Way back in November, about a week after my Angry Birds cake took over the internets, I was contacted by a cake magazine about featuring my work. Silly me, I assumed they meant the Angry Birds cake, so I told them, “Nooo problem! I can meet your deadline in 2 weeks, the cake is already made!” Then I got their second email with the instructions. They wanted something new, unique and never published, and they wanted…cupcakes.
Cupcakes? Unique? Seemed like a stretch for me, but I do love a challenge! So I set out to create something new. And then…the magazine imploded, and I haven’t heard from them since. So, I think I’ve waited on them long enough. I spent too many hours on these cupcakes to let the pictures gather dust on my hard drive.
Now, I love cupcakes just as much as anyone. And because I love to make tiny things out of fondant, they are especially fun to decorate. But they are lonely little critters, in their individual wrappers, separated from the rest of their dozen. So, I decided to fix that.
Call them double-cuppies, couple-cakes, cuppy-buddies, whatever you like. I present to you the most socially well-adjusted cupcakes on the planet. Because cupcakes shouldn’t be lonely!
What’s a kitty without a ball of yarn? A sad kitty, that’s what.
Why would you want a sad kitty, when you could have a happy one?
Airplanes are always fun.
But sometimes, airplanes have important things to say!
It gets cold and dark way up north in the winter time. Talk about lonely!
But when you’ve got your best buddy with you, things look a little brighter.
And, finally, it probably gets pretty lonely when you’ve been sailing the high seas, pillaging for booty.
But I guess lonely may not always be so bad.
