This little cupcake is a good image to do in repetition for me, because it's wry/sweet and because I am learning a lot about the greys necessary to make whipped cream and even when to put the paint down. White goes first! There are many folds in the icing, so it has to be simplified and sort of architectural, and I have to really understand how the folds occur. If I am sort of vague about that, I soon have a mess. I had to yell at the HEB baker for putting too much icing on them -- how to paint it if it is slopping over its own self? What was he thinking?
