A Cupcake Personality

By on June 9th, 2010 . Filed under: Crafts .

Recently I discovered Donica, an amazing woman and artist who is exploring art therapy and is enrolled in a Transpersonal Psychology program.  Simply put, transpersonal psychology is a form of psychology that studies the spiritual aspects of the human experience.  During this study she was introduced to Jung’s Archetypes, which effectively are differing but repeating patterns of thought and action that reappear time and again across people, countries and continents.

Effectively Jung indicated that we are all made up of basic archetypes, these represent a way of feeling and acting, for example ‘the mother’ – feeding, nurturing, soothing, or ‘the maiden’ – purity, desire, etc.  Jung’s Archetypes, are fascinating to read about.  Donica, has used her study to self-identify 12 archetypes which guide her.  Creatively she then matched each of these archetypes to 12 cupcake flavors, and then developed a menu of her cupcake archetypes and crocheted each.    Her cupcake archetypes are:

Warrior –  Red Chili Mango
Artist –  Starry Blueberry Night
Lover –  Strawberry Cheesecake Delight
Prostitute – Mint White Chocolate
Magical Inner Child – Funfetti Birthday Cake
Saboteur – Wild Berry
Victim – Uh-oh upside Down Pineapple
Femme Fatale – Titillating Tiramisu
Secretary – Pumpkin Danish
Messenger – Golden Angel Food Cake
Hedonist – Pink Lemondae Pleasure
Storyteller – Spicy Vanilla Chai Latte
