Frequent readers of this blog and Twitter followers (thank you to my tweeps!) know that my crew and I spent last weekend filming new Soap Queen TV Episodes. Filming for an entire weekend takes serious sustenance so we had a dozen cupcakes delivered from Cupcake Royale (my favorite cupcake shop in Seattle). Believe it or not, we had 2 cupcakes left over. I dropped them off at my talented friend’s house, artist Lisa McShane. Instead of eating the cupcakes (talk about dedication to her craft!), she painted them. Didn’t she do a great job? The bottom left is the enchanting Red Velvet and the top right is the charming Chocolate Salted Caramel.
[Cupcake Aside: After starting on this blog earlier today, I had to stop in to Wink Cupcakes in Queen Anne to get my cupcake fix. If only Cupcake Royale had a Queen Anne store; then I would have been completely sated. As it is, I’m still craving one of their Chocolate Salted Caramel cupcakes. The mini-cupcake from Wink didn’t quite fulfil the void like a Chocolate Salted Caramel can. (I’m probably being unfair. In reality, it never stood a chance. The Chocolated Salted Caramel are just. that. good.)]
Check out Lisa’s blog, 1,000 Paintings and Etsy site, Lisa McShane Art. If you’re in the mood for a sweet pastry painting for your wall, definitely snatch up a piece of Lisa McShane original art. You’ll be in good company; we purchased this piece last month.
