My submission for Karin Jurick's DSFDF. I didn't
participate last time. But this subject is near and dear
to my heart. I love cupcakes almost as much as
Watermelon. My inner 4 year old wants cupcakes for
every meal. I do my best to control her but must admit
she wins way too often! SNARF!

Hi Gwen,

for some reason some of my comments don't get through. It could be my non-techie brain doing something wrong. So I loved the horse apple, and love this cupcake. Everything you paint is irresistable.

Great cup cake painting Gwen, I'm starting mine tomorrow. When I saw Karin's photo it made me immediately hungry for cupcakes and I found this great blog with recipes for cup cakes
