Key Lime Cupcake

"Key Lime Cupcake" -- oil on canvas 6x6" -- Margie Guyot

There's a new bakery in Traverse City called SimplyCupcakes.  My friend Pete took me over there a few days ago.  I bought three, with the idea of doing a grouping of cupcake paintings.  The coconut one got eaten before I could paint it!

This one had a lime creme filling inside, topped with lime curd, frosting and grated lime peel and bits of graham cracker crumbs.  Horribly delicious!

The most challenging thing was figuring out how to paint the paper liner.  

I had a cup of hot tea with lemon and ate this afterward.  YUM!
