Different Cupcakes

This was my effort at the Different Srokes image this go round. I was excited to try it but once I got started it seemed like a lot of work. I don't know why. Even the sprinkles were not fun. Mabye I've watched one too many episodes of Cake Boss or Ace of Cakes or Cake Challenge or Amazing Wedding Cakes... or hmm, maybe I should stop watching so much tv and get back in the studio and practice!
The frosting gave me fits. Mine looks like someone smashed their hand down on it. I dont have those nice soft curves in it like a Dairy Queen cone. I may have to try some new variations on this. Or go the to the kitchen and try my luck with sugar and butter.

Two chocolate and one white, that's a good mix! Even without the Dairy Queen swirls, it still looks delish!

I think your icing looks fluffy and delicious - I do like your idea of going to the kitchen to mix up some 'practice' icing! YUM!!!

I ultimately ended up taking looking smooshed frosting myself. I'm just lucky I got the paint in the right spot! LOL I think your work came out just perfectly, Kathleen. Yummo!

Ann - who can ever decide- I want TWO - one vanilla, one chocolate!

Claire - thanks,but I may try one as an ACEO and see if I can make those swirls.

Oh I don't see any of the frustrations you had! I think it's a charming piece!
But yes, in times of frustration, something sugary usually does the trick. :)
