Susan Roden has been flinging frosting at me during this Frosting Fight! All the way from California I took hits this weekend~! This delicious cupcake was only ONE of a dizzying array of flavors (I can vouch for the Strawberry!) of beautiful cupcakes at the new CupCakery in Westport, MA. The only fault I see is they somehow (?) have neglected to make coconut cupcakes. Anyway I've been busy getting ready for my Open Studio next weekend, getting set for my Painting Class this coming Thursday in my studio - AND I've had a wonderful visit from friend and fellow blogger Amy Hillenbrand! My husband and I took Amy and her husband Bob on a "3 hour tour" (a la Gilligan) of Rhode Island. We me in Carol Marine's class in Santa Fe, and she invited me to stay with her when our Workshop Women (from that class) had a reunion in Austin this past January. It is amazing that blogging brings friendships that are so dear and wonderful - what a thrill to be a part of all this! As a younger woman - heck, 5 years ago I never could have imagined I'd be 'friends' with women I've never seen in person! Long story - sorry.
Below, I will show you cupcake #2 - also was wiped out to make way for the more successful one, above. It had no...ooomph. Boring composition. Yes, it was a recognizable cupcake - but, as they say on the South Shore of Boston - it did not survive the 'so what?' question. So I changed the composition, and background color, and I think it's better. You?
