Cherry Royale Cupcake

"Cherry Royale Cupcake" -- oil on canvas 6x6" -- Margie Guyot

I'd just finished "Owl" and it was only 1 PM.  No snow yet.  Big snowstorm expected tonight, dumping up to 10" by tomorrow afternoon.  It was the perfect window of opportunity to zip down to Traverse City, to SimplyCupcakes and get a few new varieties to paint.  It's about a 45 minute drive for me, so I was very happy when they gave me 4 today.  It will keep me occupied while snowbound!

Here's the description from their website (

Cherry Royale : A sour cream cake filled with our homemade tart cherry filling made with local cherries (Friske Orchards) with a thin layer of white chocolate ganache and a generous portion of cherry buttercream and topped with an Imperial red chocolate covered cherry from Cherry Republic!

I imagine it's delicious. It won't be, by the time I'm finished painting it 3 or 4 times.  There are several galleries that I want to place these cupcake paintings in, so I may as well do several paintings from each cupcake.  The chickens will get them when I'm finished.  Trying to watch my waistline, so I can't pig-out on sweets like I did when I was a kid.

Many thanks to SimplyCupcakesTC for generously providing me with cupcakes!
