Cupcake alternative design.

As part of each City & Guilds piece you have to show an alternative design. This could be just a drawing but I decided to make a quilt sample.
I have used a different cupcake shape and have used the bondaweb method of applique followed by hand stitched blanket stitching around the shapes. No tucks and no trapunto so a much flatter design.
Here are two of the cupcakes in close up.

And here is the completed mini quilt top.
I am now going to back it, hand quilt around each cupcake and bind it in a black and white spot fabric.
Only thing is.....I wonder what happens if you actually prefer your alternative design..........?

There's a 3D look to the cup cakes.
