay.
Bake as directed in Step 1.
Once the cupcake is baked and cooled, glue the washer into the well that was created in step 7.
