We received this photo and email from an ATC Reader…

Hi! I stumbled across your site from Google and am glad I did! If I could sleep and breath cupcakes as well as eating them I would! I just wanted to share my new cupcake tattoo with you. It’s based on a cupcake I made and brought in to the tattoo artist. It was chocolate Guinness with Bailey’s frosting, gold dragees, and a white chocolate merken drawn on with gourmet markers. My tattoo was done at Way Cool Tattoos, Toronto, ON, CA.

How cool! Thanks for sharing! :)

Homemade or Canned Frosting?

I found this great article about canned frosting vs. homemade.

Canned Vs. Homemade – is there a difference?

I personally prefer homemade. Canned is too sweet.

What is your preference?

It would be nice to do the same with homemade cake or boxed cake mix! Can you tell the difference?
