  • And this one too! - Laniee75
  • They remind me of "Spirograph". I used to play with it all the time at my Grandma's house.
  • That is SO FUNNY! My grandma had a Spirograph too! Must have been a popular grandma's house toy :) - Laniee75

It's all about distraction :) These cupcakes didn't look that great until I added the designs. Now you hardly notice the icing flaws :)

    my friend kwaku calls it "blinding them with the shiny", claiming that whilst he's one ugly mo-fo, that when he puts on the shiny, people flood to his "trinkets", hardly noticing his bowed-legs & snaggily toothed looks.

    and you know something? after working & going out with him for over a year, he's totally right! here's the african version of your cupcake:

    Thanks Glorious Treats! I couldn't figure out why all these people were suddenly favoriting my photos... I didn't even know about Cupcake Takes the Cake. Now I do :) I'm honored.

    You're welcome, I always try to mention it, since a few times I've not know that my things made the CTTC blog until I just stumbled upon them. Cupcakes take the Cake is the only reason I found Flickr, since I noticed all their photos say via so and so on Flickr. I'm so glad I figured it out =).
    I know I've seen cupcakes similar to these in a book at some point, did you get the idea somewhere? Either way, your designs are really great.

    Glorious Treats: I originally found the inspiration in the book "Pretty Party Cakes" by Peggy Porchen (sp?). But I don't like to do exact copies of other people's work, so I tried to make them different. I was also inspired by the many hours of playing Spirograph when I was a child :) Thanks for the compliments. I took a look at your stuff and it's outstanding!!!!! Do you make edible just for fun or do you have a business?
