I liked John Lucas’s cupcakes over at wood magazine so thought I would give it a try.Turned them and had to make a jig to route the grooves.Died the cupcake bases, left the walnut cupcake natural and used bondo for the icing and painted with acrylic paint.John threaded his for a screw on box top,but i made mine with a friction fit top.for the Chocolate chips I turned them from Indian Rosewood.
