Had a belly dance movie night at my place to watch Whatever Lola Wants and couldn’t resist making some belly dance themed cupcakes. These are chocolate with vanilla buttercream frosting. The “zills” are yellow meringues with black licorice laces stuck in them for the elastics.

beautiful! i’m always too lazy to make something cute to put on top of the frosting, but it really pays off. your frosting swirls look perfect too.
