"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 (www.simplycupcakestc.com):
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!
