Will Cotton Cupcake Tiaras

By on Monday, January 24th, 2011

A few months ago there was a Food & Wine issue that featured an piece on Will Cottons.  Will Cotton is a New York based painter known for creating landscapes inspired by sweets.  Most recently he is known for having painted fellow cupcake lover, Katy Perry which appeared on the December 2010 cover of ARTnews. What caught my eye in the Food & Wine article was Cotton Candy Hannah, 2009 which is shown above.  The description reads:

Pink cotton candy clouds are the backdrop for many of Will Cotton’s portraits. The model in this oil painting is wearing a cupcake tiara that Cotton created for workers at his NYC pop-up bakery.

A cupcake tiara as part of the employee uniform! The Will Cotton Bakery was part of Partners & Spade and I would have loved to work there if it meant getting to wear a cupcake tiara! Below is an image of the employees wearing their uniform.

Nerdcake of the week: Angry Birds

By on Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

One of the most popular apps for the iphone or the ipad is Angry Birds, so you know, it was only a limited time before someone came up with awesome cupcake toppers!  In this case it is the Artisan Cake Company who have an Etsy shop and sell these little guys so that you can top your own cupcakes!

The photo below is of all the angry birds characters, which is fantastic, but I really love the pigs here to the right.  They are so cute, except for when you are playing and you cannot pass a level, then their cheeky grin makes me angry!

Cupcake and bird tattoos

By on Friday, January 21st, 2011

Today I found one of the most beautiful cupcake tattoos I have seen.  It combines the love of cupcakes with a love of birds into one amazing tattoo.  This one I found by way of  Stephen Young.  The tattoo however is by Curtis Burgess from Tribal Rites Tattoo and Piercing in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Although I am unlikely to have a tattoo like this I would love this picture as a piece of art!
