Illustration Friday 'Dessert'

It just had to be a fairy cake that I drew didn't it?!
Have you noticed how their name has changed to 'cupcake' over the past few years? Or am I just showing my age? ;o)

Jessie, how are you? Wonderful to hear from you. Your painting is gorgeous, I want to hug the fairy cake as much as this girl is. What a beautiful captured moment! LOVE<LOVE<LOVE! The colours you have used also, perfectly beautiful!
I have been on a spiritual mission I think. It mainlt started over my re-incarnation questioning about the painting in the London art galley by Antonello da messina. Has a Christian re-incarnation is not something spoken about and couldn't look into christianity for the answers and there I went off on a youtube adventure which led to many books. I have read more these last few months than in my entire life. Wow, what a journey.
I am so loving it.
Will be back to my art soon after the bathroom's finished. I feel all we do good and bad is eventually good experience as we learn so much from it and not to beat our selfs up about it anymore. Freedom is such a wonderful feeling. Yeah Go Jessie, free and wonderful lady! Yeah go Julie, too!
Loads of love!
Julie

I love the way she is looking at the fairy cake. I think fairy cake is absolutely perfect but I agree nearly everyone calls them cupcakes now. When my daughter found out that they use to be called fairy cakes she said 'I love fairy cakes lets make one now!'

Linda Hensley said...

Lovely!

This is so pretty, like all the commenter's are saying. Really you have captured charm and delight in all the features... I had never heard these called fairy cakes...but they are tiny.... so of course. Americans need to be more sensitive to these things. Someday I will have at least one grandchild and I will pass this on.

Beautiful, such a gorgeous face.
I always think of fairy cakes as being small and light and decidedly British whereas cupcakes are big and bold and very American.
