Yes it's more cake, I need to start drawing other things. Cupcakes are so in fashion at the moment though and to be fair this is only a very small part of another much much bigger project. (which ISN'T all about cake) You will see at the end of the year!Anyway, as you can see (above) I have been practicing drawing things NOT using black line because usually I outline EVERYTHING. I'm quite pleased with some of the results :)These ones (above) do have black line. You can see the difference. I have been experimenting with it, seeing what looks better. I'd be grateful for any comments on this subject!
Have you ever been to Candycakes in London? It's an amazing cupcake shop! This is the window display there:They have flavours like lemon poppyseed and chocolate fudge and everything is brightly coloured- it's an explosion for your eyes! You get them in a box like this:(Actually to be honest the second time I had a cake from here it wasn't that great but I think it's worth going to just for the window display and colours. Its like Willy Wonka land!)
On that same day we also went to Fortnum and Masons in London and walked past a load of patisserie kind of shops:The window displays in Fortnum and Masons were wicked!Inside the shop though I was shocked to see they were selling OVEN ROASTED TARANTUALAS!!! They looked horrible! And also chocolate covered ants and scorpians inside lollies. Weird. Everything was already decorated for christmas. There were boxes of crackers for five HUNDRED pounds! Haha bit out of my price range!
Designer cupcakes, frog king cupcakes, halloween cupcake, flamingo cupcakes...
And here's another example of where I have been experimenting with not using black line. You can definitely see the difference where i have done the tray of hearts at the bottom with and without:I think I prefer the ones without black line. What do you think?
I promise my next post will not be as sickly as this one!
