Why the drama, you ask? Well, my paint group, Pieces of Eight, is planning an exhibition later this year featuring baked goods. I have a very bad track record painting cupcakes, so far none of my tries have survived the dreaded wipe-off. So I decided to practice a little. I decided to pump the colors up as much as I could (more drama) and miracle of all miracles, I liked it! So this may be my only cupcake painting on record. I may not push my luck and try for another.
