Like Velvet Cake

I bought my husband some Trader Joe's Red Chocolate Velvet cupcakes a while back, then took a picture of one to paint. I don't bake sweets much. It's not that I can't. I can. But I don't eat much in the way of sweets and try hard not to keep much in the house - gotta watch his waistline! I'm so much more a savory person (but then you knew that, didn't you?) So anywhoo, this cupcake will be resurfacing soon now that I've got its mugshot. I did enjoy painting it so much more that the latest previous quick pass at the lightbulb (deleted that one to repost a better pic) and its so much more edible.

  1. Great painting Karen,especially the frosting!! I so wish I was'nt a sweet addict!!

    1. Thank you Azra! I'm OK around sweets, but stand back if there are chips about!

  2. Nice cupcake Karen, it looked so real I had to take a closer look! Great job!

  3. Love this! Frosting is impressive but that bit of cake showing on the left is great realism - has that slight sheen and almost translucent look that cake has. Beautiful work. ♥

  4. Great piece Karen! Haven't been blogging for a while but am glad to be back. Revamped my blog. Check it out!

  5. The topping looks so whipped and tempting...uhmmm, well done !
