Ribbon and Old Lace

Good morning everyone!

A few years back on holiday in Ireland, we went to see a play in Kilkenny called 'Arsenic and Old Lace'. It was hilarious, we were howling with laughter! I later discovered it is actually a movie from the 40s. This great experience came to mind when I saw the theme for this week's Fab 'n Funky challenge "Ribbon & Lace". I'm not much of a ribbon/lace user, so this was actually pretty difficult for me to come up with something fab or funky ;) Let's hope these cupcakes aren't laced with arsenic, that would put quite a dampener on things LOL.
