Old Photos Used For Cake and Cupcakes and Invitations

First was the invitations, using an old photo of my Mom when she was about 16. This was created at http://www.vistiprint.com/ but many sites offer printing cards and invitations.
Old photos used for cake and cupcake decorations.

One of the first entries in my blog was about this camera made into a photo holder, I did remake the wire holders with better wire.

The cake, which I made myself, also used and old photo which was made into an edible image by http://www.gogocake.com/. I sent them the photo via the Internet and they sent me the product and directions which anyone can do. One thing I want to tell you about is I actually took a macro photo of the old photo so I could have it large enough for the cake, because the scanner I have did not scan it large enough for them to get a good image from it.

Now for the cupcakes, the photos were scanned and in a printshop program I made them into little circles and cut other circles out of old pages from an old paperback book, the back paper was just scrapbook paper I had from another project. The three circles gradually got bigger and were glued together with 2 toothpicks taped to the back.
Do you remember the blog post with this stand for the cupcakes? If not you can go back and check it out. http://junkinjane.blogspot.com/2010/05/here-it-is-finished-whatever-it-was-or.html
