Believe it or not - it was not easy for me to get this far.  Oh how I admire those dessert artists who have rich creamy chocolate at the end of their brush.  My first two attempts for a more decent cupcake painting were a disaster.  With the first painting I thought to myself  'why am I even painting?'  With the second painting I asked myself  'will I be defeated by a $2.50 cupcake?'  'Nay!' I said. 'Nay!'  (That's how I really talk.)  So I mustered up all of my "paintin' a cupcake power" and finally this came out!  And now I am tired . . . and now I must rest . . . but first . . .
i been to taffy town
loaded with sugar -
heavy with spice -
sprinkled with cinnamon -
once, maybe twice -
filled with chocolate -
baked in a cup -
before I hit the road to taffy town

I love your cupcake painting! It is so cheerful and the chocolate on that strawberry looks divine! What a great, fun blog you have. I'm glad I found you. :)

This cupcake is making me hungrier (is this a word?).

Somehow I missed this one. Looks delicious to me and I love the poetry.
