Cupcake of stress... by Darqx Cupcake of stress... by Darqx
...balls :XD:

So i'm not much of a cake decorator (srsly, i only just learned how to make buttercream icing a couple of weeks ago lol), but i thought i'd try my hand at making a spiffy looking cupcake for this competition :lol:

Yes, it is three tiers high and yes that is its actual size (my Fella is a point of size reference lol. My Fella is also a light gray-pink because apparently it went through the wash with something red. Idk how that happened either)

Everything on the cupcake except for the "10" sign is edible! :la: It's a basic chocolate cupcake with chocolate buttercream icing and rainbow sprinkles. The emoticons are gobstoppers which i drew on using black food colouring and a shonky paintbrush |D

Cupcake made be me [*Darqx]

Your pic now makes me hungry. I love butter cream icing!

It's nice to see an artist that does more than one medium.
